Your Commercial Pool is Leaking: What Next?

We get a lot of questions from owner/operators of commercial pools. One of the most common is in regards to the extent of the necessary repair, “I know I have leaks in my pool, how large of a renovation do I need?”

Every project is different, but the short answer is it depends on both the state of your pool and 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 membranes encapsulate the entire pool vessel in a layer that seals leaks and covers 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 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.

 

Our PVC membrane is custom-textured for slip-resistance and 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.

If you know that your pool has seen better days but aren't sure what direction to go, contacting a qualified aquatic professional is the first step. At RenoSys we have almost thirty full years leading the aquatic industry and are happy to answer any questions. You can also request a free brochure and sample of our PVC pool liner.
