    Wrinkle in new vinyl liner

    We put in a new liner last fall before we closed. Opened this season and it was perfect.
    I've now got a wrinkle in the liner. When we phoned the pool place they told us it's because we keep our pool too warm?????
    That just didn't make sense to me as it happened after 3 days of very cool temperatures here. And.....we keep our pool around 28/29 C which I didn't think was that warm.
    Does this sound reasonable to anyone out there who works for pool stores or has had vinyl liner wrinkles?
    Thanks

    Have you had a lot of rain lately? It could be there is some ground water behind the liner and that is causing the wrinkle.

    The warm water thing I don't understand, unless they are saying the the warmth of the water made the liner more pliable, and therefore more wrinkly??

    You can get it out with a toilet plunger. I would personally see if the pool company would come out and do it, but it sounds like they are balking at the idea....

    I agree. I don't see warm water having anything to do with it...I have had my water up to 92 degrees....the same wrinkles that were there upon installation are still there, 7 years later. NO more no less.

    We've had no more rain than any other time so I don't think that is the problem.
    I really think the pool company is just trying to think up ways of not fixing it. I heard about the toilet plunger trick but can someone explain it in detail.
