Installing Vogue Pool Liner
I have a Vogue Impact 18'X52" pool which requires the J-Hook liner. I had to replace the liner, so I went to the store where I purchased the pool and bought a new liner, which was called a unibead.
I re-leveled the ground, installed new cove and started filling the pool with water, not even full yet, about 4" from the return fitting.
The liner pulled from the top wall rail. I turned the water off and shortly there after the liner pulled away so much from the rails that the water busted out like a river. Any suggestions as to why this may have happened?
Hi. There are a couple of reasons for this happening. It is very possible it just needed more sunshine to allow the liner to stretch just a little. If the liner was not quite touching the wall at the base, and there was no sunshine on the liner, and if it was cold, the liner is not going to stretch, not even a little. Installing it again at midday in full sun might make all the difference in the world.
Another common problem is not having the liner centered perfectly. This causes slack on one side and tightness on the other. The bottom seam needs to be in the exact same spot on the cove all the way around.
Installing your Vogue pool liner using the instructions on the beaded liner installation page might help also. Using the vacuum to pull the wall into place helps with the stretching process.
