The choice of pool liner makes a huge difference to the look and feel of your swimming pool. It adds a vibrant colour and texture to your pool while serving the critical role of being a barrier between the pool wall and the water inside of it.
While the fundamental purpose of a pool liner is to keep the water inside the swimming pool and prevent leaks, there are so many shapes and sizes available that you’ll be able to create a unique look for your pool to enjoy hours of outdoor fun. When installed properly, quality pool liners provide years of protection and enjoyment.
The different types of pool liners
- Vinyl (PVC) liners
- Fibreglass reinforced plastic (FRP) liners
Factors to consider when choosing a pool liner
Consider your needs
What type of pool liner are you looking for? Do you need a liner for an above-ground pool or an inground pool? The answers to these questions will determine the type of pool liner that is best suited for your needs.
Stern’s Backyard offers a collection of above-ground pool liners to suit any backyard.
Quality of the material
When choosing the right pool liner, it is imperative to consider the quality of the material, not just the colour or design. The quality of the pool liner will have an impact on the longevity and durability of the liner. Poor quality liners are more likely to crack, fade and deteriorate prematurely.
High-quality pool liners are made from either vinyl or composite materials that last longer and hold up better against sunlight and chemicals. They are able to resist tears and punctures, ultimately protecting the pool.
Stern’s Backyard’s range of PVC pool liners are tough and chemical resistant: perfect for your modular pool.
When it comes to choosing the right pool liner, cost is a major consideration. Pool liners can range in price from economical vinyl liners to expensive higher-end liners made from materials such as fibreglass or composite materials.
If you are installing a custom-made liner, the cost will be higher than a standard liner. If cost is a consideration, consider purchasing a one-piece liner from Stern’s Backyard that has already been cut and sized to fit your pool area.
