Pool Cover Under New Liner

We are putting in a new liner for an above ground pool and are contemplating if its a good idea to maybe re-purpose an old pool cover (tarp style) under the new liner for some extra protection against possible rock or twig, etc. We are in the woods. Can you foresee any problems with this idea?

Hi Maria

As long as you can keep the tarp smooth I see no problems with your idea. The biggest problem with using old liners, and such, under new liners is wrinkles. If the tarp will not lay perfectly flat I would not use it. Any wrinkles or folds will show up big time through the new liner. So if it lays flat, no problem.
