Signs That You Need to Replace a Vinyl Pool Liner
If your pool’s liner is looking weathered, chances are it may need repair or even replacement. A vinyl liner should last up to 15 years. However, certain factors may influence its durability. If you’re living in an area that is susceptible to groundwater problems, this could reduce your liner’s life. Another factor which could contribute is an incorrect pool pH balance. If you have suspicions about your vinyl pool liner’s durability, why not do a little investigation? Two main areas need your perusal:
- Are there tears and cracks?
Cracking or tears can be symptomatic of bigger problems, such as water leakage. They are mainly caused by exposure to pool chemicals and the sun’s UV rays.
- Are there wrinkling, slipping and/or stretching?
Over time, vinyl liners will lose some of their plasticity and elasticity. If your liner beads in several areas, or slips out of the track, it is clearly stretching too much. Another aspect you should investigate is loose fittings around your pool’s return jets and skimmer.
In the event you find something amiss, it is best to get a professional opinion by calling on the help of vinyl pool liner replacement contractors.
An experienced contractor will be able to judge whether your swimming pool needs a vinyl liner replacement, or whether the vinyl liner is repairable. Certain leaks can be patched, depending on the age/elasticity of the vinyl liner. Be it as it may, it is best to act as quickly as possible to nip problems in the bud.
