    walls bowing

    We are installing a 30 ft round pool. We are to the point of filling and realized that the beaded liner that we have has a lot of stretching to do to fit. We have about a foot of water in it now and it is starting to bow the sides of the pool in a couple of places. Is this normal or should we be concerned don't want to colapse the pool.

    With a beaded liner make sure you fill (slowly at first 24") during the day under a HOT sun. Our pool walls bowed a little bit at first but eventually the water pressure equalized everything. If we had used a pool water delivery truck our pool would have most definitely collapsed when fast filled. Next time I am doing an overlap liner---less stress with the fill. Good luck with the pool

    It is normal but don't fill at night like Paul stated. It needs filled under the hot Sun.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
