Swimming Pool Vinyl Liner Repair & Replacement
Backyard Living specializes in the repair and renovation of existing vinyl liner pools. If your vinyl liner is in need of repair, or your pools structure, coping or deck is crumbling give us a call at 615-444-9000.
A vinyl liner pool has a custom made sheet of vinyl between the water and the pool structure. This is in contrast to a gunite or shotcrete pool which uses plaster as its waterproofing membrane. Vinyl liners typically lock their top edge, called a bead, into a track located on the bottom of the coping, which is at deck level.
Liner bead coming out of the track?
Liners are meant to fit tightly into the shape of the pool. If the liner was installed slightly off center, or if the liner is too large or too small for the pool's shape, you might experience the bead popping out of the track.
With the use of a heat gun or blow dryer and a lot of elbow grease by our team, the liner can be stretched and locked back into the track.
Liner losing its color?
The original color of your liner will fade with the use of sanitizing chemicals and the effects of Sun. Harsh chemicals and high concentrations of such are to be avoided. This will remove the plasticizers which give liners their resiliency, leading to brittle vinyl, which leads to new liners. If you are one of our weekly maintenance costumers, we balance chemical treatment to extend the life expectancy of your liner.
Vinyl liner leaking?
Not an uncommon problem. Liners are typically manufactured in 20 mil thickness (28-30 mil option). Although resistant to punctures...it can happen, and will happen. Especially as the liner ages, losing its resiliency. If you are fortunate enough to see a small hole in the liner, simply patch it with a vinyl liner patch kit. If underwater, buy a "wet" patch kit. If the source of the leak isn't readily apparent, please give us a call, before very serious damage occurs to your pool.
Vinyl liner replacement
Vinyl liners are not limited in colors and patterns as they used to be. Changing pool liner will dramatically improve the visual effect of your pool and resale value of your home. The cost of the liner will depend on it's shape, size, thickness, and pattern choice. Give us a call for a free estimate!
