What Factors Affect The Cost Of Swimming Pool Liner Replacement?
There are two main factors that influence the cost of pool liner replacement:
- Pool Surface Area
- Pool Type (Above or Inground)
The larger the pool and the greater the surface area, the more expensive liner replacement will be. This is because more liner material is required and it will take longer to install.
Above ground pool liner replacement tends to be much cheaper than for inground pools. It is much easier to access, remove and refit a liner to an above ground pool, so the labour costs are much lower here.
