ELIMINATE ALMOST ALL POOL LINER COLOR FADING!
PREVENT POOL LINER COLOR FADING
Before you buy your next pool liner you may want consider upgrading to a Drinkable Pool Water System!!!
Pool liners look gorgeous the day after installation. But two years later the color of the pool liner below the water line has started to fade. Three years after that the liner is often so faded it is almost white. This is the biggest frustration we hear from vinyl pool owners. Fortunately, there is a solution. When you have a Drinkable Pool Water System installed on your swimming pool at the time you replace your pool liner you will eliminate almost all color fading of the pool liner over the years. This is because you will no longer be putting the chemicals in the water which are responsible for the color fading in the first place.
From 2006 to 2011 Lazy Day Pool and Spa, Inc conducted a five year study on pool liner color fading. This study compared 10 pool liners installed in 2006 in pools equipped with salt systems with 10 pool liners installed in 2006 in pools equipped with drinkable pool water systems. They went back to those pools five years later (in 2011) and documented the amount of color fading below the water line on all 20 pools. The results were amazing.
- The pools with salt systems all showed a minimum of 50% color fade below the water line as compared to the color fade above the waterline which showed little or no color fading.
- The pools with drinkable pool water systems all showed no observable color variation below the water line as compared to the color fade above the waterline which showed little or no color fading.
- The step cut out vinyl for three of the pools with drinkable pool water systems were still available and the this virgin vinyl was compared to the vinyl liner itself and no color variations between the step cut out vinyl and the actual pool liner were observed. The pool liner looked “Brand New”.
- No loss of elasticity was found in the vinyl liners exposed to drinkable pool water for five years.
- Significant loss of elasticity was found in the vinyl liners exposed to salt water and chlorine for five years.
It is important to note that this was not a scientific study but common sense would seem to suggest that the findings of this study match up perfectly with common sense assumptions. Chlorine destroys everything it touches…and vinyl pool liners are no exception to this rule.
