What is the best time of year to replace my inground vinyl pool liner?
Pool owners in need of a replacement liner often wonder when the best time is to replace and install their new pool liner.
If you choose to replace your liner in the spring, the key is to pick your day carefully. It has to be warm outside, but the sun also has to be shining. It is the sun beating down on the vinyl on a warm day that loosens it up and allows the material to vacuum into place properly.
We used to suggest installing liners on a day no cooler than 60 degrees and sunny for 20 mil liners. Today, we suggest 70 degrees and sunny for 27 mil liners.
If you choose to change your liner in the fall, your pool will be ready to go on the first day of spring. This prevents any waiting in the spring to get on anyone else’s schedule or for the weather to break.
