Ah yes…..Spring time…that most glorious season of year. The days are getting longer, the sun is getting warmer, and the promise of something special is just around the corner…..or over the hill…..or down the lane; I’m not sure, but I know it’s out there somewhere. Often times; however, that ‘something’ isn’t so special. It’s lying there underneath the winter snow just waiting to be dealt with once all is melted and exposed, and it’s going to require some sort of commitment on your part. If you happen to be a pool owner, and by virtue of the fact that you’re reading this, you likely are, then that not so special something could be a swimming pool in need of a little TLC. Maybe that beautiful liner of yesteryear has become more faded than your old pair of jeans. Maybe it has more patches than a gaggle of one-eyed pirates. Maybe the thought of having to deal with the entire pool liner replacement has you shaking in your sorrels. Either way, if your once blue liner has you singing the blues, it may time to stop running so you can get back to swimming.
Assuming that you are not considering a large scale renovation on your pool and pool area, the pool liner replacement is a relatively straight forward process. Even if some unforeseen additional work may come up (floor repair, groundwater issues, faulty circulation system), this is a job that should rarely take longer than one week to complete. So if you are postponing this work because you don’t want to have your back yard under construction all summer, fear not, the job is not that complicated, and should be over by the time you finish binge watching a few seasons of your favourite TV series.
The first and most important step is to deal with a reputable swimming pool company. This ensures the job is done well and completed in a timely manner. Aqua-Tech continues to renovate more swimming pools than any pool company in the city. We have the knowledge and the staff to ensure that you are completely satisfied while the liner is being replaced, and once the job is finished.
The next step is to make sure that you, the homeowner, have been made aware of all the additional work or unknown scenarios that may arise once the renovation has begun. You should know what is involved in rectifying the situations, what are your options at that time, and the associated costs to take care of them. If a pool company is telling you “this probably won’t happen” or “we’ll deal with this if it happens”, they are not being realistic or upfront with you. Aqua-Tech will explain to you, not only the scope and cost of the liner replacement itself, but also all the different items that may arise in the pool liner replacement.
The third step is to be 100% sure there is no other pool renovation work you want done at this time. If you are contemplating anything like adding or upgrading a pool light, adding walk-in steps, or changing your coping/concrete, now is the time to do it. Although this is ultimately the decision of the homeowner, any responsible pool company would and should mention these items during the sales process, as the time to do this kind of renovation is when the liner is being replaced. Aqua-Tech will always offer the best advice for the long term benefit of both the pool and the pool owner.
So there you have it; pool liner replacement made easy. Couldn’t I have written a shorter blog you ask? Sure. How about: call Aqua-Tech, watch snow melt, enjoy new pool liner!
