A few small wrinkles in a liner is very common. I install liners for a living, and it's pretty hard to get a liner in without a wrinkle or two. It's not going to effect how long the liner will last. If it is a big wrinkle (1" tall or more), you need to be careful that you don't tear it with the vacuum head.

Do you need padding under above ground pool?

You don't necessarily NEED padding under the pool, but it will protect the liner from chaffing and make it last longer. If you ever jump in and hit the bottom, you'll be much happier it's there.

Can you convert a inground pool with concrete bottom and polymer sides into a liner pooll?

I'm going to presume that it already had a liner in it once before.. there are only a few systems like you are describing. One is a stainless steel wall and concrete bottom (.claytonlambert), and the other is a (onlyevolution) composite (not polymer though) wall system that is painted with a painted concrete bottom. I think there is a company called Swimcrete as well.. but, either way, if you wanted to drop in a liner, you'd need to have some sort of coping or beadtrac around the top. If you could post a picture it would be helpful! The answer is "absolutely not"! The liner folks will be happy to sell you a liner, but it will not last 2 years. A hybrid pool lacks the required 'concrete receptor coping' installed in all vinyl liner pool installations. The required concrete receptor coping is extremely strong and contains what is known as a 'bead receptor'. All vinyl liners are manufactured with a 'bead' around the top of the liner. Obviously, at installation the bead is inserted into the bead receptor enabling the liner to support well over a hundred thousand (100,000) pounds of water. Even a small vinyl liner pool, 16x32, holds about 125,000 pounds of water. The vinyl liner salesmen, those without ethics, will nail a track into the top of the polymer wall, then screw the liner into the track. In other words, the 20mil liner with screw holes is expected to hold at least 125,000 pounds. As soon as the ground settles, even a little bit, the liner tears and you're out thousands of dollars. Better is resurface the walls with swimming pool gelcoat.

What is the purposed of great walls?

Taking into consideration that you are considering building a vinyl liner swimming pool I can tell you that: Steel panels do make a strong pool shell. It of course must be installed properly for your particular "ground conditions". It will last many years before you may have to change the liner due to damge from storms, accidents etc. that can damage the liner causing the need to replace it. When you replace it, you will find that your steel walls have built up corrosion and rust on them. This should be removed before replacing the new liner. The corrosion can be sanded off, then you need to paint the walls where they have been sanded (Rustoleum paint etc), re-tape the panel joints, clean the bottom from sanding debris etc. and drop the new liner. In case of severe rust where the panel is compromised, (thin, holes, etc) your pool company will probably need to replace the panel/brace/coping.) When you need to replace a liner in a polymer wall pool, you will need to retape the panel joints, clean the bottom if needed, drop the liner.

Do you really need a liner if you have an inground pool and it will be VERY expensive to replace or can you just leave it torn for a year or two?

If your pool was deisigned to have a liner then yes, you have to have a liner. These would be steel walled, aluminum walled ect type pools. a new liner can be installed with help of one to two people for around $1000.00 dollars for average sized pool say 12x36 foot. With care a liner should last about 7-10 years.

Is foam or sand better for the bottom of an above ground pool?

I have had my pool for 8 years. I lined it with Styrofoam and then used tuck tape (red stuff) on all the seams. It finally got a hole in the liner this winter. I talked to the pool place where I bought it and they mentioned that liners last approximately 5 years. I am happy I got 8. The only thing I have noticed for a couple of years now is that the Styrofoam had lost its consistency and I was starting to see the bottom ribs of the pool. With now having to replace the liner I will go with Styrofoam again. It lasted a long time.

Is it possible to have a fiberglass or vinyl liner installed over a concrete swimming pool?

Yes but its not recommended. You would have to replace the liner very soon. I have a customer who spent almost 60 grand on a pool were the liner was placed over concrete and now 4 years later she is spending almost 6 grand to replace the liner and redo the pool with vermiculite. Best bet is to refinish the pool with either gunite or vermiculite pool crete and then put in the liner. A liner can last ten to fifteen years before having to be replaced and then when it is replaced, it looks like a brand new pool.

How do you install an above ground pool?

To install an above ground pool you will have to level the ground where the pool will be placed. You should then add a layer of sand. You should lay out the bottom rails and connect them as shown in the directions next. Install the walls, uprights, and wall bars. The liner will be installed last.

Should you drain an above ground pool to clean it?

You should never completely drain an above ground pool. The chemicals in the vinyl liner that allow it to stretch when originally installed do not last. If you drain the water, the liner will shrink and when you refill the pool there is a good chance that instead of stretching back the liner will rip instead. NEVER drain your pool.
