If you own a vinyl liner pool, you will have to replace the liner over the life of the pool. Vinyl liners typically last 8-15 years depending on the pool. To get the most out of your liner, we recommend keeping the pool water at 80 degrees or lower, keeping your water balanced and keeping sharp objects (like pet paws) out of the pool. Some pool owners choose to replace their liners before the 8-15 year window solely based on aesthetic purposes – the color faded or they just don’t like the pattern anymore.
When your pool liner is replaced, is a good time to pressure test all the lines and make any repairs to them or the pool bottom or walls. This includes re-troweling the sand bottom or installing new vermiculite. These repairs could cause additional charges to the original quote, but it’s easier to make them when the pool is empty, before the new liner goes in than when the pool is full of water in the middle of the summer.
Our liner replacement quotes usually include pumping water out of the pool, removing the old liner, pressure testing the plumbing lines, new gaskets and faceplates, installing the new liner, water to refill the pool and starter chemicals. This ranges from $4,000-$8,000 depending on the size of the pool, it’s location and what features it has (i.e. in-floor cleaning system, multiple lights, etc.). If you’re getting multiple quotes, make sure you get itemized quotes of what all is included so you can compare apples to apples.
