Should I buy extended warranty coverage for my new in-ground pool vinyl liner?

NO! The chances are almost certain that you will never collect on an extended pool liner warranty. That’s why some companies love to sell them, they are pure profit for the manufacturer.

In a previous post we explained that your pool warranty covers the seams only. If a seam is going to fail, it will do so in the first six months, probably in the first week. In this case, the dealer almost always replaces the liner at no charge to you. As such, the standard warranty is sufficient to protect you.

Since all other problems that can happen with your in-ground pool liner are specifically excluded from the warranty, there is really nothing to buy extended coverage for.
