When looking to purchase an above-ground pool liner, it’s important to know what to look out for and what exactly you’re getting yourself into. Since above-ground pool liners are usually sold as kits, you’ll want to make sure that you know what else comes with the kit and what other tools you might need before installation day arrives. This article will teach you everything you need to know about purchasing, installing and maintaining an above-ground pool liner so that your pool can be ready for swimmers by summertime! […].
Step 1: Choose Your Pool Liner
If you’re in the market for a new pool liner, it’s important to choose the right one. Above ground pool liners are typically made of either vinyl or polyester and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Vinyl liners are the most popular because they last longer and can be used with a salt water system. Polyester liners, on the other hand, offer better protection against extreme weather conditions such as wintertime cold snaps or summertime heat waves.
Step 2: Prepare the Pool
Preparing the pool for installation is the most important step in the process. To do this, you’ll need to fill it with water and let it sit for 24 hours. Remove any debris or plants from the bottom of the pool. Once these steps are complete, your liner should be able to fit snugly on top of your pool.
Step 3: Attach the Skimmer
One of the most important parts of the pool installation process is installing a bulkhead. This typically goes in the deep end of your pool, and it helps keep water from leaking out.
Step 4: Attach the Bulkhead
After assembling the liner and securing it to the top of the pool, we attached a bulkhead at one end of the pool. This will allow water from inside the pool to flow out through a hose. We then connected a garden hose to the other side of the bulkhead and placed that end on an elevated surface in order for water to have enough pressure.
Step 5: Lay Down the Bead (Pool Liner)
Lay the pool liner down on top of the bead and work it into all of the crevices. This will help it seal better with the bead.
Step 6: Connect the Pump
Once you have the liner in place, you will need to connect the pump. The best way is to use a garden hose which can be connected to your home’s water supply.
Step 7. Add Water, Wait For 24 Hours, Enjoy!
Once you’ve installed the new liner, it’s time to fill your pool with water. Make sure that there are no gaps or tears in the liner before filling. Once the water is added, leave the pool for 24 hours before using it again.
