Pool liner


Humph

Recommended Posts

I can understand the need for pliability and being easier to fit. I couldn't get my head around the temperature requirements as that implies that pool installers only work for 4 months of the year. As the pool is part of a holiday rental property it would mean that no pool available. What sort of timescale to replace the liner?

Not sure what region you are in Humph but it usually gets to 18-20 degrees at some point during the day for 7-8 months of the year and it should not take too long to fit the liner. A bit longer to fill the pool but the temprature doesn't matter at that point. It is only the first inch of water that needs to warm up so you can remove the creases. A vacuum cleaner does the rest.

As Chrish says they can fit liners all year round.

Our 13 year old Jean Desjoyaux pool will need a new liner soon.

We were not very impressed with the company's after sales service and fell out with them a few years ago.

Can anyone tell me whether any reputable pool company would be able to replace the liner or is it a specialist Jean Desjoyaux job?

Would also like to be prepared for the approximate cost - 6m x 3m pool. I realise that there are probably different qualities of liner so the cost could vary quite a bit - max and min would be good.

oh, and is it an easy job to repaint the fibreglass(?) step area which seems to have rusty spots in it?

Your liner can only be offered after the pool has been measured. Desjoyaux pools appart from other horrors are often free form with a continuous curved bottom which is another storey compared to the much easier rectangle with a flat bottom. So the liner price could vary more than 50% even with the same weight material. Best get in contact so that more information can be gained and advice offered.

Yes fiberglass can be resprayed but it depends on why there is 'rust stains'.

For the original poster, I concur with all that Teapot and chris says and can add that the temperature needs to be over 15°c for a substantial part of the day to make it happen, otherwise its a non starter. The season has nearly finished here on the west coast and will not start again untill at least April. It take 2 -3 weeks to get a liner made and a day to install if everything goes well.

Contact me if you need further help.

My liner has a bulge, I think there is a foam sheet behind it, and in a storm, water got in behind, and created this bulge. I've waited an age for the insurance to even send an "expert", but wondered if it can be sorted, or a liner replacment, do you pump the water into a bowser or flexible tank, dump it and refil anew, or ????? Just curious as it's going to have to happen!

the same thing happend to one of our customers in all the rain (end Jan) but his liner sank back down and apart from some tiny creases by the returns you dont know its happend. His cover motor flooded out as well but the installers replaced that and fitted a drain in the motor housing (below ground).

Sadly don't think I'm that lucky, it appears the foam has rolled up behind the liner, and refilling the pool squeezed the water out, but left the foam rolled up. The first engineer said "part drain, pull down the liner, pull up the foam, and re-install. Insurance said, "650 euros??!! we'll send an expert", three years later, still waiting! (and many many many phone calls and e mails!!)

This makes me think of how the UK insurers managed the deluge of claims after the 1987 storm, they reacted rapidly and gave the OK to all roof repair claims under a certain limit or the Australian ones after the 1999 Sidney hailstorm which shattered every front and rear car windscreen and resulted in an 18 month production delay for new ones when they just paid out on all the vehicles as economic write offs.

Then I ask myself what French insurers would do in the same circumstances [Www]

I saw on the Tv last night that a claim against a sports medecine cabinet that had caused lifelong incapacity to (I think) over 20 patients through giving injections etc without sterilising the equipment has finally got to court after 20 years.
