Fitting the swimming pool liner

When the floor screed has hardened, next comes the fitting of the special vinyl swimming pool liner, which is the decorative finish and water-retaining membrane of the pool shell. The pool has to be thoroughly swept and vacuumed before fitting the liner as any debris left behind will, at best, show through and look unsightly or, at worse, damage or even puncture the liner. The special linerlock track is secured around the top of the pool wall and sealed with a cement fillet. A bead welded to the rim of the liner fits into and locks into the mouth of the linerlock track, holding it in place.

When the liner is fitted, an industrial vacuum cleaner is used to suck it back against the pool shell and minimise the chance of any wrinkles appearing. In our experience, fitting the liner is the part of the process which the majority of self-builders feel the least confident about carrying out themselves. If this is the case, we are very happy to quote you for coming out to your home and completing this part of the process for you.
