The Pros and Cons of Vinyl Liner Pool Walls

Having a pool on your property can be a great way to boost the resale value of your home. It can also give your family hours of entertainment and exercise. When you get a pool, you want to make sure that the one you choose to install will be the right fit for you and your family. For starters, you need to determine whether you want to have fiberglass, concrete, or vinyl liner pools installed. If you’re thinking about getting a vinyl liner pool wall, consider the following pros and cons to help you make your decision:


When compared to other types of pools that you can install, vinyl liner pool walls have a lower initial cost. If you’re figuring out how you’re going to cover the costs to build the pool, you can save some money up front by choosing a vinyl liner pool.

You can also have them customized to fit the space on your property. Fiberglass pools tend to come in certain shapes that you have to dig out and place them in, but vinyl liner pools allow more flexibility with the shape and size. No matter the length, width, and depth that you want for your pool, you can get a vinyl liner to fill it for you.

The liner is a nonporous material, so you won’t have to worry about algae growing along the sides. Your vinyl liner will stay cleaner without allowing things to grow in your pool.

One of the biggest things that people enjoy about vinyl liner pools is that they are smooth. Fiberglass and some cement pools can be abrasive to your skin and snag your swimsuit. You won’t have to worry about this with your vinyl liner.


Although the initial costs are low, you should plan to replace the liner every 7-15 years. Depending on the liner that you have, this can cost you $2,500 to $3,500 each time. This can affect the resale value of your home. If potential buyers see that you have a liner, they’re going to want to know how old the liner is and when they would have to replace it.
