Inground Pool Liner Replacements

Replacing an inground pool liner is a major project that vinyl pool owners must go through every 10-14 years as their pool liner reaches the end of its life cycle. Constant sun exposure, chemical degradation and normal wear and tear on old vinyl all contribute to requiring an inground pool liner replacement.

These projects don't need to be a major headache and can actually be completed from start to finish in as little as three weeks, with as little as 2 business days of down-time. GBI Pool Services Inc. are the Ottawa area vinyl replacement experts. By streamlining the liner installation process, we are able to quickly and efficiently get your pool liner replaced.

GBI Pool Services Inc. uses multiple liner manufacturing companies including Latham, and Poolwerx to match each customers unique requirements. All of our liners include the respective manufacturers pro-rated warranty, while our labour comes with a 1-year workmanship warranty.

What to Expect

A typical inground pool liner replacement usually takes between 3-6 weeks from start to finish depending on the time of year, and assuming there are no major issues with the structure of the pool or the water table.
