Replacement liners vs. New pool liners
Homeowners often ask if there is any difference between a replacement vinyl liner and a liner installed with new pool kits.
There is no difference between a liner that is made as a replacement and a liner that ships with a new pool. The materials and method of manufacturing are identical.
We make liners every day for both new and existing pools and we never ask the dealer if the order is for a new or existing pool.
As for the thickness of the material, you can order a 20 mil liner or a 27 mil liner for either a new or existing pool. Both are available; it just depends on the pattern or thickness you choose. For our comments on which material to choose, read further: Which liner thickness should you choose?
