Default Pool Liner

Don't know if this is the wrong place to post this or not. If wrong a mod can slap me

I need someone that is/ has been a pool liner installer. I have an 18 x 36 pool preped an ready to install the liner. I also have the manpower to do the job but would really like to have a person with knowledge to direct the operation. If anyone knows where I can find such a personit would be appreciated. Besides the beer I will have some $$ to go along with this.

Thanks
Roger

I have watched mine get replaced twice.

A good vaccum cleaner is needed to suck the air from the sides while you fill it with water.

I have used Jerry Lee.

What was the cost? You must've had your pool drained and ready to receive the liner...

More info pls...I've been receiving catalogs for DYI and cost for liner is about $800.00....but with well points to consider, I would never attempt. Patched holes and hope to put off till later hopefully but considering all options...

If by p.m.'s only, I understand

What kind of liner are you getting for $800? Is this local or do you have to pay shipping?

I use Kera liners and a liner this size ranges from $1100 to $1500.

NEVER drain your pool, You should ALWAYS keep the pool half full.

Yes,

We had the pool ready for the liner. We drained and removed the old liner and patched the any bad spots. We also retaped all the seems. When the guy came he just pointed out a few places that needed touched up. He then put on all the new gaskets on the drain and steps, etc. We then swept the floor one more time to get up anything on the floor. Then we set the liner in the pool and put it in. It was a cake walk.

We bought the piner from the local pool place that did the original install. Paid about $150 more than what we could have gotten it for on line but figured that it was worth it to know that the measurments were right.

After we had the liner, we had second thoughts about doing it ourself. We checked every place in town andno one would just dojust the liner insall. On Thur about 3PM I got a call from this guy that use to do it for one of the pool companies and he said he could do it Fri at noon. When he showed up and whenI saw him I was not sureI had picked the right person. He looked to be everybit of sixteen years old. He is really twenty. I had some casual conversation about pools and in two mins I was sure he could dothe job. Later in the process I found out that last week he and his thirteen year sister had done the liner their parnts. pool.

He wanted $100. I gave him $200. There were at least a half dozen little tricks of the trade that he knew that never showed up on the dozen utube videos I had watched. It was well worth the extra $.
