Vinyl liner pools are the most cost-effective inground swimming pools. They are custom made and can be installed in a week’s time. Vinyl liner pools are favored by people across the country. Smooth texture and design flexibility are what makes them different from fiberglass and Gunite pools. However, a pool has one enemy, ground water! Ground water is the only force strong enough to move a liner which is housing thousands of gallons of water. The picture next to this box shows you what a floating liner looks like.
Fuggetta Contracting Corp. has perfected the solution to fixing a floating liner with a 100% success rate. We have a special way to reroute the ground water away from your pool, keeping your pool safe and sound during heavy rain falls. Our skilled professionals can come in and provide you with a free estimate to not only correct but eliminate your floating liner issues altogether!
Heavy rainfall – It is not your pool installer but mother nature who is the culprit. Heavy rainfall elevates the groundwater level. The elevated levels put more pressure on the inner lining which leads to floating liner. If the liner is afloat, you don’t need to get worried. At Fuggetta Pools, our representatives are ready to help you out with floating liner solutions.
Metal wall oxidization – Often vinyl liner pool structures are made with galvanized steel. Though strong, they are a precarious long-term option. The galvanized steel structure is underground and with time, it gets oxidized. They can also get damaged from the underground water, causing leaks and floating liner issues.
Liner hole – If the liner is not regularly cleaned and water PH level not maintained, it can lead to small fissures or holes in the liner. These holes can collect significant water in one or more areas of the liner. It is necessary to do regular pool liner repair.
Perched water – Perched water does not only cause a floating liner but also creates pool liner wrinkles, or shrinking of the liner. Perched water combined with heavy rainfall can cause the liners to float.
Water depth issue – While installing the pool liner or doing pool liner repair, we always emphasize that the pool should never be drained. Low water depth (during winter months) can decrease the pressure of water inside the liner and make the liner float.
Success of floating liner solutions depends on various things including the condition of the liner, age of the liner, amount of pool liner wrinkles, and several other factors. Even if the pool liner wrinkles are removed, they can return and liner can float. Old liners in neglected condition can tear in the reset process. Make sure you consider these facts before attempting to fix the liner float or replacing the liner altogether.
