I have a vinyl liner pool and I was wathcing the bottom being prepared. 1) The bottom needs to be very smooth my builder used a hand trowel to do this. My liner is 22 mil thick and I do feel little bumps her and there. If it is not trowled smooth it will be very rough on your feet. 2) The corners where the wall and bottom meet need to be rounded so that dirt won't settle in. 3)A cement product called vermiculite ( Im not sure of the spelling) should be used. This has an absortion material mixed with it that helps pull moisture away from the vinyl so that it doesn't get mildew underneath.I believe this is about 2 to 4 inches thick.

If you are having a vinyl liner installed in the pool, then your pool is not being constructed properly.

Asking "how do i know if a vinyl liner pool is being constructed properly" is like asking "how do i know if the straw house being built on sand is being constructed properly."

A properly constructed pool needs no liner of any kind.

Todd you need to study about the types of pools that are installed that is installed!!!! Putting in a vinyl lined pool has nothing to do with the pool being constructed properly, it is the type of pool by choice, obviosly you didn't read the answer from Tim. There are FIBERGLASS, GUNITE and VINYL lined pools, that is if you want to consider FIBERGLASS and GUNITE as a liner . I have a vinyl pool which incorporates steel walls with the bottom being vermiculite. Of course if you want a mud hole then you wouldn't put in a liner.

Can you withhold payment if you fire the contractor?

That completely depends on the contract you signed with them. First you need to determine if you have the legal right to terminate the contractor as per the contract. Generally one of the three conditions have to be met: the contractor is court ordered into bankruptcy, makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors due to contractors insolvency, or a court appoints a receiver to the contractor Secondly, the contractor is entitled to receive funds for the work he has reasonably completed to date. I would get advise from a lawyer before the contractor slaps a lien on the property and before you know it there is a legal demand before the courts to have your house sold to pay the unpaid invoice

Can you hold back money if a subcontractor doesnt have insurance?

If the contractor has already finished the work you can not legally hold back his money. What on earth would you be holding it for anyway? Most states in the U.S do not require a contractor to be insured so you would have no legal grounds and are subject to suit by the contractor. If your upset that he didn't have insurance, You were supposed to check that before you hired the contractor in the first place. Holding the contractors money after the job is completed just looks like your trying to cheat the contractor out of his pay. If the contractor wants to, he can sue you and or place a lien on your house if you fail to pay.
