    Backyard build in Central Texas, POOL IS UP!!!

    I can't either. I think they may have gotten lost with the most recent server upgrade. The newer pictures later in the thread seem fine.

    Best solution for the main drain problem

    I find that the main drains are helpful in the fall and spring when the water level is below the skimmer. Without the main drains I wouldn't have any way to circulate the water when the water level is low. During normal operation I don't normally use them because I want to skim what is on the...

The soil is extremely sandy, so once it...

    AGP Liner Material

    Does anyone know if there is a difference in the material used for an expandable liner compared to a standard liner? Does a non-expandable liner not stretch like an expandable would?

    aboveground pool

    Are you talking diameter (as in a 28' liner in a 27' pool), or height? Extra height can be overlapped. Extra diameter is going to be a problem.
