A Vinyl-Lined Pool has a vinyl membrane as the pool floor and wall material, custom-made to fit the shell of the pool. All of the wall panels are secured together to make up the perimeter shape of the pool.
Liners are meant to fit tightly into the shape of the pool. If the liner was installed slightly off center, or if the liner is too large or too small for the pool’s shape, the bead might pop out of the track.
The original color of your liner will fade with the use of sanitizing chemicals and exposure to the sun. Harsh chemicals and high concentrations of such are to be avoided as much as possible. They remove the plasticizers which give liners their resiliency, leading to brittle vinyl, and eventually ruined liners. Because of the chemical makeup of modern vinyl, liners are now much more durable and resistant to chemical, solar and algae problems.
Liners are typically manufactured in 20 mil thickness (28-30 mil option). Although resistant to punctures, it can and does happen, especially as the liner ages and loses its resiliency. If you spot a small hole in the liner, simply patch it with a vinyl liner patch kit (and if underwater, buy a “wet” patch kit). If the source of the leak isn’t readily apparent, Superior Pool Service can help!
Sooner or later, your pool’s liner will need to be replaced. When that time comes, it is also an ideal time to make modifications to your pool, like adding an automatic cleaner line. When that time comes, Superior Pool Service is ready to assist you.
We want to assure you that Superior Pool Service and all our employees are taking the COVID-19 virus very seriously. We want you to know what we are doing to keep you safe and to keep ourselves safe from this virus while we continue to maintain your pool.
First, we want you to know that we are at an advantage in that we work with chlorinated (and sanitized) water all day long. The National Swimming Pool Foundation and the Center for Disease Control recommend 1 to 3 parts per million of chlorine in your swimming pool water. This level will kill viruses and bacteria in 3 to 5 seconds and is the level we have always maintained in your pool each visit.
Additionally, our Pool Technicians will be doing everything they can to keep themselves bacteria and virus free during and between our service stops. We have minimal contact with other people in our work capacity and ensure we have the absolute minimal contact outside of our work as well.
During the weekly service visit we ask that you do not have anyone outside while we are servicing your pool. We will not be knocking on doors but will call you if we need to get in contact with you regarding your pool. Therefore, we ask that you make sure gates are unlocked and pets are inside or locked up on your regularly scheduled service day.
If there is anything we can do to help you, please let us know. Remember that we are always available by phone or email 972-221-2253 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
