Beaded Liner Receivers
We recently bought a 15' x 24' x 52" oval above ground pool. It has a beaded liner and we have it almost completely installed. We also have a new liner.
When we put the bead receiver on the wall it comes about 1 1/" to 2" of meeting, it is to short. Will this be a problem for us?
The pool also came with the preformed pool cove for along the bottom of the wall and a cloth like blanket that was on the bottom of the pool, under the liner.
We can't remember how the previous owner had it. Do I put the 2" of sand first all along the bottom and then the blanket, then the coving on top of the blanket?
Any help would be a blessing.
I would redo the bead receiver and put a very small cap between each one of them. Even gaps of a quarter inch or less will not hurt a thing. Be sure and tape over each joint with duct tape. The tape will make the gaps all but disappear and also hold the receivers in place.
I would install the cove first held in place with duct tape. Tape the seams and around the top edge if it looks like it needs it. I would then use the pool pad covered with a couple of inches of sand. The sand will probably go at least half way up the cove but that's fine, just don't cover it completely. If you wanted the pad on top of the sand you could, but you will probably wind up with a lot more footprints that way.
