What is the Best Material for Pool Liners?

A pool liner plays a very important part for your pool. It can prevent damage like cracks and leaks in the pool while also leaving a safer environment for swimming. As such a necessary pool accessory, you’ll want to be sure to choose the best material for your liner. While there are a few different options, our personal favorite at Backyard Paradise and Renovations is vinyl pool liners. Here are just a few of the reasons why.

  • Watertight: The main point of pool liners is to protect your pool against that constant water exposure, so it’s important that the material you choose is truly waterproof with no way to let water seep in. Vinyl liners have a top edge that will lock into the top of the walls of your pool along the deck, making it watertight. That way, no water can even seep in from behind the liner if your family likes to splash.
  • Low maintenance: Another reason why we love vinyl pool liners so much is because they are low maintenance in comparison to other liner options like concrete or plaster. With these other options, you’ll often need to reseal them, repair cracks, or do other repairs. Vinyl is durable, easy to clean, and longer lasting, so you won’t have to handle so much maintenance.
  • Smooth to the touch: No one wants a pool that is constantly scratching your arms and feet as you swim. Vinyl pool liners create a smoother surface for the walls and floor of the pool, so you’re less likely to endure any scratches if you hit the bottom or walls of the pool.

Vinyl is just one of the many options you have to choose from for pool liners. We are happy to help you choose the best liner for you. You can give us a call to learn more or discuss your options.
