When Do You Need To Replace Your Pool Liner?
When it comes to pool liner replacement, homeowners typically ask us how often a liner needs to be replaced. In reality, it will be completely dependent on how often you use your pool, how well you balance your pool chemicals, the amount of sunlight on your pool, how often you cover your pool, and a variety of other factors. Because of this, a pool liner can last anywhere between five and 15 years. Below, we have listed a few of the telltale signs that it is time to consider replacing your pool liners.
Fading – One of the best ways to tell that it is time to replace your pool liner is that the colors and designs of the liner have begun to fade. While newer pool liners may be made using UV inhibitors and other fade-resistant compounds, it is inevitable that your liner will someday begin to fade because of prolonged light and chemical exposure.
Wrinkles – There are three main reasons that liners will have wrinkles. When a pool liner is first installed, it could be installed improperly leaving wrinkles. Another reason that a liner could have wrinkles is that the pool liner floated, this happens when the hydrostatic pressure of the ground water is greater than the hydrostatic pressure in the pool. For some pools this happens often, for other pools this will only occur during a major storm, such as hurricane Sandy. Finally wrinkles can form due to chemical damage, these wrinkles will form overtime and will be in an area of the liner that has significant fading. Wrinkles due to installation and wrinkles due to a floating liner are both repairable if the liner is “New,” unfortunately wrinkles due to chemical damage are not repairable, and they are a sign of other soon coming problems.
Cracking & Tearing – While we mentioned above that it is not uncommon for a liner to fade, and wrinkle due to prolonged exposure to light and chemicals. This exposure can also do quite a bit of physical damage to your pool liner. While the cracks and tears might be too small to see at first, it will eventually become an issue as water is slowly lost.
Water Loss – One of the most obvious signs that your pool liner needs replacement is that your pool is losing water at unprecedented rates. While it is normal for any pool to lose water because of evaporation, quick water loss is a telltale sign of a leak — likely caused by an unaddressed crack or hole in the liner.
Should You Repair It or Replace It?
As a homeowner, you’ll always weigh your options when your property is damaged. Is it something that can be repaired? Or is it something that needs to be replaced? With pool liners, this thought process is no different.
Pool liner repair is certainly possible, but it takes a perfect storm of a situation to be effective. First, your liner must be relatively new — otherwise, there is no reason you shouldn’t consider repairing it. Second, the damages must be located in an area of the liner that has a high rate of repair success. Most often, when a liner is damaged near the bead and cutouts, or any plastic fittings, the success rate of repair drastically goes down.
Replacing your damaged pool liner gives you a much better chance that the issues will be fixed, and it adds aesthetic value to your home while doing so. If you suspect that your pool liner is damaged in any way and are questioning whether or not you should repair it or replace it, we urge you to contact us to speak with one of our pool liner professionals.
