POOL LINERS & SYSTEMS

Superb Lining Solutions For Projects Both Big And Small With liner pools still being the most popular type of pool in the UK, there will always be a demand for a variety of lining solutions for both new build or refurbishment projects of any size. So whether big or small, the good news is that the days of limited choice are well and truly in the past thanks to an everexpanding offering of high quality and durable manufactured and on site options. So what’s available for the 2021 season? We examine some of the options By Jon Wadeson

T

here are various ways to transform any kind of swimming pool from an unsightly vision to welcoming oasis of calm, but one of the simplest and most effective ways for both outdoor and indoor liner pools is a complete refresh of the interior – and for the vast majority of pools across the country, that means some form of new lining. More often than not, that means a new pool liner and each season, the quality and range of designs, colours, patterns and now textures that are available increases, meaning pool owners who wish to transform or renovate their pride and joy can do so fairly quickly and at a relatively low cost. “Whether it’s a factory made ‘bag’ liner or a heavy-duty site applied liner, the range and quality of swimming pool vinyl linings has come on in leaps and bounds in recent years,” said Certikin Product Manager, Craig Williamson. “The strength and durability of pool vinyl has increased enormously thanks to the application of improved protective lacquers which, when combined with high quality inks and colourings, improves stain and abrasion resistance, reduces plasticiser migration and helps combat UV degradation.” It goes without saying that these products

are suitable for new projects, but they really come into their own with refurbishment pools, both big and small as a new pool lining whether produced in a factory or applied on site has the ability to give used pools the chance to impress again and often gives them the appearance of being ‘nearly new’ again. Regardless of size, style or aesthetic requirement, there’s sure to be a liner or lining solution that ticks all the necessary boxes and over the next few pages, we take a look at just some of the available options.

CREATE A BEAUTIFUL AND UNIQUE POOL WITH AQUAFLEX SYNERGY Aquaflex is proud to provide the UK swimming pool industry with Alkorplan approved site lining teams to cover the ever growing commercial and domestic swimming pool 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 an expanding range of 1.5 and 2.0mm site lining patterns, customers have a variety of choices ranging from natural and ceramic embossed designs to conventional

standard patterns used widely in the commercial market. Aquaflex also produces .750mm pretailored liners in their 22,000 square foot factory in Salisbury, Wiltshire where they have a strong reputation for complex designs and non-conventional steps and features. With a design team that has the skill and the experience to incorporate new, revolutionary designs, they strive to push the boundaries of what can be achieved with liners. One of the company’s popular innovations is their Synergy offering. This perfect blend of Aquaflex pool lining system and ceramics offers a unique and beautiful combination, transforming any pool and giving it a sophisticated and elegant look. The installation of Aquaflex Synergy is similar to that of the company’s normal pool lining system but with the additional installation of a 300mm heavy weight PVC coated metal profile around the top perimeter of the pool. Once the pool has been lined, using a special adhesive, ceramic tiles are laid onto the PVC coated metal. A customer’s chosen tiles are then grouted in the normal way, achieving a beautiful tiled finish at the waterline of the pool. Aquaflex’s large range of lining system materials can be married with any complementary ceramic tiles. So create something beautiful and request a quote now for the Aquaflex Synergy, simplicity at its best.
