When properly designed and installed, a swimming pool liner can fulfill its protective function for a decade or more. Over time, however, age, weather, and general wear can cause a swimming pool liner to lose its effectiveness. If you detect any of the following signs in or around your pool, may require a new swimming pool liner.

Cracks in the liner

A close visual inspection of your swimming pool is the best way to determine whether or not your swimming pool liner should be replaced. Keep an eye out for cracks and holes when inspecting your pool and swimming pool liner, which may be the source of wasteful and unnecessary leaking.

Algae and rust stains forming

During your visual inspection, you should also be on the lookout for algae and rust stains. These are signs that your swimming pool liner is no longer clean. If your pool liner is already a decade or so old, take this opportunity to have it replaced. Vinyl liners are popular today because they are durable, low-maintenance, and easy to keep clean.

Loose pump or skimmer fittings

The discovery of loose fittings in an older swimming pool liner is often an indicator that the time has arrived for you to replace your liner. This is because loose fittings in old liners cannot be easily repaired without causing damage to the liner.

Liner misaligned or sagging

When a swimming pool liner sags or falls out of alignment with the coping that helps hold it in place, the time has come for either liner repairs or a new liner. A liner repair expert can help you determine which course of action is best-suited to your swimming pool liner problems.
