Need A New Pool Liner Installed In Your Pool?
In-ground pool liners have grown in popularity do to their ease of maintenance and lower cost to build and renovate compared to an in-ground gunite swimming pool. The pool liners are made of vinyl and acts as the barrier between the water and the pool shell. The pool liners can last up to 25 years according to the manufacturers, but from our experience the average lifespan of pool liners is around 12-15 years if water chemistry is well maintained along with proper installation.
Pool Liners Selection
We supply you with vinyl liner samples from several quality manufactures that we use such as http://www.taramfg.com/. These pool liners are made from virgin vinyl and are of top quality. We do not purchase pool liners from manufacturers who add recycled materials into their vinyl as they are of lower quality.
The pool liner we order for you is a custom order.
We take all the needed measurements of the inside
of the pool to make sure if fits properly. Before we
order the new liner, this would be a good time to
make any repairs or changes to the pool, such as
lightning, deck repair or equipment upgrades.
Today pool liner manufacturers offer an exciting
line up of new colors and patterns as well as
different thicknesses (mils) for walls, pool steps,
and pool floors depending on your preferences.
Some manufactures now offer textured pool liners
as well as installation kits for real pool tile at the
water line or new pool builds.
Pool Liner Install Process
1. When the pool liner arrives we will drain the water out of the pool. If the water has chlorine in it we will dechlorinate the water before pumping, but most pools are usually green with
algae and no chlorine present.
2. The old pool liner is cut out in small strips and
folded to be hauled off
3. We then remove all the old face plates and gaskets
on the steps, skimmers, return lines, drains and pool
light. New gaskets are installed at this time.
4. Walls are cleaned and all wall seams are taped with
construction grade tape to create an air tight vacuum
when installing new liner. If walls have any damage
due to rust we prep the area and apply a rust inhibitive
primer and paint. Depending on the damage we can
install a piece of sheet metal over the damage as well.
5. Pool floor is cleaned of any debris. Unfortunately
many times we won’t know if there is damage to the
floor until the water and old liner are removed. We do
not charge for minor floor repair but if it is substantial
there would be an additional charge for making the repair. Sometimes this involves putting a whole new floor in.
6. Install wall foam on pool walls. Normally if the walls are smooth this is an unnecessary step. We install it for additional protection for the liner.
7. The pool liner is set in the pool and hooked into the top track and adjusted around the pool to get the correct fit. After the liner is installed we remove the air between the liner and the pool shell creating a vacuum to pull the wrinkles out. After the liner is vacuumed to the pool shell and everything fits well, the water is stared in the pool.
8. Main drain frames and covers are installed in pool bottom when at least 6 inches of water is in the hopper. All other fittings are usually installed after pool has at least 6-8 inches of water in the shallow end floor. Some experienced pool liner installers can install all the new face plates and covers the same day as the install. We have done both examples based on certain circumstances with the pool liner install.
9. Pool is filled with water and pool filtering process started. Chemicals are balanced
10. Trash picked up and hauled.
