Call us for Pool Liner Replacement in and around the Atlanta Area and Southside Atlanta
When you have a pool, and your liner has a hole or two in it, what can you do? Some people think that their pool is no good anymore and you may feel that you should be disposed of it. Truthfully, you can get a pool liner replacement for a great price, have it installed, and then you will be able to use your pool once again. Both in-ground pools and above-ground pools can have liners, and keeping those liners pristine is how you keep your pool clear and full of water.
Does Your Pool Liner Need Replacement?
Is your pool liner torn, or does it have some holes in it? When you notice that your pool is leaking, it is time to do something about it. Once you see that the water level continues to drop, you should repair or replace your pool liner even if you are refilling the pool. If you do not do that, you will spend a lot of money on the water during the season, continually filling your pool to get the water back up to the level that it should be.
If the water drops too low, you risk burning out your filter system pump because it will be trying to suck water through, and the water is not there. As this continues, the pump will overheat, and eventually, it will burn out, which will leave you with a further, more expensive problem. Dealing with your pool liner in a timely way is very important for all of the reasons mentioned here. When you notice a minor issue and take care of it before it becomes a larger one, you can save yourself a lot of money.
Consider Having your Liner Patched or Repaired
If the damage to your pool liner is minimal, you might consider having it patched or repaired to save money. The cost to have this done professionally is much less than having to replace the entire liner for your pool. If you have thought that your pool liner needs repairs, you can call us, we are experienced with the type of repairs you need, and we guarantee our work. We have done many repair jobs in the past for a lot of satisfied customers.
What Causes Damage to a Pool Liner?
If your pool liner has cracks or rips, this is an obvious sign that it needs to be replaced. The sun’s UV radiation combined with the chemicals that are added to the water can cause the liner to become brittle, which causes cracks and tears near the waterline. Once you see this, it will be time for a liner replacement very soon. Small leaks do not require immediate attention but can be patched or easily repaired.
Is Your Liner Faded or Stained?
UV and chemical damage can also cause fading. Modern pool liners are designed to resist UV fading, but this does not mean that they will never fade. Over time the color on the liner’s finish will start fading, and the plastic materials that make the liner pliable will break down. Once you notice that the liner is very faded, it is time to examine it for rips and cracks and see if you can find any leaks.
Pool Liners can stretch after installation, and this creates wrinkles in your liner which can pull it out of the track that it sits in around the top of your pool. If you see the liner slipping out of the coping around the pool, then you can try to set it back in. It is easier to do this when the liner is warm and pliable, but if you cannot get the liner back into the edge and keeps popping out, you will probably need to replace the liner.
When Should you Replace Your Pool Liner?
The best time for the replacement of your pool liner is in the fall or spring. If you plan to have the liner replaced in the spring, consider a call early in the season because most businesses that replace liners are already booked up and might not get to your pool until summer. You do not want to miss out on a season of pool use, so make sure you have your pool liner replacement lined up ahead of time.
Most pool liners have a life of between 10 and 15 years if they are reasonably good quality. There are a few factors that can affect the life of your pool liner, including:
- The liner fit – if it is not a custom fit for the dimensions of your pool, it will not last nearly as long. If you have to stretch the liner to make it fit, you will have weak points in your liner, and you will lower its lifespan.
- Water that is not balanced. If your water is out of balance, it will reduce your pool liner’s life. Low pH and alkalinity will stretch your liner, and wrinkles will form. Low calcium hardness can make your pool liner brittle.
- Groundwater issues such as high groundwater levels cause water to collect under your pool liner, and this will cause it to “float.” When the groundwater recedes, it can stretch the liner or cause it to pop out of the coping.
