The process of replacing a vinyl liner includes the following.

  • The swimming pool owner schedules a time for New Wave Pools LLC to get the length and width of the swimming pool, the pattern of your choice, the manufacturer, and the mil (thickness). This allows New Wave Pools LLC to get an accurate idea on the type of swimming pool and the amount of work that is needed to install the new vinyl liner
