What causes Vinyl Pool Liners to Tear?

Tearing many times occurs when the liner is punctured by a sharp object. Try to avoid these problems from occurring.








Prevent liner tears.

Prevent liner tears caused by your pool ladder before they happen and avoid going the DIY way to repair your pool liner. Aside from the cost of the pool liner patch, there are risks and associated costs if a patching installation fails – which could lead to a void in your liner warranty.

Holes, tears, and snags.

Pool liner repairs for minor patching cost between $245 to $450, depending on the severity of the tear, labor, and water costs. It is highly recommended that the repair is serviced by an authorized service provider to maintain your pool liners warranty. A good rule of thumb with tears in a liner is if it is less than 6 inches, then it may be repairable. If the tear is longer than 6 inches, then the entire liner would need to be replaced.

Honey, I shrunk the pool liner!

After several years your liner can lose its elasticity, causing it to be more susceptible to tearing. Accelerators of this loss of elasticity include improper water balance and sun damage. Sun damage can be tough to avoid, but many times improper water balance and poor pool maintenance could have been avoided, increasing the longevity of your liner.

If your vinyl liner is several years or older, we do not recommend draining it. Due to shrinkage, it is very difficult for a liner that has lost it’s elasticity to be drained and refilled with success.
