How do I know when to replace my pool liner?

So many factors can impact your vinyl liner’s lifespan. Some of the most common signs that indicate you need to start shopping for an above ground pool liner replacement include:

  1. The liner is cracking or tearing.
  2. The liner is leaking.
  3. There are wrinkles in your liner.
  4. Your liner has started to fade.
  5. Your liner is stained or discolored.
  6. Your liner slips out of the track.

Can you put a new vinyl pool liner over an old one?

We do not recommend leaving 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. Installing a replacement pool liner requires you to redo or re-groom the bottom of the pool base and add a liner pad before installation. All the more reason to just throw the old liner out and start fresh!

My pool liner replacement looks too small. Should I stretch the liner so that it fits in my pool?

You never want to stretch your new vinyl swimming pool liner physically. The main reason is that it will void the manufacturer’s warranty. Also, by stretching the pool liner into the pool, you are thinning out the vinyl material making the swimming pool liner more susceptible to damage. If your pool liner replacement looks too small, you may need to upgrade to a bigger size!

    I got a new liner for my 21 ft pool. The one I got measured that it was for that size. I have installed it, but the overlap does not seem to be long enough. As the water level rises, the liner comes off. Do you have any advice? I don’t want to have to buy a whole new liner.
    Thank you for any help.
