I have read your stories here and have bought a used pool. It was up and clean and holding water. I have replaced the rusty pieces that I was concerned with, the rest should be fine.
I am going to take your advice on just going ahead and putting a new liner in. Although before reading this I was going to try and get the used one back in. I just took the pool down so I know what a mess that can leave to change a liner.
Anyway I am going to change the liner. I have a 48 deep 24 round pool. The Top of the liner inserts in a plastic segment that hangs over the pool. Am I correct in ordering a beaded liner? NL900620 is the one I want to order from this site.
My next questions are the best way to fill the liner and Sand around the inside edge of the liner or the foam pieces that I took off. I was going to try and save them and spray adhesive on them and use the ones I can and buy the others I might need.
I have never put up a pool. I did level the ground removing the high and plan on setting my blocks all level today for the post and then I will put a layer of sand just enough to cover the bottom and fill any low spots.
Any answers to the many questions I have here would be appreciated.
Hi Carl. It sounds like the beaded liner you have picked out would be the correct one. If you feel the pre formed pool cove is usable I would try it. With a beaded liner you want a very small cove and the preformed stuff is perfect.
My only suggestion would be to make sure that any sand you use gets piled in the center of the pool and spread out only after the wall is up. It is very difficult to get the wall into the bottom track if you are working in sand.
