How Long Does a Vinyl Liner Pool Last?
Pool liners don’t last forever. This is why it’s important to know when you need to replace them. Vinyl pool liners come with warranties, but this doesn’t mean that the average pool liner will last this long. Inground pool liners typically anywhere from six to 12 years, and above ground pool liners may last a little less. If you don’t care for your liner, it won’t last as long and will need to be replaced sooner and more frequently than you would like.
Keeping Water Chemistry Balanced
It’s important that you regularly monitor and maintain your pool water’s pH and alkalinity levels. The chemical balance affects how long your liner last. When the water is too acidic, it can degrade your liner faster. Also, if the pool water level gets too low, the liner can shrink, leading to tears in it. Monitoring water levels also allows you to see leaks and small holes in the liner.
Avoid Punctures and Holes
Thicker liners are more resistant to punctures. Cleaning your pool of debris not only makes your pool cleaner, but it keeps stones and sticks from ruining your liner.
Cover Your Pool
It’s a great idea to cover your pool when you’re not using it. A pool cover keeps your pool free of debris that might cause holes or punctures. It also protects the pool from sun exposure. Winterizing your pool is important and works well in prolonging the life of the pool.
