Ottawa Pool Liner Installation & Replacement

Vinyl swimming pool liners can be a huge asset to both in-ground and above ground pool models. The goal of vinyl liners is to keep water in pools, to fight off mildew and make your swim space easier to clean. As liners age, they become brittle or, can crack and tear, paving the way for extensive damage and a large repair bill. Professional Ottawa pool liner installation and replacement services can help to remove degraded materials and provide a fresh start with high quality materials. 

Pool liner replacements aren’t fun but they are necessary. No one wants to replace liners before they need to. Whether you are replacing an existing liner or installing one in a new pool, installation is a complex process. An amateur approach to liner replacements or installs can drastically reduce the lifespan of your vinyl pool liner. When properly installed and maintained, liners can last 10-15 years but this number will shift greatly depending on how you treat your pool. Instead of struggling with a damaged liner, get the best results by calling a Puddle technician! 

Pool Liner Replacement: When & Why 

Over the course of the day, your pool is often left out to the elements. Pool products are built to be tough, but they are not invincible. Concrete pools can be acid washed when they begin to show signs of staining or wear but managing a liner means keeping an eye out for potential issues. Ignoring problem areas in your liner can mean the difference between a simple patch and a complete replacement. In order to catch these issues before they become a disaster, call an expert when you begin to notice any of the following signs: 

  • Tears or Cracks: As liners age, they can become brittle. Like any material, when vinyl becomes brittle, it is prone to cracking. If liners are relatively new or are in good shape overall, they can likely be patched if caught early enough. 
  • Liner Leaks: Cracking or tears can lead to leaks. If leaks are small they can be patched in order to extend lifespans by a few more years. If the tear is serious or is difficult to see, replacement might be the right option as a preventative measure. 
  • Stains & Discolouration: Liners are constantly exposed to harsh chemicals and UV rays, both of which lead to stains over time. It is important to keep an eye on fading colour to fully exposed areas and to monitor rust and algae. Staining does not necessarily impact the structural integrity of your pool but will cause a significant drop in curb appeal. Fading colour can be a sign that your liner is becoming brittle. When you choose to install a pool liner, it is best to explore your options. There is a large selection of inground pool liner options on the market, some of which are made with UV inhibitors, as well as stain resistant features. Choose your quality, colour, liner pattern and more, all while protecting your swim space. 
  • Loss of Shape: As liner’s age, they begin to lose their elasticity. Wrinkling, bumps and slippage are all signs that the liner is beginning to stretch. If liners are slipping it can lead to damaged tracks which are expensive to repair and even more expensive to replace. If neglected, deformed liners can allow water to seep down toward structures. 

Unlike some other materials, pool walls cannot be patched with duct tape! There are plenty of occasions to replace in-ground or above ground pool liners but only one way to get great results and that is with professional installation. 

Ottawa Pool Liner Replacement:  Why Choose Professional Care and Installation 

Whether you are outfitting a new pool structure with a vinyl liner or are replacing an aged or damaged one, professional pool liner installation is always your best option. It is easy to think that a replacement is a simple case of DIY but this process involves more than draining water, installing a liner and the additional step to fill the pool back up again. An amateur approach to vinyl liner installation can drastically reduce the lifespan of a liner. Liners need to be measured correctly to achieve the perfect fit. Stretching vinyl to fit opens the door to weakening and heightens the risk of tears. 

A DIY approach might seem like a more cost effective option, but professional liner installation is an investment in the prolonged lifespan of your swim space. Over time, expert care becomes more economical than having to enlist premature replacements. The Puddle team is highly trained, experienced and fully insured to guarantee great results, done safely.

We own a commercial property with an indoor pool and hot tub. We switched over pool maintenance companies about 6 months ago, from another company in Ottawa to Puddle Pools. We have been incredibly impressed with the service that we receive from both Zach and Richard. They have been incredibly responsive to all of our questions and are quick to take action whenever we encounter an issue, whether it is big or small. They also perform weekly routine maintenance on our pool and spa and they are always on time, courteous, professional and dependable. We are so happy to have found Puddle Pools and highly recommend them!

Called Puddle Pools Ottawa and consulted about changing out old for a new pool liner. Richard and Zachary answered all of my questions and earned my business. We couldn’t be happier so far! They did great and the pool looks amazing!

My experience with Puddle Pools was nothing short of spectacular, a true highlight in my homeownership journey. Initially, I was on the fence about who to trust with my pool liner replacement, especially given the tricky timing towards the end of fall last year. Yet, Puddle Pools stood out not just for their competitive quotes but for their unwavering commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. Zach, my point of contact, was a pivotal figure throughout this process. He epitomized professionalism and warmth, making what could have been a stressful endeavor feel like a walk in the park. His prompt responses and understanding nature underscored the company's customer-first ethos, making me feel valued and heard at every turn. The reasonability of their quotes was the first sign that I had struck gold with Puddle Pools. In a sector where costs can spiral, their straightforward and fair pricing was a welcome change. It’s refreshing to find a company that aligns its interests so closely with those of its clients, ensuring you get the best bang for your buck. The quality of their work speaks volumes, proving that they don't just meet expectations—they soar above them. Given the stellar outcome of the liner replacement, I didn't hesitate to entrust them with the installation of a pool safety cover. Once more, they exceeded my expectations, reinforcing my decision to look nowhere else for pool-related services. In summary, if you're in Ottawa and pondering over pool services, let me save you some time: Puddle Pools is the answer. Their blend of exemplary service, fair pricing, and superior work quality places them a cut above the rest. I'm beyond satisfied with their service and eagerly anticipate continuing this relationship for all my pool needs. A heartfelt thank you to Zach and the Puddle Pools team for a remarkable job well done!

Richard was the representative that came to close our family pool. Richard was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and had tremendous patience for every question I had. He responded with detailed responses and took the time to show me what he was explaining. Would strongly recommend this company for all your pool openings and closing! Have already asked to be placed on the list for the next fall closing.
