Thread: Not a Blue Liner

    Question Not a Blue Liner

    Hello All. I am replacing my in-ground Vinyl liner and was wondering if anyone has ever used/seen this one from loop-loc.

    http://www.looploc.com/images/liners...ino-detail.jpg

    we had this one from Merlin--It was OK--I did not love it to death.We chose it mostly because the tile border went with the coping/pavers.

    We have tan bull nose coping with cream colored grout and Tannish pavers.. The water looks blue in the pic which is good. I am wondering if It will be too much tan I really don't like any of the other colors. Has anyone actually seen this loop-loc one in action..Any input is welcome.

    Thanks.

    I saw something similar to the first one on a demo pool at my pool company. It didn't have the border but it was beautiful. I fell in love with it.

    Re: Not a Blue Liner

    The tan color liners will provide a water color similar to aqua.

    the other blue liner I would consider to be a medium blue (very similar to mine) and will be very blue once filled with water.

    I don't recall offhand, I will ask my better/smarter half tonight.

    A few things to keep in mind that I learned, these are my opinions and I've only replaced my liner once and I've been known to be wrong, or so says my other half. So take them with a grain of salt.

    The installer is more important than the brand. Go with the thicker liner only if it's free. I don't remember what it's called but there is a device that you can attach to your hose and it will count the amount of gallons as you fill your pool, this way you don't have to guesstimate when using the pool calculator. If you have dogs, now is the time to train them, with the old liner, to use the steps so that they don't scratch the new one.
    The most important factor in the longevity of the liner is your chem levels. My neighbor replaces his every 7 years and he thinks that's normal.


    Remember to post pics!

    Re: Not a Blue Liner

    I almost went with one of those....I had white plaster at the old place and the old liner at the new place was totally gone for.

    Ended up with the medium blue pebble-tec looking liner...as that was what I was going to re-plaster the white pool with, but ended up
    selling that house.

    I'm very pleased with it.

    Indeed, my old liner must have been taken very good care of...it lasted 25 YEARS before failing on the previous home-owners.

    Question: JRGuzmanR

    Did your installer remove the rust on the steel panels and did they tell you where all the green stuff came from? Is this normal for a liner pool? Did they repair anything before installing the new liner? If you had success, maybe you can send me the name of the company for down the road. You can PM if you wish.

    I sent a PM and it didn't show up in my sent folder, so I sent another one which doesn't show up either, so you either have two PM's from me or none. Let me know.

    Re: Not a Blue Liner

    I received your messages. I may even post a new thread on experiences people have had with liner companies. Regarding what they did, did not do, or what the homeowner would do different next time. Thanks!

    Jr- if you go to your Notifications at the top of the page, then go to My Account (on the left), General Settings, make sure the button on the right is checked that says -Save a copy of sent messages in my Sent Items folder by default
    That could be why sent mail isn't showing up.
