What Should You Do If Your Pool Leaks?


We get questions all the time from owner/operators of commercial pools. One question that is important to owner/operators is the extent of the necessary repair. That question might be: “I know I have leaks in my pool, how much of a renovation do I need?”


This is both a short and a long answer. The short answer is it depends on both the state of your pool as well as how happy you are with its design. If the pool serves your guests and you need a watertight interior, there's a relatively simple solution. On the other hand, if your pool has leaks in both the vessel and the gutter and you've decided it's time for a major new direction, that would be a much more extensive renovation.



We'll look at the “simple” renovation: the 60 mil PVC pool liner. This is ideal for almost every pool vessel and is a great option for aging pools that face leaks the older they get. Commercial-grade PVC liners encapsulate the entire pool vessel in a layer of thick PVC and seal leaks, covering gaps, cracks, chips, and holes. The PVC liner has special applications for metallic pools. These pools, which include aluminum and other metallic vessels, tend to have problems with a very specific type of corrosion. Over time, the water and swimmers themselves create a weak electrical charge which damages the pool vessel. PVC is an ideal insulator; so installing a commercial PVC pool liner to repair a corroded metallic pool vessel is an excellent solution as well as prevention of future corrosion.


The PVC membrane that we use is 60 mil thick and custom-textured as well as pore free for easy maintenance. One other factor that owner/operators appreciate is swimmers almost always prefer a PVC liner to conventional pool surfaces. The PVC liner is a consistent surface that won't scrape or scratch skin the way uneven concrete can. We also formulate our PVC membrane to resist both common organic growth (like fungus and algae) as well as to prevent fading. Our PVC pool shells are chlorine-resistant, too making them long lasting in the pool environment. Another popular option we're seeing more of is custom logos – clients choose to have their exact logo replicated in PVC and installed on the pool floor.
