Let's eliminate the fluff of this article and just get after it. Here are the straightforward Pros and Cons of Vinyl Lined Pools

PROS

1: Least expensive option for in-ground pools typically around $30k for a small pool.

2: Limitless shapes. If you can dream it it can be built.

3: Installation completion within 3-4 weeks

4: Leaks can typically be patched with underwater patches. The hard part is finding it!




CONS

1: Has a vinyl liner, which will leak. It's not if, it's when.

2: Liner leaks are not covered by the manufacturer unless it is a seam failure. Then the coverage is prorated and does not cover the loss of water and chemicals. Seam failure is not very common.

3: Galvanized panels rust over time.

4: Saltwater pools eat way at steel panels of vinyl pools

5: Hundreds of pieces of the pool to potentially fail

6: Traditional vinyl lined pool coping does not look appealing.

7: Built-in white plastic steps are not appealing and are potential leak point

8: Liner over steps are definite leak points as the liner wears out prematurely because of foot traffic

9: Has a higher long term cost of ownership than most anticipate.

10: Needs line to be replaced every 5-10 years at a cost of approximately $7,000.00
