    inground pool liner

    Hi,
    I have and inground pool that is 16 years old. It has the original liner and it is faded and Very wrinkled. A company told me that the previous owner must have not kept the PH correct. Should I have it replaced? It cost about $3,200 to replace it. How long will a new liner last? Thanks for your help!

    Re: inground pool liner

    Hi mnvanci, and welcome! You've come to the right place for great pool advice!

    I am not one of "the experts" but I can make a few comments that might be helpful. If the liner is still functioning properly (holding water, no holes) you probably needn't rush to replace it. It sounds to me like the problems are more cosmetic in nature.

    Others may have different opinions. Pay attention to those who DO have experience with liner pools! My comments are based on what I've read here, not personal experience.

    Re: the longevity of a liner, any sort of pool finish (liner, paint, plaster, pebblesheen, etc.) can be made to last far longer than spec with meticulous maintenance. Likewise, any pool finish can be destroyed in a matter of months by poor maintenance!

    Good luck, and again, welcome!

    I agree, if the cosmetic issues don't bother you, and it's holding water fine, then I wouldn't rush to replace it.

    my liner is 19 years old, its faded some in the corners, and has some wrinkles. But other than that it works fine. I just be careful when vacuuming, try not to whack the wrinkles too hard.

    Mine is 26 years old. No wrinkles, but it is faded. The PB was here earlier this week and said that it looked really good. He advised me not to bother replacing it until it leaks or something else goes wrong.
