Thread: Plastimayd (Latham) or Pegasus liner

    Question Plastimayd (Latham) or Pegasus liner

    Liner replacement time. I can get either brand installed for the same price and in Plastimayd I can get 27/27 mil at no extra charge when choosing a "SuperMax" pattern. You hear that the floor doesn't need to be thick but most of the wear & tear of cleaning is pushing against the floor with the vacuum brush head. Pool has 8' diving end - water pressure greatest on the bottom, right?

    Pegasus sales material is all over their "inhibitors added for mildew, mold and algae prevention". Plastimayd says nothing at all about this.

    Plastimayd feature is supposed to be invisible seams. Pegasus talks about visible seams.

    Plastimayd states clearly a 5 year full + 15 year pro-rated warranty. Can't find any warranty statement on the Pegasus website.

    Decisions, decisions... leaning toward Plastimayd. Anyone wish they hadn't? Anyone had a warranty claim against either and survived?

    Re: Plastimayd (Latham) or Pegasus liner

    I got a plastimayd about 1 1/2 years ago.

    One thing I will say, they have been making liners since the 60's.

    I can't recall if the one I got was supposed to be seamless, but
    I can definitely see the seams if there's any dirt in the pool (during
    filtering, dirt gets in the seams, showing them. And I can definitely
    see them when swimming under with a mask on.

    The consensus of this forum is that the mil thickness doesn't matter
    in the long run. Anything that punctures a thinner mil would surely
    puncture the thicker one.

    This brand has a factory about 12 miles away plus the only
    pool co in town that I trust is a distributor, so that's why i went with them.
