Vinyl Swimming Pools by Pinnacle Pools & Spas
A vinyl liner pool has a custom–made sheet of vinyl cut to specified dimensions and fastened between the water and the underlying pool structure. The top edge of this vinyl sheet locks into a track on the bottom edge of the deck-level coping or edging. Beneath the liner, the pool floor is made of packed sand or a cement–like material and is formed to match the shape of the liner.
The pool walls, typically 3 ft by 8 ft panels made of galvanized steel or thermoplastic, are supported from behind so they won’t bow out due to the water pressure. All of the wall panels are then secured together to form the swimming pool’s perimeter.
Pros and Cons
Let‘s take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of owning a vinyl pool.
Vinyl pools have the primary benefit of being able to be installed quickly. With fewer steps in the setup process, vinyl pool installation can take much less time compared to traditional inground pool types.
Virtually any shape of a vinyl pool can be accommodated by modern manufacturing techniques that create a vinyl liner. Your shape & size options are virtually endless when building a vinyl liner pool.
Easy To Clean
A major advantage of a vinyl pool is its smooth gel coat surface, which makes pool maintenance easier. This surface is non–porous and resists algae growth better than other materials.
Smooth To Touch
Sliding across a vinyl pool liner is incredibly satisfying due to its smooth texture – avoiding the scrapes and bruises that happen on occasion with gunite pools.
