photo of yinly-lined swimming poolWestmoreland Pool, Irwin, Pa., built this steel-wall vinyl liner pool in nine days.

A vinyl-liner pool is furnished to the installer in kit form. After excavation, the panel walls are bolted or fastened together and supported at the bottom by a concrete footing. The vinyl liner is spread over the interior of the  pool and covers the excavated floor and paneled walls. It is connected to the top of the panel walls by a vinyl rib at the outside edge of the liner. Be sure to ask your dealer how often liners generally have to be replaced in your area of the country. Construction time for vinyl-liner pools is typically one to three weeks.

Points to Ponder:

Vinyl-liner pools are popular in cold-weather areas of the country. The pools can be easily winterized by draining them down and covering them until the spring.

Smooth Surface:
The vinyl liner is smooth and nonporous, making stain removal easy if stains are treated promptly.
