How to clean swimming pool liners?
You will need:
Nylon pool brush. Soft cloths. Mild cleanser. Ascorbic acid pool mitt optional.
Use the nylon pool brush to scrub down your entire liner on a weekly basis throughout the swimming season. A brush without any sharp edges is best. A liner is susceptible to tearing, so sharp edges can easily cause damage.
Apply a mild cleanser directly to dirt on the liner, or rub it on with a soft cloth. Use ascorbic acid, or Vitamin C, to help you get rid of stubborn stains, which are likely metal stains. You can use Vitamin C tablets intended for ingestion, or you can get granular ascorbic acid intended to use in pools, such as Vita-D-Chlor. Rub the ascorbic acid onto the stain and you should see an immediate effect.
Check the water line regularly for build up, which can eventually build up enough to collect dirt and stain your vinyl liner with metal stains. Rubbing the waterline with a pool scrubbing mitt makes this maintenance easier. Add a small amount of cleaner or ascorbic acid if needed.
Cleaning a swimming pool liner can involve draining the pool and scrubbing down the surface with cleansers that are formulated for the task.
With proper care, a liner can easily last for many years before replacement is required.
How long will a swimming pool liner last?
Generally, a properly installed liner guarantees longevity but other factors also must be considered, such as water chemistry and chemicals used.
Generally, the life of your pool liner depends on the following:
- The amount of direct sun light that the pool receives. If the pool gets a lot of direct sun light, then it will fade some over time.
- Chemicals. Keeping your pool chemicals properly balanced will help to keep the liner from fading. Don’t throw tablets to the bottom of a vinyl liner swimming pool, the chlorine can burn a hole in the liner.
- A salt water pool will extend the life of a liner. The chlorine made by the salt purification system is better long term on the liner than putting chlorine tablets in a skimmer, chlorinator or floater.
When having a new pool liner installed, always make sure to have a pool professional with experience install the new liner. This will avoid complications.
Why does a swimming pool leak?
Vinyl liners can leak through the natural deterioration process and environmental exposure. If the vinyl liner has a small puncture, it can be located and patch easily. If the leak has existed for a longer period, it may cause greater damage to the liner. A leak or tear in the liner allows water to collect behind the liner, causing it to stretch and be pulled from its top edge. In addition to structural leaks, skimmers, main drains and return lines are top culprits of swimming pool leaks.
Gunite is a mixture of cement, sand and water that can be molded into any shape desired. Gunite is porous and should not be used by itself to construct a pool. There must be a water barrier between the porous gunite and the pool water, such as plaster.
Plaster is then applied to not only ensure a smooth touch on the pool surface but also to create a water barrier between the pool water and the gunite. If the plaster is not thick enough, it could allow water to seep through the gunite. This will result in water loss that is difficult to isolate without draining the pool. Seasonal changes such as freezing and thawing will cause plaster to eventually crack. Winterizing your pool properly will help to keep your pool’s gunite/plaster structure intact.
Fiberglass pools are prefabricated shells. When a fiberglass pool has a leak, it is important to maintain the water level as the pool shell may “float” out of the ground if the water level in the pool is lower than the water level in the ground around the pool. If the water level is too low, the sides of the pool could bulge inward from the pressure of the surrounding soil. A floating fiberglass pool could crack the deck as well as cause massive damage to the pool’s plumbing.
