Good question. We used a shovel and a laser transit when setting our stones as well as a ring that is about 1 foot wide. We initially eyeballed the inside of the pool. The area that the ring sits on as well as the supports are the most important to get right. Think about it, it's what is supporting the liner and would need to be most level. With the inside of the pool, it needs to be level, but it does not have to be dead level like the '1 foot ring'. We are shooting for within an inch for the middle. We'd like it to be level for 'foot feel' and no deep areas.How well does that tiller work? My fear of using one was that it would be hard to control the accuracy and would wind up cutting down too far. I'm mostly within an inch with my dig so it may be to late for me to use one.
YES! It was a J-hook liner and it was super tight. So tight that the Shop Vac was doing very little to pull in the liner. But we worked it until no bottom wrinkles only a few in the sides, but then with about 6 inches of water, the side wrinkles went away.SWEET! You are going to LOVE the bottom with those pads. I tried to talk my hubby into that but it was a no go
How *fun* was the liner to install?? Many adult words followed by cold beers?
