Each different pool surface requires the water to be chemically balanced according to its own set of very specific target values. Balancing the water to the correct levels in concrete vinyl lined pools is extremely important, as it prevents a number of surface issues arising. The most common problems associated with vinyl lined pools include:
• Resurfacing of vinyl lined pools can only be with another vinyl liner. These pools cannot be converted to any other surface due to their basic construction.
• Liner Deterioration in which the vinyl shell breaks down. The average life of a vinyl pool liner is approximately 10 years.
• Pool Cleaners used in vinyl pools must be specifically designed for such. Of the many automatic cleaners available, only select models are appropriate for vinyl surfaces.
• Sanitisation in vinyl pools may be either saltwater or chlorine, however, the correct chemical forms must be used to avoid surface deterioration.
