    Excess liner when installing

    New pool arrived on Wednesday. We spent Thursday & Friday after work finishing site prep & leveling pavers. We have run into an issue with size of the pool and excess liner. We have to widen out the area of the whole pool so that there is not excess liner. Any suggestions on the best way to do that?

    Pool Supports sank on one side - Clean fill question

    Hello everyone! I have a 24' round above ground pool that was installed before I moved in (it sounds like possibly 20 years ago). It was built in a hill with retaining walls on the high and low sides. When we moved in we saw the wall on the low side was leaning out. Over the past 3 years it...

    Buckling walls and tight liner

    Hello! We had been given a 27’ x 54” deep AGP from my cousin. Set up was tedious but went well but now I’m having panic attacks! I am attaching pictures of our wall. The first pic is how the wall looked without water (and even with the first 5-10” in). The next pics are all what I woke up to...

    Hello, Hoping someone can help me. This is the first time I've owned a pool. We have a 18' Intex pool that will be put up and taken down each year after summer and has sand under it which helped to level it. Our hose attached to the pump came off and water gushed out causing the sand directly...

    New pool filling. Leak or Condensation

    We just bought and are 75% finished installing a 18’8” I text pool. There is 14” of water in it. I notice a small area while installing side panel slats that there was a little bit of water between the liner and the tarp. All other areas that could still be checked were fine. The area the water...

    All, We've started digging today for a budget pool build. We purchased two sets of used steel walls and are going to reuse them for a 16' x 36' inground pool (purchased a liner that was ordered the wrong dimensions). My question is this: I have enough walls to do the complete 16' x 36' pool...

    Above Ground Step Help

    Hi all, We’re going to be purchasing our first pool shortly. We’re going with a semi-inground built into our deck. We're slightly budget-restricted, but pretty handy....

    Pool Leak

    I suspected a leak all last season, but now that the pool is closed I definitely have a leak. My pool has lost water down to only about a foot of water in the pool since it was closed. So does it mean it's the liner, since everything is plugged and closed? So sad that the liner only got 6...

    Freshly Installed Liner - lots of wrinkles. Suggestions?

    So I (finally) got my pool up today and started filling it. Not long after I realized, dang it - we really didn't do the best job with the overlap liner. There are lots of wrinkles and in some areas we did not pull the liner over the top very much at all. Is this a sound installation? Is it...

    Is this seam fine..?

    Is this seam fine in the attached image? Originally started leaking after being filled up for a day and in the pic is the patch behind it (also added one in front) that the company sent since it’s a brand new liner. You can see the shadow of the seam overlap and how thin it gets, and it got...

    Anchoring Pool Liner Extrusion - Wood vs Concrete ?

    Hello Everyone, I'm having some masonry repair work done on my IGP walls to support a new liner extrusion. The mason is recommending that he build the wall up an 1.5" higher and avoiding using the PT wood to support the liner extrusion. The pool contractor doing the liner is fine with this...

    Hey everyone! So, my pool is about 15 years old, and the liner had a pinhole leak in it.
