Your pool liner will have to be replaced

Regardless of the mil-thickness of the vinyl, a pool liner will last an average of about 8-10 years before it has to be replaced. We’ve seen pool liners trashed in 3 years and we’ve seen them last 15 years or more. Proper water chemistry will help extend the life of the liner. So too will regular maintenance.

The warranty for replacement pool liners is virtually the same. Most liner manufacturers offer at or near a 20-year pro-rated warranty for seam separations. But the actual duration of the warranty period depends on the manufacturer. The liner will be made in sections and then seamed together to become your liner for your pool; this is based on our precise measurements. The warranty is stating that the seams will never fail, rip, or in any way come apart.

But, due to sunlight, chemicals, and daily use (known as wear-and-tear), most pool liners begin to lose pliability, elasticity, and overall strength in about 8-10 years, on average.

The liner:

The pool liners we install are built with precision cutting and seaming methods by state-of-the-art equipment. This ensures a perfect fit (due to our precise measurements). All pool liners are made from 100% virgin vinyl. They are UV protected. They are conditioned with various antibacterial agents to help prevent algae growth. And they are available in attractive patterns, designs, and color schemes.

While there is a modest up-charge, if you like the tile pattern of a certain liner but the wall/floor pattern of another liner, they can make that liner. The cost of this up-charge will depend on the manufacturer, the mix-and-match pattern you choose, and the size of your pool.

We do have 2019 brochures and sample packets for all of the pool liners that we install.
