Can you empty and then refill your dirty vinyl liner in-ground pool?

Emptying your vinyl Iiner in-ground pool is not advisable. If not performed properly, the vinyl Iiner can be ruined due to pressure from the water table. The liner can also lose its elasticity, become hard and brittle, and become damaged. Once a vinyl pool liner is damaged, it can result in thousands of dollars in repairs. In addition, most liner warranties are voided if the pool is emptied.
Usually, the only time to drain a vinyl Iiner in-ground pool completely is when the liner needs replacing. A pool may be partially drained (a third or half way) if the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) are too high or in a couple of other circumstances. It is advisable to let a professional inspect and drain your vinyl in-ground pool.
