I am not at all sure, but I would say they look very similar to yours, and the fact that there is no rust with all that water makes me think so as well!They wet hung it which is really good. Yes all that algae is normal. Our liner was that faded as well so we picked the one that the installer told us lasts the longest. Our liner has a blue base with a print on it so it’s blue though out. As apposed to a white base with a blue print on it. In theory if it fades it should just become solid blue. Also are you sure your walls are steel? Mine is a polymer of some sort. Here is a picture of mine when we had it replaced in January 2020.
Okay, it is nice to see someone else had all that algae, LOL. It was horrifying! I had just been watching youtube videos and people pulled liners out and it didn't look near as bad under there...
That's interesting about the liner fade, I wasn't aware! I didn't really mind the white, actually, it was just annoying when my iron staining got out of control, and of course any spec of dirt... but when the water had the iron in suspension and it was clean, it was very very blue water.
Oh, yeah, you guys are certainly right. It looks so much better. It kind of sucked having a pool that was so...ugly. LOL. The liner had stains all over that I gave up on, the coping was all faded, and the steps are dirty.. Just painting the coping already made a big difference, and now the liner. We are hoping to scrub up the steps as the final step, but refinishing them wasn't in the budget - did you do it yourself as well @milesvdustin ? How was the process?
