Our liner is uneven we have water in it about ankle deep. One side is pulling the wall the other side the liner is about to fall in.
How can I fix this PLEASE!!!
Ps I can't upload on my iPhone.
Thanks for the question Nikki
If this is what I think it is, and it probably is, this situation is better left to a vinyl professional.
There's water already in the pool so you can begin by pulling up to get some slack in the liner. The liner is then clipped back in the track using a product called liner lock.
Leave a small opening on the bottom where the water can drain, then clip the last section back in. If you do not have liner lock in the coping it will pull out from the wall by breaking the seal.
If the liner is too stiff or won't stretch enough, you can use hot, not boiling water, on the liner to help with the stretching. A heat gun or hair dryer can be used to heat the liner but be careful that you don't burn through it. You're also using an electrical device around water so take mind of that. You also run the risk of over stretching or melting the liner.
This is exhausting work and can be very frustrating because you're dealing with a massive piece of vinyl and trying to get every inch back into the track and using a liner lock.
Again, if you're at all hesitant about tackling this, I'd encourage you to try to get an above ground pool installer or vinyl installer that knows what to do.

I'm looking for a used swimming pool liner -- you'll never guess what for. It's to put in an aboveground chicken coop, so I can put sand in the coop floor.
I don't care if the liner is ugly, and I don't care if it has a few leaks.
But I do need for it to be inexpensive.
I need around 12 feet x 12 feet min.
Can you offer any advice? Do you have any such items?
Thanks for the question Skye
Sorry but I don't sell new or used vinyl liners. Have you tried a local pool store?
Other people that I've known have put in an order for a used vinyl pool liner.
Not for the same reason as yours, but nonetheless.
When the liner installers go out to install a new liner they need to get rid of the old one and might be willing to sell it to you, or even give it away for free because they have to pay to dispose of the old liner.
I would encourage you to call around to local pool companies or those that install vinyl liners and tell them your situation.
I'm sure they'd be more than willing to help you if they can cut down on their labor and disposal fees.
You can even say you'll take it away from the site at no charge to them.
Tell them you'll do it for free. Companies love free labor.
Hope this helps and good luck with your chickens. That's the first time I've ever said that on my site.
