Vinyl liner pools are a great addition to any backyard, but like all investments, they require routine maintenance and upkeep. One of the things a vinyl liner pool will require over time is for the liner to be replaced. There are a handful of reasons why you may want to consider a vinyl liner replacement, some of which may be obvious while others may be less noticeable and could cost you a considerable amount in the long run if not addressed in a timely manner. Read on to learn more about why you may be in need of a vinyl liner replacement in the Tidewater Area. 

1. The Vinyl Liner Is Cracked and Torn

The most common reason for a vinyl liner replacement is that the liner has become cracked or torn. While some smaller cracks and tears may be repairable with an easy-to-use DIY repair kit available at your local pool store, larger cracks, and tears may require a complete vinyl liner replacement from the professionals.

2. The Vinyl Liner Is Stained and Faded

From the moment your vinyl liner is put in place, it will begin to naturally fade as it is exposed to UV rays on a daily basis, as well as exposure to the regular chemical usage necessary from routine maintenance. Over time, things like algae buildup, rust stains, and fading vinyl liner patterns may have a negative impact on the aesthetic appeal of your pool, leaving you wanting something new. A new vinyl liner can brighten up and refresh the appearance of your poolscape.

3. The Vinyl Liner Is Leaking or Seeping

If you are losing water on a regular basis, there is a good chance there’s an undetected tear in your vinyl liner. And in an effort to protect the walls of your pool and its foundation, it is critical that the liner be replaced without delay, or you may be facing costly repairs in the near future. 

4. The Vinyl Liner Is Stretched and Wrinkled

Vinyl liners lose their elasticity and plasticity over time. If you notice loose fittings around the pool’s skimmer and return jets, beading in the liner, or have “air pockets” around the liner, it is time for it to be replaced.

5. The Vinyl Liner Is Old

The vinyl lining of a swimming pool typically lasts 10 to 15 years, and that is if the pool has been regularly maintained and kept in pristine condition. If you have a vinyl liner that is nearing a decade or older, it may be time to consider a vinyl liner replacement to avoid any potential issues later on.
