Answers to some of our most Frequently Asked Questions about pool renovation and pool construction.
I have seen photos of PVC liners with lots of wrinkles. Does this happen often?
If a residential or low-grade PVC / vinyl liner is installed in a large pool, wrinkling and shifting are inevitable. The RenoSys PVC Pool Membrane is a heavy-duty liner designed for commercial pools. Our experienced crews install the system following procedures that are designed to prevent the membrane from shifting.
Are you open during the COVID–19 outbreak?
Yes. We have adopted special procedures to protect our staff and allow them to continue to work. We are not completely unaffected by travel and working restrictions, so there could be short delays getting to job sites or responding to requests.
How long have you been in business?
RenoSys began operations in 1988, incorporated in 1990 and enjoys the longest North American track record in the commercial pool renovation industry.
How many pools have you installed?
Since 1989 over 4,000 commercial PVC pool membranes have been installed. Many of our original pools from 1989, through 1992 are still in operation with the original liners installed.
What is the warranty on a RenoSys project?
How long will a RenoSys PVC pool liner last?
The life expectancy of a standard RenoSys liner is estimated at between 15 and 25 years depending on months of operation, UV conditions, and care.
How much per square foot does a RenoSys PVC membrane cost?
Unfortunately, each RenoSys project must be quoted individually. A variety of factors including; size, the difficulty of installation, location, time window, elevated or not elevated, steps, union conditions, type of gutter and many other project conditions make it very difficult to price a project without specific information. Luckily we can usually get you a firm price quotation within 24 hours once you send in your Get A Quote form.
How is a RenoSys PVC pool liner membrane installed?
After performing required surface prep to spalled areas, a geotextile felt is adhered over the entire surface of the pool. A thick reinforced RenoSys blanket of reinforced PVC material is applied over the felt and adhered to it. The outer edge at the top of the wall or the back of the pool gutter can be attached in several different fashions however it always is mechanically fastened so that there are no free edges. All seams are melted together employing thermal fusion welding. Flanges are used to compress the material around all penetrations in your pool. Racing lanes and markings are applied over the top of the RenoSys membrane. The pool has a final inspection performed and is then filled.
How long will an installation take?
It depends upon the size of the pool, the season, and the difficulty. With that as a background, a typical 30′ x 60′ foot pool 5′ deep will take 3 to 6 days, a 42′ x 75′ pool with a 10′ dive hopper should run between 7 and 12 days and a 50-meter x 60′ wide pool will run between 2 and 3 weeks. This does not take into account weather or delay days due to other subs etc. We will try to give you an accurate time frame idea when we quote your pool.
Can I talk to some other customers about their pool project and satisfaction?
Absolutely. Upon receipt of our quotation, your sales associate will be happy to provide you with other similar pools to your project as well as various pools in your area.
How do we get a quotation we can depend on?
The procedure is very simple. First off, you fill out the Get A Quote form. We may ask you to provide a good sketch of your gutter and information about the surface condition. Often we will be able to give you a preliminary quotation with nothing further. Sometimes we may require 3 or 4 photos to show particularly complicated gutters or pool features. Once we have given a price to you and you have determined that the project fits in your budget, we frequently will be able to perform a site visit to show you specific installation details.
Occasionally schedules or distances will not permit a site inspection and we may need further photos or a video prior to accepting your project. Once we accept your project, we are responsible for our travel fees and costs if upon arrival we find that your project cannot be installed. This has only happened two or three times in the history of the company. In those cases, it was simply that the concrete around inlets and other penetrations had powder deteriorated to the point that the walls would not accept a 2″ stainless steel fastener. This is very easy to determine in advance of issuance of a contract. If you have any question about your pools concrete integrity, please ask your sales associate for direction.
My deck is slippery and has some deterioration. Do you have a solution for decks?
Yes! RecDeck PVC pool deck surfacing is designed for deck installations. It is heavily textured for slip resistance, is completely adhered over your existing tile, concrete or wooden deck, and is totally watertight.
What do I do if someone cuts the pool liner?
Liner cuts are extremely rare because to the user, a RenoSys pool liner appears like a soft coating of some type. In the unlikely case of a liner cut occurring, your membrane can be easily repaired with the underwater patch kit provided at the completion of every project.
What about my gutter and piping?
Typical gutters can leak over time. It is always wise to pressure test a gutter prior to installing a RenoSys liner. Pool piping should also be pressure tested if they are suspect.
I am building a new pool. Would RenoSys be a good choice for original installation on a new pool?
Absolutely. A RenoSys PVC Pool Liner provides significant advantages for a new pool surface. First off, you are going to pay for some new interior surface anyway making the RenoSys advantages particularly affordable. RenoSys costs far less than tile is only a small amount more in initial cost than a new plaster job or an epoxy paint (except in Florida). You will be assured of a pool that will be watertight. Chlorinated water and water at inappropriate pH values will not be direct-injected into your concrete causing deterioration. Cold joints will not be subject to leakage. The surface will be much easier to maintain while providing a safer more slip-resistant surface.
