Had my liner replaced this week. Halfway filled and I see two places with something under liner. The worst is in the deep end. I swam down and it is really sharp! Contractor said drain the pool and he will remove on Monday. So...is this a good idea? Several years ago I had a guy go under my old liner and do a wall repair and that liner was never the same again. I’m worried to say the least.

@kimkats, do they go digging, or do they cut and patch the liner?

36, seems like you have no choice. If he's a standup guy, he'll make it right, one way or another.

They will take the liner off in that area ONLY and find a way to get to what ever that is. Hopefully they will not have to put their whole body down there as that can mess up the smooth bottom due to feet prints and such.

One week later and pool has been emptied, pool guy went under and retrieved the scrap and pool is now full. All is well and the liner looks wonderful! I attached a before and after shot of my liner.

I haven’t heard yet. I went down and checked befor and after I drained. It felt like a bracket of some kind but not sure. I know I felt a sheet metal screw after I drained it. I wasn’t able to be there when he did it and haven’t talked to him since. I’ll post when I find out for sure.
