When water gets behind the liner through seepage of ground water, over-filling or flood, the water pressure equalises on both sides of the liner and the liner can move. This is commonly called a “floating” liner.

What should I do before filling my pool?

Inspect your pool liner. This is a great time to check your pool shell or liner for any leaks that may be hard to spot later. Smooth out wrinkles. If your pool liner has any creases or wrinkles, you can smooth them out when there is just a couple inches of water in the pool. Once the pool is filled, wrinkles are there to stay. Reduce pressure.

Do you have to shift pool liner when refilling?

Can a pool liner be shut off at night?

It is the outside temperature and the amount of direct sunlight that allows the liner to stretch, not the temperature of the water. It is very true that if you are losing your sunlight for the day and your liner has more stretching to do it is ok to shut the water off for the night and restart the next day.

Can a pool liner be used while filling a pool?

The liner should become pliable in the direct sun and you might be able to hold the wrinkle out while the pool fills. You will have to make use of the weight of the water and the sunshine. The sun should make the liner workable and the water will eventually be heavy enough to hold the wrinkle out.

What happens if you fill your pool slow?

Slow filling your pool can damage your swimming pool liner. The exposure of sunlight on the swimming pool liner can cause the pool liner to shrink and could maybe void the manufacturer’s warranty (I would check the warranty on the liner).
