The pool liner is a very important part of your swimming pool. If it's not in good shape, it could cause all types of issues. When it comes time to replace the liner, it's important to understand how much this will cost. The cost of your pool liner replacement actually includes two costs: The price of the actual liner and the installation cost. The cost will depend on many factors including the size of the pool, the thickness of the liner, what type of pool you have and the pattern. Here's a breakdown of the factors.
- Size - Obviously, the larger the pool is, the more expensive the liner will be.
- Thickness - Liners come with a thickness measured in mils. A 20 mil thickness is standard, but you can get a 25 or 30 mil thickness or some liners.
- Pattern - If you prefer a darker pattern, you can expect to pay more. The darker pattern requires more ink for production. A plain blue liner with no pattern will always be the cheapest option.
- Aboveground or Inground - Aboveground pool liners usually range from $100 to $500 based on the size, depth, pattern and thickness. If you need an inground pool liner, expect to spend $500 to $1,500 depending on the size, depth, pattern and thickness chosen.
