Pool Liner Replacement Ponte Vedra Beach FL
Pools can be made of a few different materials. Concrete, fiberglass and vinyl are the most common. Vinyl is the least expensive and people generally opt for vinyl when they’re looking for economic value. However, with vinyl pools, patching and eventual replacement are likely unavoidable. Patching isn’t difficult and can be accomplished without professional assistance. If not, we’d be happy to assist you in patching your vinyl pool.
Vinyl lining has a lifespan of about ten years. After that, you’ll likely need to replace it. It’s also important to keep the pH levels balanced as doing so will maximize its lifespan. Water in Florida can be very hard so it’s important to keep an eye on mineral content.

Usually there are two major causes of vinyl deterioration. One is UV rays from the sun. Unfortunately UV rays are pretty much unavoidable unless you have an indoor pool or have some kind of canopy. The second cause of vinyl deterioration is acid imbalances which interact with the chemical bonds on the vinyl.
You’ll know when and if you need a replacement if you can visualize cracks and tears in the vinyl. If the vinyl is significantly faded, you want to keep an eye out for this. After 6-8 years you’ll probably notice a loss in elasticity as well. This can also cue you in to be on the lookout for vinyl tears and holes. If you have a hole or leak somewhere, it can be easily patched but if there are several you likely need a replacement.
