    New Liner stretch concern

    Hello everyone,
    I just finish converting from an overlap liner to a beaded liner and when I started filling it I notice that it may be too tight.

    I know people are saying it can stretch but I'm worried.

    Here is the link for the pictures:

    I can't tell, but when I had an ago, I remember that I needed to be in while filling it to smooth out the bottom toward the sides.

    I looked at it today and it is a lot more flexible then yesterday (lot warmer outside). Now my concern is the liner is tighter on one side of the pool. Should I drain the water and recenter it? There's not much water in it.

    Thanks

    There are some really good liner install videos on YouTube. I've only ever done overlaps so I'm not much help. Good luck!

    Well like they all said, on a hot day it will stretch no problem. It did not need to stretch that much but It was my first time installing a pool liner.

    How's it look Philippe? Looks like you did a good job. Is it full?

    It's getting there, I'm filling the pool with water from a well, so it's not going very fast and also there's been quite a few days of cold temperature.
    But so far I find the water to be a too little clear, I'm worried about vacuuming all summer long...
