Custom liner install

Postby minktrapper » Sat 25 Jul, 2009 18:22

Hi...I filled the deep end of my 16x32 pool with sand, let it settle for a month and had a custom liner made for my "new" all-one-depth pool. My problem is that the new liner seems to be too shallow and there is a substantial space between the liner and the base of the wall. I double checked my measurements against what I sent the liner company and all is good. My question before I call them is will the liner stretch into the base for a tight fit when I fill the pool? Or should I expect the liner to fit tight dry? Thanks in advance for any help...

All is good nothing to worry about. The liner is made Aprox 3% smaller than the pool. This is done so when the liner is reset you have no wrinkles. The weight of the water will pull the liner into place at the bottom of the wall panel.

One more tip for you. Don't leave the liner hanging in the pool without water for to long the liner will start to shrink in the sun then the liner will be to small.
