Water behind liner

Postby kwilks » Fri 01 Apr, 2005 19:19

We just received 15" of rain in 24 hours and now our Liner has water behind it and it is wavy and rinkled. Is there anythin I can do?
It is still attached at the top all the way around.



Liner pool problem

I have found the only way to get the water out is to drain the pool and remove a section of the liner, replacing it after having dried out the base beneath the liner.

If someone has an easier and less costly method I would love to hear it.

I would like to know an easy way to do that too. THis has been happening for about a few years, but I'm not sure if it's actually water or air. About a year or two ago, we noticed a couple of wringles near or around the outflow jets. Some small places around the walls felt like the liner was pulling away from the wall, more like an air bubble. Also the corner area where the wall meets the pool bottom seems to have lifted up and feels squishy or like an air bubble. We simply ignored it since it was just a small issue. Now, after opening the pool, we now have noticed that these air/water pockets under the liner are in pool bottom too, not just the walls and edges.

I'm not even sure if they are air or water pockets. I'm just wondering if I can just drain and do it myself or get a pool pro do it.

Unhook liner in one spot and vacum water out with shop vac.Have someone in pool to try and move wrinkles as this is being done .Check pool for leaks and if there aren't any then the ground water level is high and will resolve problem when that drops.DO NOT pump pool down as there is a lot of pressure around outside of structure when the water table is high!This could be a recurring problem when the drainage around base of pool(if their is any) is not doing what it was put there for

Good one

Hi - Pool newbie here. I need to drain behind my inground pool liner (as described previously) but I can’t get the liner out of the track. Any helpful strategies?
