I'm entering the third summer as owner of an inground pool, and I'm still
learning how to maintain it!
Our liner currently has about 20 patches in it around the top where it's
tearing away. When we bought the house, we knew nothing about pools or the
need to replace liners - I wish we would have checked!
Anyway, it's clear that we need a new liner installed, and we want to do it
ASAP this spring. (Professionally done, not ourselves)
One problem - I took off the mesh cover today and discovered a rip in the
liner that is almost 3ft long, just right at the water level at the bottom
of the skimmer (I assume some water drained down to the level of the rip).
I was told that I need to have the pool clear in order for them to measure
for a new liner. Is that correct?
But in order to have the pool clear, I need to fix the rips to raise the
water level and pour chlorine in ($$$) just to have it pumped out to put in
the new liner.
So what really is the process? I'm going to call 3 places to get estimates -
what questions should I ask them?
Any hints from people who have had this done before?
