New Liner Install Problem
I hired a local above ground pool outfit to install a new liner in my 18x38' long oval Secard pool. The old liner had a leak in a seam so went ahead and paid the money for a new liner and a crew to install it. Now it's NYE and I see that one of the buttresses has slid underground and/or lifted up enough to have the strap under the sand under the liner IN the pool coming up.
What to do? Not sure if the contractor will want to come out and fix this or not since it took forever for him to come out to do the liner in the first place.
I haven't taken pictures yet. Will do that in the morning in the sunlight. So far the liner doesn't look like it's ruptured or leaking but the strapping is showing through the liner on the bottom.
Any time you can see metal under a pool liner it could be a problem. If it gets bumped by any cleaning item it could start a hole. If the metal is sharp it could make a hole on it's own. I would make sure this gets taken care of.
I don't know how just changing the liner would have caused this but if the installer knew there was not enough sand to effectively cover the straps he should have said something.
