Just reading the instructions makes me nervous. 3M tape to attach to vinyl or silicone adhesive to attach to fiberglass/plaster. No way you could ever easily remove either of them without damage. Will they not fade or degrade in the life of my pebbletec ... is there a guarantee of that?

And if they are not fully sealed around the edge, I would think they would be breeding grounds for algae underneath.

I think they are similar to vinyl repair patches, those suckers stay on for years and robots don't move them at all.

They have a different model for shotcrete pools.

Maybe its me, but I love different stuff....I particularly love my RC Dual Outboard Skimmer Boat :cool:

Now it worked for me. They look nice but I'm kinda leaning towards what Jason said. Do you know anybody that has tried them ? 😎

It does look like for the vinyl install it is fully adhesive and not tape like I envisioned. So it could certainly stay in place for the life of the liner ... just hope it does not fade to a white sticker before then :D

But, using an adhesive on a plaster pool ... yikes. If it ever came off, you would still have adhesive smashed into the pores of the plaster that will never look right. I am just not sure would trust it for the life of plaster which can be significantly longer than a liner.

LOL...white sticker....in my area, say 150,000 population.....I did a business plan and there are over 8,000 pools. I know of only 3 that are concrete or vinyl. A few are fibreglass. I easily estimate that 95% of pools up north are vinyl.

That does not really surprise me as I would think the deep freeze cycles might be harder on the plaster pools.

I think you meant concrete or plaster.

I'll have to check those out. The ignorant previous owner of my pool dumped shock in it and didn't brush it, so I have some bleached out spots. Most people don't notice them, but they annoy me because I know they didn't have to be there. If these decals aren't too expensive, that would make my liner last longer for me mentally.
