Most in-ground vinyl liners generally last around 10-12 years. It depends on where you live and the chemical care that you give to the pool.
Replacing a Vinyl Pool Wall
If you need to replace the entire vinyl pool wall panel, it can be done in the same way as a small patch. You're going to need to get an entire piece of the above-ground pool wall and bolt the new part of the wall to the existing pool wall.
As I have said earlier, above grounds last between 10 and 20 years on average. Liners last about half that time so you can count on replacing the liner in your pool at least once, but probably more during the life of the pool. The thicker, fully printed liners will last on average between five and eight years.
These are the pools with the shortest life expectancies. A high quality above ground will generally last 10-20 years. Those years aren't without added expense. Throughout the years, you can expect to replace the liner at least once or twice, while the frame should last the full 10-20 years.
Generally, pool water needs to be replaced once every five to seven years. This should be done during mild weather so that your pool surface is not at risk from strong sunlight and heat. Your pool maintenance company can recommend when it is time to drain your pool.
A high-quality above ground pool from Valley Pool & Spa should last between 10 and 20 years depending on how well you care for it. However, your pool liner will not last as long as your pool.
CaliMar pools are the strongest, longest lasting models of pools on the market and all carry an unprecedented 8 Year - 100% warranty along with a Lifetime warranty on the above ground pool liners.
Intex brand metal frame pools often last up to 7 years.
Typically, a steel above-ground pool purchased from a "big box retail store" can last up to 10-15 years, but liners usually last about 5-8 years and it may be necessary to replace other equipment like the ladder, pump and filter as needed, too.
Typically, above ground pool liners measure 20 or 25 mil. For a little context, a dime measures 49 mil while a standard sheet of paper measures just 10 mil.
Regular maintenance and care of the pool will get you 4 to 5 years of use.
You need a much thicker pool wall to fully bury your pool. While the installation of your above ground pool will probably require some excavation to get a level surface to assemble your pool, that excavation process is not intended to sink your above ground pool completely into the dirt.
It may be cheaper to run the pump at night, but honestly you should run it 1 hour a day per 10 degrees of temperature at least, and it should be during the day. Running the pump at night should only be when you are doing a major chemical treatment such as algae clean-up.
In warmer climates, Intex advises to keep your pool up, if you prefer. However, you must winterize the pool when keeping it full throughout the winter. If your area maintains tropical climates all year long, you may not need to winterize your pool at all, especially if you use your pool on a regular basis.
After Shocking Your Pool
It is safe to swim once your chlorine levels are around 5 ppm or after 24 hours. It is always best to test first!
The deepest above-ground pool available is the Intex 36-Foot by 16-Foot by 52-Inch Above-Ground Pool. The four-foot depth may not seem like a lot, but in the world of above-ground pools, it's tough to find deeper floors.
Typically, a long, rectangular pool is based for laps since it lets you swim in a straight line. A rounded pool would be better for lounging and for recreational swims. These pools are usually smaller and do not have a straight path for swimming laps.
An above-ground pool is, by far, the least-expensive option for a pool. Kids love them, and built-in fencing and locking gate options make them safe as long as an adult monitors them. The main disadvantage of an above-ground pool is that it generally adds no value to your home.
Can you put a new vinyl pool liner over an old one? We do not recommend that you leave your old pool liner in your above ground swimming pool when replacing the liner. It may seem like an extra layer of protection, but in reality, it will create more problems for you.
It's no shock (pun intended) that chemicals and the sun are often the cause of fading and discoloration on your vinyl pool liner. While slight fading is common and occurs gradually over time, harsh sun and chemical exposure can cause your liner to fade prematurely.
Wrinkles in your pool's vinyl liner are not only unsightly but can also cause tears and holes if not corrected. Wrinkles in the vinyl liner are fairly common and can develop suddenly or slowly over time.
