    When should I get a new liner installed.

    I have a new to me pool that is about 12 years old. The liner is bleached out in the deep end, and really faded and bad looking above the water line. there are 9 or 10 patches, so it's time for a new liner. Does it make more sense to do the new liner at the end of this season, fill the pool up with new water, then close it for the winter, or should I close the pool with the existing liner, then get a new liner installed in the spring?

    21900 gal in-ground pool. 40' X 20' oval. 3' deep shallow end and 8' deep end. 1.5hp pump, cartridge filter, one chlorine reactor and another that I'm not sure has a frog on it?

    I would do in when you would open the pool for the next swimming season UNLESS you are losing a lot of water and run the risk of it draining too much over the winter. I have nothing to base this on other that my gut LOL

    Just remember to look into it now and not the spring, builders will be swamped and it may be hard to find someone to install it.

    What we did for our replaster job was get quotes in September and then put down a deposit so we were one of the first jobs in the spring. The builders get booked up fast in the spring time.
