    How to Get Wrinkles Out of Vinyl Liners When Your Pool is FIlled

    By Greg
    There are many different things that can cause wrinkles in a vinyl liner.  Most wrinkles occur in the winter when the pool is closed and the water is lowered.  When the hole for your pool was originally dug, it was done with an over dig a few feet larger than the pool itself. When the pool is back filled, the dirt used will not be as compacted as the dirt around it. This causes the hole to hold water for awhile before its absorbed into the soil around it. When the ground water collects and rises above the level of the pool, it can cause the liner to "float". {See this article on dealing with floating liners}  Once the water is absorbed, the liner will go back down but not always snug to the surface as it was before therefore causing wrinkles. Another cause of wrinkles in a vinyl liner after your pool as filled is poor water chemistry. Low pH (particularly pair with a high chlorine level) causes vinyl liners to absorb the water therefore stretching the liner, which leads to wrinkles.

    How To Clean Your Salt Cell

    By Greg
    Salt systems are a great way to reduce chlorine usage and cost of tablets. Salt systems work by using electrolysis to convert ordinary salt into chlorine.

Once or twice a year you will need to remove the cell and give it a bath. Your cleaning solution should consist of 1 part muratic acid to 5 parts water. This is equivalent to about 15-20% acid. Always use extreme caution when working with acid. The steps you take are as follows:
