Your Most Important Decision

It is time to replace your inground swimming pool liner and you have come to the internet in search of information. We're glad you're here. You may be asking yourself, what is the most important issue to consider? Is it the price? Liner pattern? Length of warranty? Thickness of the inground vinyl liner material? Which pool liner brand to choose?

In reality, it is none of these. Instead, the most important decision is which swimming pool contractor you are going to hire to measure, install and stand behind the purchase of your new inground vinyl pool liner. If you hire someone who misses one measurement, you may spend the next seven years looking at wrinkles. If you let someone who is inexperienced install your pool liner, you may have wrinkles or a pool liner that will fail early on. If you buy from a website where you have to measure and send the order to them, you will have no advocate to make sure your warranty claim is treated fairly in the event there is a problem. It is your local swimming pool industry professional who lives and works in your community that will guarantee your satisfaction. Choose that swimming pool contractor wisely. Nothing else is more important.

The experts at Liner Specialist install more liners each year than any other single company in the midwest and quite possibly the entire USA. Our prices are very competitive and in most cases we have the lowest installed price.

Don't be fooled by manufacturer warranties that are 20 or 30 years as all manufacturers cover basically one thing. The seams! If the seams are going to fail they normally fail within the first season. If the liner fails anywhere but in a seam there is no manufacturer that will cover the replacement. That is why we only use manufacturers with a very low rate of defects.

What is the life expectancy of an in-ground vinyl liner?

The average life of a vinyl pool liner is seven years. Though some make it 10-12 years or longer, seven years is the expectation. If you live in a cooler climate where the pool is covered six months or more of the year, it may last twice as long as one in Texas or Florida that is exposed to the sun 12 months of the year.

You can extend the life of your liner by keeping the PH and chlorine levels in the proper ranges. However, after seven years of exposure to sunshine and chlorine, it will most likely be time for a new liner.
