If you hope to be swimming by memorial day, your best chance is by beginning your preparations in March and getting on our list as early as possible.
We'd be happy to talk with you in February!
We begin working as soon as the weather cooperates. Unfortunately, weather doesn't always cooperate.
Weather does cause delays, but we do our best to accommodate all our customers.
We need a day with no rain, no heavy wind, and over 55º.
Service dates are given on a first come, first served basis.
Make sure the pool is completely empty before we arrive.
A puddle in the bottom is fine. Several inches of water and wet leaves is not fine and will result in delays and extra cost.
Tip: Once you've pumped the out as much water as you can, it's safe to get in and slice or puncture the bottom of the old liner in several spots. This will allow the remaining water to seep into the ground below and will allow stray leaves to dry out.
First and most obviously, make sure you actually have the liner. If your dealer needs to special order the lilner, delays can happen.
Secondly, make sure we'll have access to the lilner and all needed materials – not locked in a garage or shed.
We can't guarantee an old skimmer. Using an old skimmer when putting in a new liner would just be a BAD idea.
When you get your new liner, get a new skimmer along with it to avoid trouble.
Once the liner is installed, you'll want to fill it in stages to get the best result. Filling the pool too soon or too fast could damage the liner.
Immediately after installation, fill the pool with 12-18" of water, then stop.
Let the liner stretch into place for 24-72 hours. Warmer weather and sunlight will make the liner more pliable and will allow you to proceed sooner. Lower temperatures and overcast weather means you should give it a little more time.
Schedule water delivery trucks to fill the pool after the 24-72 hour waiting/stretching period.
Wait 24-72 hours.
Thanks for taking the time to learn what to expect from your liner replacement!
