    pool liner is to tight or!

    this is our first pool and we followed directions very carefully and the liner went on just as described but while i was trying to take wrinkles out i realized 2 sides of our round pool (when standing by one spot the spot directly across is the same way) the other 2 sides are perfect. we decided last min to raise the blocks up under it and make it a little higher, this was before the liner install and the sand but i thought maybe the liner was tight because we raised it up. we took the top blocks out from under it and its still the same tightness. there is about 3 inches of water in the pool mostly rain water. the seam that goes up the wall is perfectly straight the seam along the floor looks a little high though. what can i do? will the liner just conform after water is added or should i be doing something. its a 21' round pool

    It should be fine. It will stretch to conform to the walls. Don't worry about it being a little tight.

    Is the diameter the same all around? A little out of round can really mess with the liner fit.
