    Termites and Vinyl Swimming Pool Liners

    By Debbie
    Can termites cause damage to a vinyl liner in a swimming pool? It doesn't happen very often, but yes termites can eat through a swimming pool liner. We assume that they gravitate toward the dampness in the ground. Termites can create small pin-like holes in the swimming pool liner, usually starting just above the waterline on your in-ground swimming pool, on an above-ground pool the damage usually starts in the cove area. If your swimming pool liner has suspected termite damage, you can try pulling the vinyl swimming pool liner away from the pool wall to see if you can see any noticeable termite trails or tunnels.

    Tips for selling your home when you have a pool or a spa

    By Roxanne
    I have asked real estate agents that I have met in the past about the value of a pool with a house. I generally get the same answer. You will not get all your money back on a pool. But recently I have been watching a show on HGTV called Bang for your Buck. This show focuses on 3 houses in the same area with the same budget and the same type of renovation. In every episode, they get less than what they spent on the renovation. That being said, you will get some money back for what you spent on your pool and landscaping.

    Above Ground Pool Liner Installation

    By Scott
    First complete the steps for your pool kit assembly up to the liner installation step. You may need to install some of the top rails for stability of the pool wall, especially on a windy day. Next use the plastic coping strips to hold the overlap liner in place. The JBD liner has the plastic coping strip made into the liner so you will skip the next step of these instructions for a JBD liner.  Use this link for the UBD liner instructions.

    What Do I Do Now That My Pool is Closed

    By Scott
    Now that your pool is closed for the winter here is a list of do's and don’ts that will help make spring opening quick and easy. Do pump excessive water off the winter cover. Excessive water on the cover can cause damage to the cover or can cause the cover to fall into the pool. Don't pump off all the water. Leave 1-3 inches of water on the cover to protect the cover from wind damage. Do check the pool water level. Excessive rain can affect the pool level. Draining water from the cover can also drain water from the pool. Don't leave leaves on the cover. Use a deep leaf net to remove leaves from the cover. Don't move sheets of ice. Shifting ice can damage your pool liner. If the pool is properly winterized it will not be damaged from frozen water in the pool. Do check pool chemicals early spring. Maintaining proper chlorine and algaecide levels will help keep your water crystal clear especially in warmer climates.
