What Can Tell You Need Inground Swimming Pool Liner Renovations?

Irene Montgomery

Do you suspect your pool is losing water? The problem could be a leaky liner, the synthetic rubber or plastic membrane covering your pool's walls and floor. The main purpose of an inground pool liner is to keep water in and prevent it from seeping through the concrete or vinyl shell. Unfortunately, leaky liners form the bulk of complaints about inground swimming pools. Here are several signs that can point to the need for professional inground swimming pool liner renovations:

1. Water Level Drops

One of the clearest signs of a leaking swimming pool liner is a sudden drop in the water level. This can be difficult to notice if you do not check the water level regularly, but it clearly indicates that water is escaping from the pool. If you see this happening, it is important to take action to confirm with proper gauging and call a pool contractor when you confirm it. 

2. The Liner is Starting to Sag or Wrinkle

If the liner in your inground pool is starting to sag or wrinkle, it is a sign that it has become damaged and can no longer provide a tight seal. This can be caused by several factors, including sunlight exposure, chemicals, and physical wear and tear. Call a pool contractor to make preparations for  inground swimming pool liner renovations

3. The Pool Has Developed Organic Growth

Mold and mildew in the pool can be a health hazard for you and your family. It will usually form where the liner has wrinkles or fissures. While these fungal growths can be controlled with antiseptic solutions, it is good to properly inspect the liner to identify if these infiltrations are happening through cracks.

4. The Area Around the Pool Has Lush Vegetation

If the area around your inground pool has lush vegetation, it is a sign that water is leaking from the pool. The extra moisture in the soil can encourage the growth of plants and grass, so if you see this happening, it is important to take quick action to fix the leak.

Leaks can cause significant water loss and also make the pool uncomfortable, so it is important to fix them as soon as possible. They also have a high hidden cost in wasted water. Call a pool contractor today to plan inground swimming pool liner renovations if you notice any of these signs, to diagnose and solve problems.

My husband and I are considering selling our small brick home in the near future. While we’ve completed some work on this house recently, we know we will need to do a few more things before we put it on the market. For instance, we need to replace some of the flooring, paint some of the walls, and replace some of the siding on the front porch. In addition, we may want to add a pool to the backyard. Because we live in the hot southern United States, many of our neighbors have pools. On this blog, I hope you will discover the best types of pools to install in a home you may sell in the near future. Enjoy!
