Installing a new liner cut in the main drains when water was knee high in deep end. Two vacuums running filling from hose. Pool filled successfully to about 3 inches from skimmer. No wrinkles in good shape. Next morning had a bad obvious leak. After draining pool back down found that the liner pulled away from the main drains. Now what. Any suggestions would be so greatly appreciated

I think about the only thing you could do is glue an underwater patch over the entire cut-out area, and then cut a new hole once the pool is re-filled and the liner fully stretched into place.

Not saying how to fix it but one of the problems installing a liner while the weather is still too cool is that it doesn't stretch easily and somewhere the liner wasn't all the way where it belongs so as it filled the weight of the water pulled it.
