CUSTOM IN-GROUND POOLS
A vinyl liner pool has a custom made sheet of vinyl between the water and the pool structure. Vinyl liners are held in place by extrusion (coping). Underneath the liner is a sand or vermiculite floor, specified in dimension to the "cut" of the liner that is to be used. Vermiculite allows ground water to move freely without jeopardizing the integrity of the pool bottom. The walls are commonly 3 ft by 8 ft panels made of galvanized steel or thermoplastic. These walls are supported from behind with a concrete lock, commonly known as a footer, creating a stable and permanent barrier. This will prevent the walls from moving both from the water pressure and ground pressure. All of the wall panels are secured together to make up the perimeter shape of the swimming pool.
There are many advantages to installing a vinyl liner pool. Vinyl pools are very flexible and cannot crack like a concrete pool. You will never have to repaint or re-plaster a vinyl pool. A vinyl liner makes all surfaces of your pool smooth. Because of the flexibility with the steel walls, a vinyl pool offers unlimited design options, sizes and shapes for your backyard. A vinyl pool is also less expensive than a fiberglass pool or concrete pool.
Vinyl liners are not limited in colors and patterns. As in all in-ground pools, a variety of features may be added to your vinyl pool including spas, waterfalls, decking, laminar jets, lighting effects and pool heaters.
VINYL LINER REPLACEMENTS
A vinyl liner replacement starts with a precise measurement of all dimension of the existing pool. This is will ensure a proper fit. Once the existing liner has been removed, a thorough inspection of the pool base, steel walls, extrusion, and fittings is conducted. After any and all repairs along with a pressure test, the new liner is ready for installation. Upon completion of liner installation, all gaskets and fittings will be replaced. This includes all main drain lids to comply with the Virginia Graham Baker law.
