Is your pool liner starting to fade? Typical vinyl liners for inground liner pools last anywhere from 10-15 years, depending on wear and tear. If your pool is properly maintained throughout the summer and properly closed during the winter, your pool liner may last even longer. However, if your liner is starting to look a little worse for wear, it may be time to replace your inground pool’s liner.
Here are some of the signs to look out for:
- Cracks or Tearing – If your pool liner has some cracks or tears throughout it, this is a clear sign that you need to replace your liner. These tears can lead to a leak and cause even more damage.
- Fading and Staining – If the design on your pool liner has faded or you notice rust stains or discoloration, it may be time to consider replacing your liner. Over time, your liner will fade naturally, but if your liner has lost all color, then it is time to replace it.
- Wrinkles or Stretching – If your liner starts to have wrinkles and folds throughout it, or it looks like it is being stretched throughout your pool, your pool liner is on its last legs. While wrinkles and stretching can be caused by many things, if your liner is suddenly full of wrinkles, you may want to replace it.
- Leaks – If you think your pool has a leak, pay attention to the height of the water. A pool without a leak will lose very little water throughout a day. However, a leak can drain anywhere from a few inches to gallons of water out of your pool.
