    Blue diffusion liner in 30mil, anyone have pics with water?

    Just gave the go ahead for my pool reno guy to replace the liner in our 22 year old pool and we chose this liner print with no border, we mainly chose a no border print because pools we seen online without a border seem to look bigger...optical illusion I guess. The other reason was to eliminate the possibility of the border level not matching our water level which would annoy me to no end.

    Anyone have this style liner? Sure would appreciate a pic if you do!

    If you only knew how many hours I spent trying to decide on a liner pattern...whew!

    Liner replacement went very well, completed in two days after pumpout. Went swimming today for the first time, got her balanced and sparkling in two days thanks to TFP and the BBB method!

    Some pics of the replacement so others can see what this color/pattern liner looks like with water and how bleached out our 20 year old liner looked when we replaced it.

    How it looked in the fall when we were getting ready for winter.

    How it looked this last week once UV Pools got the water out, hard to believe it lasted 20 years!

    New liner going in after bottom resurfacing, capping main drain and replacing one return due to slight cracking around the internal threading, one less thing to worry about in Canadian winters by omitting the bottom drain (it wasn't leaking BTW). Took out the light and capped it also, just attracts bugs in the prairies...one less hole in the liner.

    Took two days to get the brown out with 2 litres of floc and 2 litres of sequester, water was very alkaline at PH 8.2 but 3 litres of MA took care of that.

    [attachment=0:15u2351e]IMG_5743.jpg[/attachment:15u2351e]

    Went swimming today, heres the numbers;

    Temp = 28C
    FC = 2.5
    CC = 0.0
    PH = 7.4
    TA = 90
    CH = 60
    CYA = 30

    Perfectly balanced heated and clear in two days!

    Couldn't have done it without the help of UV Pools measuring the liner accurately and installing it professionally (hard working guys BTW), lots of fun working with you...well watching you work anyway LMAO!

    Highly recommended and experienced liner replacement techs in Winnipeg.

    I only wish I had enough cash to replace the steps, there doesn't seem to be a reliable way to coat them to eliminate the faded look. They are plastic PVC or ABS or some other sort of polymer combination that no one wants to guarantee their work on, I actually think a polyamide aircraft primer and then Imron paint top coat would work but its not something I want to experiment on.

    The slide I can have redone but I want to try and polish the gelcoat on it first, if anyone has any recommendations on step re-coating and slide refurbishment I would be grateful.

    The liner looks amazing! I am just starting my search for liner replacement as over the winter the liner decided to tear near the water line .
    Was wondering if you felt comfortable sharing what the cost of your liner and installation was?

    I really dont want to start this process but I will soon have angry kids if I dont lol!

    Wow! Looks great.

    Get this, my liner I removed is EXACTLY the same as yours was, installed in 1988. The liner going in on Monday is the EXACT same pattern, except with a tile border. Great choice! I have a thread going also, here: new-liner-install-t31632.html

    $8200 which included new liner channel, resurfacing, capping main drain and cutting into the deck to replace one return.

    Haha my original install date was 1989, glad we did it this year and didnt wait...the liner was very brittle on the surfacing side on the bottom. Wasn't leaking though, but the liner guys did mention I likely dodged a bullet because once it leaks the price increases exponentially.
