At some point, all pool liners will need to be replaced, but did you know that there are several ways for you to help prolong your liner’s lifespan? Follow these tips to help your inground or above ground pool liner last!
1. Maintain proper water balance
Ensuring that your pool water is properly balanced results in a longer lasting liner. pH levels, a measurement of water’s acidity, should be properly maintained. If your pH levels are too low or too high, it can cause damage to your liner. Another important thing to pay attention to is your water’s alkalinity, which helps reduce pH fluctuations.

2. Monitor water line
Keeping an eye on your pool’s water line is one of the best ways to detect a leak as early as possible. The water line area is also particularly susceptible to fading, dirt and stains. Use a soft sponge (nothing abrasive) to wipe down the water line regularly.
3. Never drain completely
Unless you are replacing the liner, you should never completely drain a liner pool. Doing so may cause the liner to shrink, which can lead to wrinkles and tears.
4. Use equipment specifically designed for liner pools
While liners are made to be durable, it’s important to use equipment that is made specifically for liner pools. This includes brushes, vacuum heads, pool cleaners, etc.
