pool water

A high-quality above ground pool from Valley Pool & Spa should last between 10 and 20 years depending on how well you care for it. However, your pool liner will not last as long as your pool. Contact a pool expert at our store to see if you need a new liner before you decide to replace your entire pool. Here are some signs that you need a new above ground pool:

Your Pool is More than 10 Years Old – If your pool is 10 years old or older and you are having problems with it, it could be time to look for a replacement. You may need to replace the liner more than once over the lifespan of your pool, however, so make sure these issues do not extend beyond the liner first.

The Pool is Leaking – Everything designed to hold water will eventually leak, so you shouldn’t be concerned when it happens for the first time. Usually, you just need above ground pool repair in Pittsburgh, PA. However, if the leaking is severe and replacing your liner fails to fix the problem, you may need a new pool. If you find yourself refilling the pool too often, this can be a sign of a severe leak.

The Pool Wall is Rusty – Rust can form on the pool wall underneath the liner. Usually, this is not a huge deal, as you can easily sand it down and paint over it with a rust inhibitor. However, when the rust is severe, it is time for a replacement.

Repair or Replace? – Depending on the condition of your pool, you may need to either repair or replace it. Call Valley Pool & Spa at one of our six locations in the Pittsburgh area to have an expert assess your pool.
