Q – Why do I have grass growing through the bottom of the liner and is this covered under warranty?
A – This is not covered under warranty. The earth underneath the pool liner was not properly taken care of
before installation, thus causing sharp blades of grass to grow beneath the liner surface and poke through.
Weed killer can be used but must be checked to make sure that it will not affect the liner in any way

Q - Why doesn’t my liner fit?
A - To determine why your liner is too small or doesn't t properly, review the following:
(a) Is it too cold. Vinyl will shrink and stiffen when the temperature is below 65 degrees. The sun will soften
the vinyl making it easier to pack folds and wrinkles.
(b) Your pool is out of round.
(c) There should be two inches of sand or Styrofoam under the pool liner with an eight inch cove along the
inside of the pool wall. Do not use coarse sand.
(d) The pool may not be level.
(e) The liner may have been installed unevenly. Verify that the bottom seam of the liner is centered in the
pool. The liner may be pulled to one side.
