    Floating liner question

    We got hit with massive rain for the last week and my liner floated.

    I have been gently and slowly coaxing it back into place all morning. The shallow end is back under water but still floating. Can I turn the pump back on to start filtering or should I wait? I have everywhere else back into place but still has some water under it and I can still push it around with my brush.

    Re: Floating liner question

    I've had a similar issue down here in Little Rock. I still have a fair amount of bubbling, but my liner is staying in place for the most part. This is our first spring with a pool, so I can't offer much advice, but I can certainly empathize.

    How's your situation this evening?

    Yes you can start filtering again. Give it 30 minutes and see if there is any movement.

    You need to strongly consider a french drain or dry wells to deal with the water. If it happens once it will again.

    I have everything back in place and the filter has been running. We have been hit with torrential rain. The area has been declared a disaster area.
