Laying out the Replacement Liner

We have a pool that is up. We need to replace the liner, how do we lay out the new liner?

Thank you, Tina



Hi Tina. I would do it like the illustrations on these pages. They show a pool liner being stretched into a pool over the pool framework. This is how I would normally install an overlap vinyl liner into an above ground pool.

A beaded liner would need to be placed inside the pool and opened up. This page might help with that.

Here are a few other pages that might help with your vinyl liner installation.

This is the beginning of a liner installation. The liner is fist opened up wide to soak up some sun shine. Then it is folded into the shape in the photo. This is what the two of us lift into the pool and begin stretching it over the top rails.

Smoothing Pool Base Before Liner Replacement

We are having to replace our pool liner due to the sand moving and getting divets under the liner causing the liner to get holes in it. What can we use to keep the sand from moving after we smooth it out?



Hi Desari.

smoothing the pool base
Most of the time the second liner will stay much smoother than the first. The sand will have had a chance to pack down under the weight of all the water. I would smooth it out with a push broom and then install the liner from outside the pool, therefore not creating footprints as you are installing it. Our liner installation pages show this method of installation.
