Above Ground Liner Rehang Hint

https://www.eastgatepools.com/tips/linerinstall.htm  BIG HINT:  If you have a sand base under the liner, make sure you compress the sand thoroughly on the coves.  If you don’t, you will get little pieces of sand roll up between the liner and the wall when the cove compacts from the weight of the water.  These pieces are then trapped, and when you vacuum the pool, the vac head brushes up against the liner and trapped sand. This  causes tiny pinholes that will ultimately lead to rust and wall failure.  Pack that sand.  The last step should be to wash down the inside wall.  Make sure to attach the spray nozzle so that you have a gentle stream of water, not a full blast that would wash the sand away.  –Max]]>
