Swimming pool liners were originally introduced as an interior finish for the low budget end of the market. The construction is of seam welded plastic sheeting. They can be printed with variety of mosaic patterns, tiled borders etc. But there is no getting away from the fact that they are essentially plastic bags. And as such are very susceptible to scratches and abrasion. In addition they also suffer from the migration of plasticisers from the vinyl, the process of which results in the vinyl becoming brittle, and that’s not all. If a liner type swimming pool is heated in excess of 30 degrees, there is a chance the colour / print could fade away.
The images below show how UK Swimming Pools LTD have converted an old defective liner pool suffering from years of frost and weather damage into a new unyielding interior finished pool.
The client opted for a glass mosaic tiled band at the water level and rendered and painted walls below. They could have increased the budget and opted for a Complete Mosaic Interior. They also opted to have a ‘Roman” styled stepped end complete with air injection for a spa pool effect.
Inlet ports are positioned where required and pipe work is plumbed to the filter room and connected to an air blower. This is activated by use of a remote control. You can see in the second to last image how the water is agitated. Air inlet ports can be built into any position, across steps, along a wall base and even around the floor. They give a great effect and are cheap to supply and fit.
