How do you measure performance? Normally you will measure and collect data and evaluate it. When it comes to your swimming pool, one of the most important decisions you’ll make is choosing the pool surface, but do you know how they all perform?
Unless you’ve owned a pool or even owned several pools with different pool interiors, it is hard to make a comparison because you cannot rely on your experience; you have to be guided by the experiences of others.
Often vinyl pool surfaces are linked with only above ground pools, but truth is, there are hundreds of thousands of pools all around the world with a vinyl pool surface. The reason is, it is one of the easiest pool surfaces to maintain and it remains flexible so it won’t crack and leak, like other cement based or hard pool surfaces.
Our changing climate here in Australia means the ground expands and contracts as the rain falls or we have extended dry periods. This means the soil around your swimming pool can shrink and move which can damage a pool with small cracks followed by leaks unless it has a flexible pool construction like a pre-engineered steel structure and a flexible pool surface that will keep your pool watertight. Think about your house, most houses show the signs of small cracks from movement over the years and your pool is no different. Using a commercial vinyl pool interior will keep you pool waterproof as it stretches and flexes to accommodate regular ground movement.
When it comes to looking after your skin, especially young children, a vinyl finish is smooth and soft on your skin yet textured for grip. No need to worry about rough edges of harsh abrasions, it is gentle on your skin even after hours in the pool water.
One of the most important parts of owning a pool is keep the water balanced and healthy for your family. Vinyl is an inert pool surface, meaning it does not affect the chemical balance unlike cement based pool surfaces such as tiled, concrete, pebble and quartzon. A commercial vinyl pool surfaces makes it easy to keep your pool in balance with the water crystal clear ready for swimming. So when looking for a new pool, or renovating an old pool, choose a pool interior that is flexible, soft to touch on your skin and easy to look after.
