    Liner Replacement Question


    I'm new to the forum.

    We are replacing our current liner which is torn. Our pool is 18 x 36. I have several estimates, all are very similar. The lowest is $2650 for a 20mil liner, drain, replace, fill and start up with new return faceplates, as well as touch up the bottom where necessary.

    The second estimate if $2800, same 20 mil liner, same service, but he says he will spray some type of foam on our steel walls.

    My question is, is the foam worth it/necessary for the extra $150 cost?

    Thanks for any input on this. Our pool is about 15 years old, this will be its 3rd liner but our first.

    Welcome to TFP!

    I would get the foam, but it certainly isn't required. It gives the walls a slightly better feel and helps protect the wall against pinhole leaks.
