How To Install An Above-Ground Pool Liner

  1. Drain and clean the pool, get all the debris and water out of the pool. When you get close to empty, you can use a shop-vac to get the last of it. You don’t want to have to clean and pick-through leaves and dirt that is mixed in with the sand under the liner.
  2. Next you want to remove the skimmer and the water return jet.
  3. Remove all your top rail caps.
  4. Now remove all your top rails.
  5. Don’t remove the grey or silver coping on top of the pool wall just yet.
  6. Cut and remove the pool liner. Cut it into manageable size sections.
  7. Remember, your pool walls are extremely vulnerable with the the water out of the pool. This should not be attempted on a very windy day.
  8. Once the liner has been removed, smooth the pool sand bottom, removing any sharp rocks or stones.
  9. Build a 4″ sand cove around the perimeter of the pool. Some sand is not compactable, so be sure to use mason sand.
  10. Lay the liner out in the sun to remove packing wrinkles.
  11. Begin removing the metal coping on the top of the pool, three sections at first. then hang the liner in that area, Once you have the liner hung in that area, put coping back on before moving on. Now work your way around, doing three or four section at a time hanging the liner as you go. Do not allow the liner to buckle or pull down the wall.
  12. Use a broom to tap liner close to the bottom of the pool wall.
  13. Tape off the skimmer opening on the outside of the pool. Now run a shop vacuum in the return jet hole. Seal around the vacuum hose. Tap liner into place while running the vacuum until the liner is set, and all the wrinkles are removed.
  14. Once all the wrinkles are out, you can start adding water, keep running vacuum until water is on the wall, all the way around.
  15. Begin installing the top rails.
  16. Once the vacuum is shut off, continue filling the pool until the water is 4 inches below the return jet.
  17. Remove the tape on the skimmer and install the skimmer with new gaskets.
  18. Install return jet with new gaskets, and then hook up the filter equipment, and finish filling the pool.

Price, Quality, Great Service and Install!!! We Could have never afforded an 18 x 33 oval of this quality and we looked in every local store all the way to Raleigh plus all the internet sites, pools of less quality with less product in the pool packages were 1500 to 2500 more. Thanks for all your help" Johnny Wilson NC
"Bought the Contempra and saved $1500 over Namco's price we love the pool and going into our third season with it. We got the Ozone and Mineral System we ordered and installed it in a snap just like you said, the pool is crystal clear without hardly any chemicals and the water feels incredible. Thank You I thought we were going to be stuck with the chlorine tabs forever because the pool is all steel but now we have the best of both worlds, the best looking and different above ground pool anywhere and the new system is as easy as a salt system. I highly recommend your pools, service and expertise to everyone looking for a great deal on a great pool and support they can count on" R. Marie Cornwall N.Y.

My Pool was installed two weeks ago and I made the mistake of going to the local pool store and having my water tested. They sold me all kinds of stuff and the pool still wasn't right, After our conversation on the phone and you having me use the test kit that came with the pool and you telling me to add alkalinity up then test again in an hour worked with just adding a little ph up after that. The Pool is water is clear, salt and chlorine levels are right on and I'm returning the unopened stuff from the pool store. Benson Nc
I wanted to thank you the Grand Bahama above ground was exactly the pool we needed. My kids are rowdy and the pool is built so solid it just takes all they give it. The 10 inch thick Resin frame is amazingly strong and the salt system makes it so easy and inexpensive to Take care of the pool. Tom Garner NC
