    New liner install

    I knew my liner was going to need to be replaced soon. Over the past few years I have had to install a few patches & it was very faded. This spring when I was topping off my pool (from a hydrant) and I blew a hole in the liner (shallow end). As the level dropped it pulled the cover and a pail of paver sand (that was holding the cover) into the deep end creating a hold. The pool was completely empty. I got a 5 quotes and the most of the quotes were within 10% of the highest quote,one was 17.5% lower than the highest. They were low because I was referred to them by the owners close friend.

    Since these photos were taken I installed dark blue returns w/ flanges and skimmer faceplate covers (made by Custom Molded Products). They really make the returns and skimmers blend in. I have a dark blue drain cover on order.

    The liner is called Sebastian Beach Tile with Port Royal Bottom by Merlin

    Here what it looked like before the liner was removed:
