Are you looking to replace your Pentair 78887700 3/4-Inch Hub Vinyl Liner Mounting Bracket? If so, you’re in luck. Replacing this common pool bracket is a fairly straightforward task and can be done with minimal tools and supplies.

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • A new Pentair 78887700 3/4-Inch Hub Vinyl Liner Mounting Bracket
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Flathead screwdriver
  • Pliers
  • Hammer
  • Level
  • Marker
  • Wooden shims (optional)

Now that you have your supplies, it’s time to get started.

Step 1: Remove the Old Bracket

Begin by turning off the power to the pool pump and any other equipment attached to the pool. This will help prevent any electrical shocks or damage. Next, use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws that are holding the old bracket in place. Once the screws are removed, use a flathead screwdriver to pry the bracket away from the wall. You may need to use a hammer and pliers to loosen the bracket if it is stuck.

Step 2: Install the New Bracket

Once the old bracket is removed, it’s time to install the new one. Line up the holes on the new bracket with the holes on the wall and insert the screws. Use a level to make sure the bracket is properly aligned before tightening the screws.

Step 3: Secure the Vinyl Liner

The last step is to secure the vinyl liner to the bracket. This can be done with either plastic anchors or wooden shims. Begin by marking where the holes in the bracket should be drilled. Then, use a drill to create the holes. If you’re using plastic anchors, insert them into the holes and then secure the liner with screws. If you’re using wooden shims, insert them into the holes, followed by the vinyl liner, and then secure with screws.

And that’s it – you’ve successfully replaced your Pentair 78887700 3/4-Inch Hub Vinyl Liner Mounting Bracket. Now you’re ready to get back to enjoying your pool!
