    Installing replacement liner inside of Intex 18' metal frame

    Well here is the original pool that started this whole thread. Lasted from April 2012 to August 2017. Left it up all year long. I knew this was going to be the last year. Was going to replace the replacement liner after this year due to hail and sun damage from the past 5 years. A lot of the...

    Installing replacement liner inside of Intex 18' metal frame

    The overlap liners are not meant to hold the outward pressure of the water without wall support from the intex liner. That is why on a usual above ground pool they have walls to support the liner. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Installing replacement liner inside of Intex 18' metal frame

    Good grief!!! That is cold. I don't think putting a patch on the inside on the new liner will do much good. It would have to be between the old liner and the new liner. I think the tape on the inside should be fine as long as you stretched it past the hole a ways so the ends don't push out.

    Installing replacement liner inside of Intex 18' metal frame

    Did you put anything on the inside and with tape or just put tape on the outside? I can't remember what material I put inside to try and keep it from bulging out but mine did it anyways. Only difference is there is something kinda helping it stay more on the inside but it's hard to tell. It's...

    Installing replacement liner inside of Intex 18' metal frame

    It looks great from the pictures. When I did mine I put the tarp clips on and had long string on it so I could fasten them loosely. Just enough that the liner would not flop back into the pool (like it did the first time I did it). Then when it was full I snugged them up just enough so there is...

    My personal opinion is a 30 gauge would be an overkill. 25 gauge seems to be more than enough. As long as you have a really good ground cover underneath a 25 if fine.

    Installing replacement liner inside of Intex 18' metal frame

    Yea I don't think it would work on the ultra frame but would be awesome on the regular type frame. It would make it look pretty cool. As long as the kids don't take them off and play with them. Hahahaha. I would probably still tie the line down just for peace of mind.

    Installing replacement liner inside of Intex 18' metal frame

    Well here is an update of the original pool that started this thread. It's been 4 years now and still holding water. I have replaced most of the tarp grabbers starting I think after the third year due to them finally weather cracking and breaking. I just bought some and would replace one when...

    Installing replacement liner inside of Intex 18' metal frame

    I didn't want to take a chance on the drain cutting the new liner so that's why I cut them out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Installing replacement liner inside of Intex 18' metal frame

    You can just use some thick string. That's what I used which I'm the original poster of this and the string is still working fine. You just have to have enough tightness to keep the liner from flapping back over so doesn't take much to secure it. I'm so so glad to see this whole idea has help so...

    Do pool covers pay for themselves?

    I replace mine once a year unfortunately. I live in Oklahoma and every year always have a bad hail storm when I'm not able to remove the cover. 16mil and the big hail goes right through. Like everyone else says it does help keep the evaporation down. It will raise the water temp a lot in the...

    Installing replacement liner inside of Intex 18' metal frame

    I used adhesive between the new liner and the rubber gasket. I didn't put any between the liners. I just did it to make sure the liner didn't pull away from the gasket. I don't think it does or will so it might not be needed. I cut my hole the same size as the original hole on the intex liner...

    OMG!!!! I am jealous of your pool. That looks so great. The next liner I get is going to have a pattern. If I had known this would have worked and liner last this long I would have done the pattern liner instead of just plain blue. LOL. Thanks for sharing.
