What would cause a liner to rip at the seam. We installed a new liner in our pool on March 16 of this year and filled it. It was doing great and then we wake up this morning and noticed we had lost a significant amount of water. We started looking around the pool and found a tear at the seam about the size of a nickel. We have not had any one swimming in it and it has been fine for four weeks. I plan on calling the company tomorrow since it has a warranty but what does that warranty usually cover and why would it all if a sudden pull like that. We bought some water weld and have patched it for now.

I had the exact same issue 5 years ago when I installed mine. Within a couple weeks I had one seam along the edge that separated. The company sent me a new liner and said there must have been an issue with their machine that sets the seams. I ended up patching mine though and never replaced it and it has been fine since.

Looks very similar to mine ... if you wouldnt mind could you private message me the maker of your liner? Curious if it is the same. They handled it very well though. You could put a patch on that easily to prevent losing more water til you decide what to do next. Personally I had liner material left from where I cut the steps out, used that for the patch material and you cannot see it unless you really are looking for it.

Thank you for the advice! We already patched the pool and it is holding so we are just going to hang on to the new liner until we need it
