The remnants of Fay have dumped over 6 inches of rain in our area within 24 hours. The weather people say the worst is over, however, there could be scattered intermittent downpours (40% probable) over the next 24 hours.
As a result of this rain several areas (spots) of my liner (2 years old, 24K Gals water, steel sides, pool cement bottom)) are floating; deep & shallow on the sides, and also a little on the bottom on the shallow end.
After doing numerous web searches on the web including this forum I appear to have the following options to prevent wrinkling with the understanding that water has gotten behind the liner:
1. Wait - the liner will correct itself. This sounds risky, is this true?
2. Use brush or squeegee to push the liner back. I maybe able to do this in some spots, however, when I try a few spots the liner floats again at that spot after a couple of minutes. Perhaps I should wait a while when the water table recedes a little and try again.
3. Remove liner from the track near the where the liner is floating, insert a small hose that's connected to a pump, and pump the water out & push the liner back properly with a brush or squeegee. Sounds reasonable but how hard is it to get the liner back again? Will this work?
Any recommendations or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
I have a call into the pool person who installed my pool & liner but apparently he has many calls from others regarding this same problem.
