A keen eye would observe that many private swimming pools have a vinyl liner. A vinyl liner plays a crucial role in protecting your pool – in fact, it acts as the waterproofing membrane between the water and your pool structure. The liners, comprised of durable materials, are resistant to tears and punctures. However, if improperly installed, your pool vinyl liner will not last as long as it is intended too. On the other end, the elements do take its toll on the vinyl liners, thus corrosion is inevitable. Chlorine and UV-rays exposure will weaken your swimming pool liner, the key waterproofing membrane, which will leave your pool prone to leaks and damage.
If you find tears or holes in your pool liner, have it fixed immediately. Repairing the issue while it is still relatively minor is better than spending more amount of money on removing and replacing the pool liner with a pricey new one. Skypeak Maintenance Services manages these minor repairs quickly and efficiently without breaking the bank.
Types of Pool Liner Repair
Wrinkles in Fabric
Wrinkles in pool liner fabric is normal, especially in Singapore where heat is extreme and if your pool is located outdoors. To reset your pool liner fabric and get rid of the folds, empty your pool and reinstall the liner. Of course, professionals should be hired to make sure that the job is done right and with the right tools.
Sagging edges are common as well and often occur at the corners or along the top edge of the pool. Professionals know that the best way to fix sagging edges is on a hot day or after your liner has been exposed directly to sunlight.
Rips and Tear
If the rip is smaller than 6 inches, it can be repaired fairly easily. However, if it is longer than 6 inches, you will need to call in the experts. Skypeak Maintenance services will be able to assist you especially by identifying the root cause of the rip.
