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