Thicker is not always better. If it is a rough base (cement or sand and cement), 28 0r 30 is better. If it is poolcrete or vermiculite base, 20 is better.

what you can do in this situation depends on what is under the vinyl liner now.

Inground vinyl is better, their is less exposed part to the oxigene, therefore, last longer.

There is special adhesive for this,sold in pool maintenance stores.

As long as the vinyl liner pool is inground, it can be converted. But you'll probably have to remove all of the vinyl pool elements until you have reduced the pool to a big hole in the ground and then start from there. All it takes is time and money!

The walls of some above ground and some inground vinyl liner pool kits are made of aluminum.

Some pool companys are not in business. most all inground pools have the same size treads..

If you have water behind your vinyl in ground pool liner, you should first lower the water in the pool to normal levels if it is over-filled. Make sure that the vacuum pipe is clear, unclog it if it is not. Once it is unblocked let the water from behind the liner flow out.

Installers use vinyl liners to create inground pools without pouring concrete. Here's an overview of the topic http://www.poolandspa.com/page232.htm.

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. 1. Sand floor, steel walls, vinyl liner 2. Sand floor, fiberglass walls, vinyl liner 3. Vermiculite floor, steel walls, vinyl liner 4. Vermiculite floor, fiberglass walls, vinyl liner 5. Concrete floor, steel walls, vinyl liner 6. Concrete floor, fiberglass walls, vinyl liner 7. 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

This is unfortunately a circuitous question since both are common names for the same product. PVC stands for PolyVinyl Chloride and this type of liner is often refered to as a "Vinyl Liner". Sometimes when someone asks for a PVC pool liner they are referring to a Commercial (reinforced for strenght and textured for slip resistance) PVC Pool Liner or PVC Pool Membrane (e.g. RenoSys is the most successfully installed North American Brand). Whereas residential PVC or Vinyl Liners are only 20 to 28 mils thick, a Commercial membrane is reinforced with a scrim and is typically 60 mils thick.

A fiberglass pool is far superior to a vinyl liner pool. It is also about twice as expensive.

we just did it. remove the top lip and pour boiling water over the liner to soften then pull it back up into its proper place and replace the lip. done

A 20 by 40 vinyl liner pool will cost around 1500 for the liner and 1500 for the labor. If you have a cement or vermiculite ( a type of cement) floor . If you have a sand bottom there is a extra charge for labor

no on paint! You will need to replace the liner.

Hydrostatic pressure or poor water chemistry. If the watertable is high the liner will float and when the water recedes will create a suction and pinch the liner. If your alkalinity and stabilizer levels are low the sanitizer will not have any molecules to attach to so it goes after the vinyl. The pulls the plastizer out the vinyl and causes it to prematurely fade and wrinkle.

High concentrations of chlorine can and will destroy a vinyl liner.

User Avatar

Big NO NO ! It will soften or destroy the vinyl

Yes, replace the liner. Nothing can put the color back into plastic or vinyl or glass or steel.

There are a number of ways you could remove stains from worms on a vinyl liner. You could use cleaners.
