Vinyl Liner Replacements

Inground Swimming Pools

Replacing Your Vinyl Liner?

Are you delaying replacing your swimming pool liner because you're concerned about the cost? Don't worry, replacing a vinyl pool liner doesn't have to break the bank! Different variables such as material, size, features, and thickness of the liner will all affect the overall cost, but it's still more affordable than you think.

At Penguin Pools, we are not only Southeastern Wisconsin's leading inground swimming pool contractor – but we also specialize in replacing and renovating vinyl liner swimming pools. Installing a new inground vinyl liner can give your pool an entirely new feel in no time.

Our Process

All inground vinyl liners are custom made to fit your pool, we don’t use "off the shelf" liners.  The average vinyl liner replacement process takes 3-4 weeks from the time we measure to the time you have a new one installed.

  • Complete liner measuring of your pool.
  • Send measurements to the designer.
  • Designer creates layout and sends to processing (3-days).
  • Liner is made, cut, and sent to shipping (3-days).
  • Liner is shipped to our wearhouse (6-days).
  • Penguin Pools comes to install your new liner (1 day).
  • Pool water is drained out.
  • Old pool liner is cut out and removed.
  • Bottom of Swimming Pool is patched if needed.
    One bag of patch to repair the bottom of your vinyl liner swimming pool is included. This could be vermiculite, sand, or concrete depending on what your pool bottom is made of.
  • New Ultra-Seam™ vinyl liner is installed and water added.
    Stop looking at ugly seams in your liner, Ultra-Seam has seams that are virtually invisible
  • Ultra-Seam™ Technology on all Vinyl Liner Inground Pools

    Pool liners are the real showstoppers in every vinyl liner pool. Not only do they add to the beauty and attract everyone's gaze, but they also serve as a container for thousands of gallons of pool water.

    Beyond their practical purpose, a vinyl pool liner can drastically change the entire appearance and atmosphere of your pool. Pick a color or pattern that suits your individual style and your swimming pool can become the centerpiece of your ultimate backyard oasis. Replacing your pool liner opens up even more possibilities to express yourself through design.

    Is the standard package enough?

    In most cases our standard package will be more than enough to repair and renovate vinyl liner pools. However, vinyl liner pools that are in particularly bad shape may require more than 1 bag of Vermiculite to repair the bottom. Penguin Pools can handle and upgrade items within your pool (lights, plumbing, clogged filters) or any other swimming pool services in addition to the liner replacement.
