What is most important when considering a new in-ground liner?
The fall season is the perfect time of year to replace your in-ground pool liner. With the swimming season winding down, you can replace your liner now and be ready for the first day of swimming next year.
What is the most important issue to consider when buying a new liner for your pool? Is it price? Is it the liner pattern or thickness? The length of warranty? Which pool liner brand to choose?
In reality, it is none of these. Instead, the most important decision is which local swimming pool contractor you are going to hire to measure, install and stand behind the purchase of your new in-ground vinyl pool liner. Every other decision can just be a distraction. If you hire someone who misses one measurement, you may spend the next seven years looking at wrinkles. If you let someone who is inexperienced install your pool liner, you may have wrinkles or a pool liner that will fail early on. If you buy from someone out of town or who is not around in a few years, you will have no advocate to make sure your warranty claim is treated fairly in case there is a problem. It is your local swimming pool industry professional who lives and works in your community that will guarantee your satisfaction. Choose that contractor wisely. Nothing else is more important.
