Let us show you the latest in vinyl liner choices!
The most durable pool liners are typically thicker gauge vinyl, with 25 gauge being a common choice. Liners with double-welded seams also tend to be more durable. Additionally, liners treated with UV inhibitors can resist damage from the sun’s rays and last longer.
Liner Color and Pattern Options How to Choose
In vinyl pools, the color of the liner is one piece that dictates the overall color of the water and the aesthetic of the entire pool area. Liner colors come in so many patterns and hues that range from light aqua to bright blue to modern and moody and everything in between. Even with the same liner, the color looks different depending on the amount of clouds or sunlight, the depth of the water, the surrounding environment, and the time of day. The best part about vinyl inground pool liners is that you have virtually an endless array of options in patterns, colors, shapes, and sizes. Beyond that, you’ll also have to factor in elements about your outdoor environment and pool usage. Let’s take a closer look at how you can make your pool match your life.
Vinyl Liner Swimming Pool Color
You may think that choosing a liner color is about personal taste, but there’s more to it. Dark liners can help absorb heat and warm up the water. They can also hide dirt and debris if you’re not keeping up with cleaning. But the darker the liner, the more likely it will be susceptible to bleaching by the sun and chlorine, and aging due to UV damage. Lighter liners may last longer because of less bleaching and UV damage. But you’ll have to stay on top of cleaning because dirt will show easily.
Vinyl Liner Swimming Pool Pattern
Liners will likely have two different patterns: a border pattern above the water and another below the water. Of course, you also have the option of choosing one solid color throughout. From tile, pebble, and slate patterns to wavy, swirling, or abstract designs, you can truly customize your look.
Vinyl Liner Swimming Pool Life Expectancy
A pool liner’s life expectancy is determined by how well you maintain your chemical balance, exposure to UV rays, freeze/thaw cycles, and whether you use a pool cover. Using a cover greatly reduces the amount of UV exposure vinyl inground pool liners receive. The location of your house and tree coverage can also affect the exposure. With appropriate care, most liners can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years.
Vinyl Liner Swimming Pool Thickness
When browsing pool liner options, thickness should also be a consideration. A thicker liner is more durable, puncture-resistant, and less likely to leak over time, however, it can be more difficult to install due to its rigidity.
