Swimming Pool : I’m getting a new liner. Very suddenly. What color do you like and why?
Ashley: I’m getting a new liner. Very suddenly. What color do you like and why? (Maybe how it hides dirt or how it lasts over time/fading, etc) I would love to see photos.
Linda: We got a new one a couple years ago. Amazing the difference it makes. I picked a darker one. When the sun is shining on it, so pretty.
ashley: Looks great! That’s the color I’m Leaning toward. I’m thinking it might also heat up the water a little more than a light color bottom would.
linda: I know it’s beautiful. I have a side by side showing the before. The difference is amazing.
ashley: Wow that’s only a few years? That is crazy! I actually think I like the light blue but I feel like I should go with dark so it takes longer to fade to white
linda: ashley, the light is the old liner. It was here when we moved in. Had a few patches and a corner was pulled out so we had a new one put in.
ashley: Oh haha. That’s not bad at all. Ours it basically white now.
linda: Also though you can’t tell in the picture. The dark one, when the sun is reflecting off of the little bit of white, it glistens. Like diamonds. It’s so pretty.
ashley: Sounds like it! I can’t wait to get mine done!
linda: It was exciting. And darn those guys worked hard lol. I watched from the porch with a drink in my hand.
ashley: linda, that sounds perfect! im just hoping it gets done before our staycation in july.
linda: I want to say the whole process took about a week. Two days to drain, then they took out old, put in new and started filling. Big huge vacuum/ fan type things were sucking air out of sides while filling. When it was about half, they came and cut in skimmer and the eyeballs. Took two days to refill completely.
ashley: ok thanks. plus some time for them to make it and schedule the appointment. eh. hey, since you went through this recently do you know what 28/20 mil means? i get that 28 mil is thicker than 20 mil but does the slash mean that the bottom is different than the sides or something?
linda: Yes. The company we dealt with required me to sign a contract and put half down. That’s when it was ordered. I want to say it was in within a week or two but that’s probably more due to season. I’m sure at different times you’ll wait longer. We got the 28 mil. I don’t know what the slash means. The one I chose was on clearance so I got the 28 mil for the same cost as the 20 mil would have been.
Ashley: that sounds perfect! they should just post prices on the website and make it nice an easy to compare.
jim: Should’ve posted this one first.
ashley: the water changed the color a bit. love it.
leo: I went dark last year. Love it.
Seidy: We still in the process of putting our pool up. And this is the liner we got.
leah: Thanks, I feel like we’ve looked at a million pools in the last few days and asking a thousand questions lo.
