f a client requires an amazing and unique addition to their home or business, then a pool liner could be the answer. With a huge assortment of patterns, colours and finishes already available, new variations and styles continue to be added to the market every season. “Whether it be a factory made ‘bag’ liner or a heavy duty site applied liner, it is certainly true that in recent years the range and quality of swimming pool vinyl linings has improved significantly,” said Certikin’s Liners and Covers Product Manager, Craig Williamson. “The options to create the ‘look’ of the liner have also developed dramatically in recent years. Whist most of the traditional classics are still available, the introduction of vibrant colours, photographic printing, metallic finishes and embossed finishes that offer a natural stone look and ‘touch’, or even a real mosaic tile appearance mean that the finished look to a pool can be unique, classical, dramatic or plain and simple. This explosion in options is not only restricted to factory made liner component materials, as used to be the case, but has extended into commercial grade materials. The site applied lining option, which was once the preserve of the commercial pool, is now desirable to the domestic owner who can combine the benefits of a heavy grade liner with the colour, pattern or effect they wish to see every time they swim,” he added. With so many choices now available, there’s guaranteed to be something for everyone, whatever their taste or budget.

a variety of choices ranging from natural and ceramic embossed designs to conventional standard patterns used widely in the commercial market. Site lining is the perfect solution for non-uniform shaped pools and offers a cost effective solution compared to other finishes such as ceramic tiles. With the introduction of the new Ceramics range, customers can now have a site lined pool with the appearance of ceramic tiles at a more affordable price.
