It’s just the nature of the beast when you own a vinyl liner swimming pool; you’ll have to eventually replace the liner. Generally, vinyl liners on above ground pools and inground pools last for 10 – 15 years. In some cases, it could be less. In some cases, it could be more. It all depends on your chemical usage and how you’re balancing them in your pool. But, make no mistake, the #1 killer of swimming pool liners is poor water chemistry!
