Can you put a new vinyl pool liner over an old one?

We do not recommend that you leave your old pool liner in your above ground swimming pool when replacing the liner. It may seem like an extra layer of protection, but in reality, it will create more problems for you. Installing a replacement pool liner also requires you to redo or re-groom the bottom of the pool base and add a liner pad before installation. All the more reason to just throw the old liner out and start fresh!

My pool liner replacement looks too small. Should I stretch the liner so that it fits in my pool?

You never want to physically stretch your new vinyl swimming pool liner. The main reason being that it will void the manufacturer’s warranty. Also, by stretching the pool liner into the pool, you are thinning out the vinyl material making the swimming pool liner more susceptible to damage.

    I got a new liner for my 21 ft pool. The one I got measured that it was for that size. I have installed it, but the overlap does not seem to be long enough. As the water level rises, the liner comes off. Do you have any advice? I don’t want to have to buy a whole new liner.
    Thank you for any help.
