Pool Liners - What do they do? & Should I have one?


A pool liner is a specialized material that lines the interior surface of a swimming pool. It has several essential purposes; 

  1. Water Retention: The primary function of a pool liner is to hold the water within the pool, preventing leaks. This is crucial for maintaining the water level and ensuring the pool remains usable. 


  1. Structural Protection: Liners protect the pool's underlying structure by creating a barrier between the water and the pool’s structural materials (such as concrete, fiberglass, metal, etc.) preventing potential water damage and chemical exposure which can cause deterioration over time. 


  1. Aesthetics: Liners come in various colours, patterns, and designs, enhancing the visual appeal of the pool. This allows pool owners to customise the look of their pool to match their preferences and landscape design. 


  1. Surface Comfort: Liners provide a smooth and comfortable surface for swimmers, reducing the risk of abrasions or injuries that might occur with rougher surfaces.  


  1. Ease of Maintenance: Pool liners can simplify maintenance by providing a uniform, non-porous surface that resists algae and is easier to clean compared to bare pool surfaces. This helps in keeping the pool hygienic and reducing the need for frequent cleaning and chemical treatments. 


In summary, a pool liner can not only transform the look of your pool but is a vital component for functionality, durability, and enjoyment.
