Having an inground pool in your backyard can be relaxing and fun for the entire family, especially when the temperatures sizzle like they have this season. However, pools come with their own maintenance issues. If you're a new homeowner, be aware that some pool contractors are less than honest, especially when dealing with inexperienced pool owners. The local CBS news station in Philadelphia recently reported a case of a New Jersey man conned an area homeowner out of a $575 deposit she'd given him to have her pool liner changed. Like other types of contractors, not everyone who comes knocking on your door looking for your business is honest and dependable.
Changing your inground pool liners is something you need to have done every 10 years or so. You’ll generally know when it’s time. Old liners start to fade and become dull and brittle. Eventually they will crack and tear, causing your pool to leak.
Changing the liner in your inground pool is generally not a do-it-yourself project. Unless you have pool maintenance experience, you’ll need to find a reliable contractor.
