Low installation costs – Pools that are designed especially to accommodate vinyl pool liners tend to have the lowest initial installation costs compared to other pool types. This makes them very popular among many homeowners.  

Long life – Pool liners can last up to 30 years years, depending on a location’s climate conditions. They are easy to replace, and disposal is likewise uncomplicated since vinyl is a recyclable type of plastic.
