Inground swimming pool liners. Discount pool liners can be found but vinyl pool liner repair and pool liner wrinkles can cost money in the long run.
So it's time to replace that old one with a new one. Where do you start? You're asking yourself, "What the most important part in buying swimming pool liners?
Could it be the price, selection, service, pattern, thickness, or warranty?" Well, honestly, it's none of the above. If you haven't read through the above ground swimming pool liner section, then I would encourage you to do so. Much of the swimming pool cost information can be interchanged with above ground pool kits and above ground pool liner installation.
I believe the most important part of the selection process of buying an inground swimming pool vinyl liner is the pool liner manufacturer and contractor who is going to do the vinyl pool liner installation. Yes, everything else will blur your mind. Let's say you hire a contractor that doesn't know simple pool liner installation instructions or how to how to install a pool liner, then what? You're stuck looking at wrinkles and bumps. Ever catch your toe on a seam? It doesn't feel very good. What if the contractor misses a measurement? Say the guy down the street sells a name brand like Doughboy pool liners, installs it, then leaves town in two years. What now?
You need to do your homework and choose a quality and qualified pool professional that is local and will guarantee the work to your satisfaction and will do any swimming pool liner repair if needed. Making this kind of decision is very emotional. The excitement of getting a new or replacement pool liners is like getting a new car. The smell and feel is sometimes too much for people to handle, especially if they're passionate about their pools. There are many available liners on the market and each one is probably very good in its own right.
But the product is only as good as the contractor who installs inground vinyl liners.
So you're finished with the first part. You've done your research, found a good local contractor, and now it's time to choose the best inground vinyl liners. Next is the fun part. The most important aspect of going through the pool vinyl liner process is to choose the one that "speaks" to you. I know this may sound a little corny, but it's true. When you see the perfect swimming pool vinyl liners, you'll know it. Remember, you'll be looking at this color and pattern for the next few years, and you'll want to make sure it's right.
What YOU think matters most, and nobody else.
Will you have tile, or not? That's a decision that only you can answer. The tile pattern can add a nice little accent piece to your pool, but it could take away from the liner effects you're hoping for. All that matters is that you like it and works in your world.
That may sound just a bit strange. Shouldn't water be clear? Yes it should be, but when you have a colored pool liner, the water will change colors. You might want a slight blue, or a hint of color here and there. Rich blue colors and patterns have the most "oomph" while lighter shades of blue, Aqua, and Turquoise will have a beautiful glistening effect.
Standard liner thickness is 20 mil. although you can go higher. The fit of the liner is also important for longevity and durability.
It can vary from region to region, but typically you'll be looking at around $3,000 - $5,000 to replace your inground pool liner. Above ground pools are much less and can start around $500 and go up from there.
You'll find the average inground pool liner will last between 5 - 10 years and the average above-ground pool liner will last about the same amount of time. Please keep in mind this is in a perfect world. Many factors must be taken into consideration such as sun, heat, UV rays, and pool chemistry. Most pool liners have a "25 - 30 year" warranty. But, after doing this pool gig since 1999, I can tell you that's a joke. Many warranties are extremely prorated. Most of the time a pool liner that has a 25 year warranty will only have a FULL warranty for 2 - 5 years, then the prorate starts. Please don't think that if your liner rips in the 24th year, you can simply call up the manufacturer and get a brand new liner installed for free. As they say in Virginia, where I'm from, "that sure ain't not never gonna happen".

Good question. The answer is "kinda yes". There are many different styles of swimming pool liners. The days are long gone when you were relegated to a solid blue color. You can always ask the company if they will install the liner for you. They all want your business, but you need to remember the correct size and shape of your pool to get the right fit.
Talk to your local pool supply company, contractor, or simply go online and look at the many different styles and colors of inground swimming pool liners, inexpensive and cheap pool liners, and above ground pool accessories.
