A concrete pool is better any where if it is done professionally.
NO NO !! You must remove the vinyl completely and then check what substrate you have. Concrete plaster or brick will be fine.
A concrete pool is better just about any where unless there is a lot of ground movement.
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.
There are three important construction methods for a swimming pool: concrete, vinyl liner and fiberglass. The most used construnction method for a swimming pool is concrete.
Be more specific please- what about removing it? cost? difficulty? What type of pool is it? fiberglass? vinyl liner? concrete?
Not all pools have pool liners, some are simply painted concrete. Depends upon your type of pool. If you are concerned with longivity, then consider a thicker vinyl.
Concrete retains heat better and it a more permanent solution. Vinyl is often like a bladder to hold the water within a tin frame. The layers are so thin that heat retention is negligible and therefore not an optimal solution for a heated pool.
What type of surface is it? Concrete, Vinyl or fiberglass? If you have a vinyl or fiberglass pool and it is rough it is probably calcium that has precipitated out of the water you will need to have your pool water analyzed by a professional swimming pool company. If your pool is concrete it could be calcium also or it could be an etching of the concrete both are related to water chemistry and the same professional analysis would need to be performed to resolve the issue.
Well first of all there is no such thing as a fiberglass pool. You can have fiberglass walls instead of steel but your pool is still vinyl because you need a liner. These are the usual combinations of inground pools. Sand floor, steel walls, vinyl liner Sand floor, fiberglass walls, vinyl liner Vermiculite floor, steel walls, vinyl liner Vermiculite floor, fiberglass walls, vinyl liner Concrete floor, steel walls, vinyl liner Concrete floor, fiberglass walls, vinyl liner Concrete floor, concrete walls, no liner Concrete pools have to be painted with epoxy paint or if you want tile installed then usually you plaster over the concrete. Now a days 3 and 4 are the most common inground installs. 1 and 2 are usually pools that are 30 + years old although you can still have them done that way. In South Alabama the cost of a 20 *40 vinyl pool will cost around 18 to 22 thousand
To fix a detached vinyl liner from its spot on an above ground pool, the water will have to be drained from the pool. Then, a marine patch can be placed on the area to re-attach the vinyl to the place where it came apart. Allow this to dry thoroughly before refilling the pool.
How are you planning on making the pool water tight? If you want to use a Vinyl Liner, you should consult the dealer you are planning on ordering the liner from. A lot of Vinyl Liner manufactures will not make a liner for that pool.
