You can use the same hole in the ground for both a vinyl liner pool and a gunite pool. You should not need a new hole dug.
If it was working ok before you lined it and you have no problems removing the liner you should have no problems.
Its a oval shape pool, 19,3'X43' size, 4' deep at one end, after 12' slopes down to 10' deep.
u can NOT convert one into another.... ud have to rip it out and start over... either gunite or fiberglass
Yes you can but you would be replacing the liner every 3-4 years when you can build a gunite pool using the old pool as a base and get another 30-40 years of enjoyment out of it.
Gunite is a type of cement mix used in the walls of the pool, whereas a vinyl lining is just a layer on the walls, generally used for waterproofing purposes. So, either of them will do, but my personal opinion is that using a lining is always better (hence vinyl lined pools are very common in England and other countries)
All day long. Concrete pools have real tile instead of the fake liner tile look. You can update a concrete pool later on as styles change: with vinyl it's final.
Both are fine. Due to the short season a vinyl liner pool will hold up for many years. The problem with a viyl liner pool is you have to stick to certain set sizes and designs. Small leaks can be patched, or eventually replaced with a new liner. A concrete or gunite pool will last for 25 - 30+ years. They can be constructed in custom designs.
Whats yer question?
Gunite is covered with plaster. It is sprayed on concrete sorta. They mix it in the hoses and it is blown on. You can go to youtube and see them gunite a pool. I am only aware of plaster, vinyl or painted pool surfaces. The vinyl is just like thin rubber.
Yes, this can be done however, basically the only thing you can use from your vinyl pool is the actual 'hole' and maybe equipment. The cost is not much less than having a new gunite pool built.
I say gunite for the ability to create any shape pool you desire. Otherwise, you are stuck with the pre-fab design of the vinyl variety.
A fiberglass pool is far superior to a vinyl liner pool. It is also about twice as expensive.
It would depend on what kind of an in-ground pool you refer to, i.e. gunite, concrete, block, vinyl liner, wood, or fiberglass.
Pool with a vinyl liner.
Big NO NO ! It will soften or destroy the vinyl
When you say a "pool liner" I am assuming you mean a vinyl liner as normally called a liner for short. If so then no, the liner cannot and should not be painted.
If you are talkin about a vinyl lined pool the answer is yes you can.
High concentrations of chlorine can and will destroy a vinyl liner.
I have a vinyl liner pool and I was wathcing the bottom being prepared. 1) The bottom needs to be very smooth my builder used a hand trowel to do this. My liner is 22 mil thick and I do feel little bumps her and there. If it is not trowled smooth it will be very rough on your feet. 2) The corners where the wall and bottom meet need to be rounded so that dirt won't settle in. 3)A cement product called vermiculite ( Im not sure of the spelling) should be used. This has an absortion material mixed with it that helps pull moisture away from the vinyl so that it doesn't get mildew underneath.I believe this is about 2 to 4 inches thick. If you are having a vinyl liner installed in the pool, then your pool is not being constructed properly. Asking "how do i know if a vinyl liner pool is being constructed properly" is like asking "how do i know if the straw house being built on sand is being constructed properly." A properly constructed pool needs no liner of any kind. Todd you need to study about the types of pools that are installed that is installed!!!! Putting in a vinyl lined pool has nothing to do with the pool being constructed properly, it is the type of pool by choice, obviosly you didn't read the answer from Tim. There are FIBERGLASS, GUNITE and VINYL lined pools, that is if you want to consider FIBERGLASS and GUNITE as a liner . I have a vinyl pool which incorporates steel walls with the bottom being vermiculite. Of course if you want a mud hole then you wouldn't put in a liner.
Yes there is no problem with using salt in a vinyl lined pool.
