What does it Cost to Replace your Pool Liner?

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.
Pool Liner Installation Along with the actual cost of the pool liner, you must consider the installation cost. Some may try install the liner themselves, which can be a quite a task. However, if you hire a professional, the size, shape, material and equipment needed will all factor into the cost. Installation of an aboveground liner usually runs from about $500 to $1,500, depending on the size of the pool and the condition of the pool and pool floor. For an inground pool, you can expect to pay $1,500 to $2,500 for liner installation. This will depend on the size, shape, condition and any prep work needing done before installation. Working with a local pool shop may allow you to get a better price on installation than working with a larger shop. However, you should always get an estimate from somebody you trust before you commit to the liner and the installation.
