Care of Vinyl Liners
Liners can last a very long time or can quickly need replacement…
Some of the items that effect liners are:
Chlorine Level; the chlorine should be maintained between 1 to 5 ppm. Higher levels of chlorine will start to bleach your liners print prematurely.
pH Level; your liner is very sensitive to acidic water, a low pH will make the liner grow. If acid is concentrated in one area there is a possibility of wrinkling occurring due to this growth process.
Heat; backyard vinyl liner pools are sensitive to heat. Heat will pull the plasticisers out of the vinyl prematurely aging it. This is usually seen at the waterline on corners exposed to a lot of sunlight.
Wrinkles occur for many reasons, original poor installation, tree roots, high ground water, and as mentioned above low pH.
Liner stretching can occur from a poor original measurement/installation and from ground water moving the liner and it not going back into place.
Punctures are not terribly common in liner pools. They can be reduced by having a wrinkle free pool with the liner against a firm surface. It is easier to puncture a liner with a soft background such as foam.
