    Mildew on sand under liner

    We are replacing our liner today after a blowout a few weeks ago. We found this when we pulled it up. What, if anything, do we need to do before putting in the new liner? We have a foam pad for bottom and a foam cove.

    *Update* Above ground liner blowout and sand washout HELP!!

    So, we were wrong about it being dirt and then sand. It’s crusher run & sand. Would a retaining wall with rebar & concrete pad up to pool edge work? I’m thinking the backfill let go.

    Tear at the seam of the liner!

    The vinyl in the patch kits is Crud. I use the glue & the gorilla patch and seal tape. It’s thicker and works awesome. Just fold it on to itself and unfold when you dive to the hole

    *Update* Above ground liner blowout and sand washout HELP!!

    There was no leak there & we didn’t notice any sand. I believe that the sand shifted & the liner burst at the seam....right where the jet was aimed. We just put a new filter in and it was moving major water! The three days prior... I had never seen such clear water! Haha My husband is thinking...

    Yes. Deck is all the way around. Ugh! I’m scared of this whole process! My husband is very handy and his friend is experienced at putting liners in due to having a pool for 30 years....but this is a lot

    *Update* Above ground liner blowout and sand washout HELP!!

    We bought a house and have an 18’ above ground pool which was already here. It is in the back deck and we have been loving it...until, we swam all day and went to a wedding. Upon our return, the pool was empty! The sand apparently washed out on the low side (I realize that level has no low side)...
