20 mil Virgin Vinyl
Embossed vinyl varies in thickness, leading to a substandard product that is more apt to rip, wear unevenly or otherwise fail prematurely. The illustration below shows how embossed vinyl measures the thickness of the material at the highest point of the embossing rather than the valley which is the true thickness of the material. That is not an option for Crestwood liners.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
on Pool Liners
How much are liners for pools?
Repairing liners in an inground pool is far more expensive than a liner in an above ground pool, semi inground or onground pool. The price difference can be as much as $3,500, further demonstrating the cost savings of going with a pool type other than inground. If you spend anywhere near $500 on a replacement swimming pool liner, you should expect that liner to last 10 to 20 years, depending on such factors as where you live and how well you maintain your chlorine levels.
What thickness pool liner is best?
Pool liners vary in thickness. They’re measured in mils, or 1/1000 of an inch, and can range from 20 mils to 30 mils thick. You may think thicker is better, and you’d be right if you are concerned about punctures caused by sharp nails, dog claws or other pool devices that come in contact with the liner. If you’re planning on building the pool yourself, and/or you’d like to minimize expenses, you will likely prefer a thinner pool liner. Thick pool liners can be very difficult to install, possibly requiring professional installation, and they’re more expensive than thinner pool liners. Thinner liners, such as our 20 mil liners, are less expensive, more elastic and workable, and because we only use Virgin Vinyl, you’re getting the extra benefit of a clear protective coating that protects against depreciating chemicals, bacteria, fungus, algae and more.
