Thread: Unboxed Liner Shelf Life

    Unboxed Liner Shelf Life

    I am in the process of getting my 2.5 year old liner replaced by manufacturer. This is due to a uneven fade issue, not a physical problem. With that, I am leaning toward getting the replacement and putting in storage. This will be in our living space, in basement storage. So no temp extremes, approximately 60F-72F year round. How long can this be stored if left in sealed box?

    Sometimes the company will require you to send back a big enough piece of the liner being replaced to make sure it's not still able to be used. I can't advise you on the shelf Life, but I figured the heads up might help if you didn't know.

    Assuming they do not need anything back, anyone have an idea on the shelf life if in conditioned space indoors?

    For those interested, I got my liner last week. Nothing was required to return. All 200lbs of this liner are in storage in a spare bedroom closet. I asked GLI about shelf life. They indicated that in conditioned space, their findings are up to 5 years without impact. I may not go that far, but will at least get another 2-3 years out of my existing, slightly faded liner. In the end, GLI stood by their product and warranty.

    You might consider putting the liner in a lidded container. Maybe a garbage can if it will fit. I've read that rodents like to chew into stored liners.
