Why Should You Choose a Pool with a
- Vinyl feels good!
Vinyl is very smooth and luxurious. It won't rough up
your feet or suit. No more scuffed up toes!
The interior of a vinyl lined pool is softer and smoother than
a plaster pool. The vinyl is not subject to scale formation
or etching that is commonly found in plaster. At Rustic Pools,
Inc., we install a layer of foam to the gunite walls to
serve as a buffer between the gunite and vinyl. Your hands and
feet will feel the difference and the satin smooth finish will
never cause scratches or snagged bathing suits either.
- Fewer chemicals, less frequent changes:
Vinyl is a smooth, non-porous material. Because it
is not porous, fewer chemicals are required and the water will
remain in balance longer. Fewer chemicals mean lower
- Less long-term maintenance: Under
normal conditions, a vinyl pool does not need to be drained,
acid-washed or re-painted during its lifespan.
- Choice of colors and patterns: Vinyl
liners come in a wide array of colors and patterns. (See
some of the choices available on the
Liner Patterns page.)
- Eventual liner replacement provides a brand new surface:
A vinyl liner will last about the same length of time as a plaster
surface. Instead of re-plastering over an old surface,
the old vinyl liner is removed and replaced with a brand new
one. The down time is only 1-2 days, and then your pool
is ready for water.
