    Reef liner trouble

    Not Sure,But,word of advice the one we had started fading within the day that I started filling.I had issues with wrinkles so it took me a few days before having filled all the way.Was completely faded after the season.Warranty doesn't cover fade either.I have found a liner yet that doesn't fade.
