Will my vinyl liner tear due to wrinkles??

Hello All,

I have drained my above ground pool and have started to fill it up again using my garden hose. I have lots of wrinkles on the floor as can be seen by attached pics. Some are about 1 or maybe up to 2 inches tall. The liner is as old as the pool - roughly 8 or 9 years old.

Even though I have read that wrinkles don't cause major problems, I have tried very hard as I'm filling up the pool to remove these wrinkles, and I've had very limited success. As you can see from the pics in the photo album (see link below), due to the wrinkles the floor does not extend entirely to the very edge of the pool and the walls are not 100% vertical.

Tomorrow I'm scheduled to get a delivery of about 7k gallons of water to quickly help me fill it up and try to get some use out of it before the summer is over.

Question:
    Will getting a water truck to fill up the pool likely tear the liner or cause it to come off completely because the forces are not being applied in the way it was designed?

I'm wondering if I should call off the water truck, empty out the pool again, and start all over.At this point my main concern is structural, not aesthetic.

Thanks,
JPG.

Answer: it didn't, but the walls did start start to buckle, so had to stop.
