Thread: Liner Install

    Liner Install

    We are doing a DIY 18 x 36 pool. (Well, semi DIY.) We have a bid for the vermiculite bottom labor only for $800 and liner install for $500. Is this a good idea and price, or should we save the money and DIY it? We are good at construction and DIY projects, but we have never done a pool.

    I chose to have the vermiculite installed....I don't regret that.

    Get PLENTY of help and the liner install is doable.....it'll take you longer than you think.

    $800 is very good for vermiculite labor. $500 also seems reasonable for liner, but you could definitely do that yourself with the help of some friends.

    duraleigh and ssgumby,

    Thanks for your help. I think we are going to hire the vermiculite for sure. Still debating on the liner install.
    Thanks again for you help.
