There is no hard timeline for when you need to have a pool liner replaced. This is because there are many factors that can affect how long your liner lasts, including the material it’s made from, its thickness, the quality of the installation process, how well maintained your pool is, the weather conditions where you live, and the types of chemicals you use in your pool. While there is no timeline for when your liner should be replaced, your liner will show signs it’s nearing the end of its lifespan. Here are some ways you can tell when it’s time to have your pool liner replaced:


The Liner is Beginning to Wrinkle

One of the signs that it’s time to replace your pool liner is it’s beginning to wrinkle. As your pool liner ages, it will not have the same amount of elasticity as it did when it was brand new. As it loses its elasticity, it begins to fall or sag, which causes wrinkles. This is much like the same process that happens naturally to our skin as we age. When you see these wrinkles start to pop up, your liner is due for a replacement.


The Liner Has a Crack or Leak

When your liner has a crack or leak in it, it needs to be replaced quickly. While you may be able to see a crack in the liner, detecting a leak is not always as easy. If you feel like you are refilling your pool more often than normal, you may have a leak. Royal Pool & Spa can come inspect the pool and determine if a leak is present and where the leak is happening. If it is in the liner, the liner needs to be replaced.


The Liner is Stained or Faded

A pool’s aesthetic is important to many home or business owners, so if the pool liner is stained or faded, you might want to replace it. There is no way to remove stains from a liner, and there is no way to restore color to a faded liner. Replacing the liner helps your pool to look clean and vibrant.
