How often should you reline your community centre pool?

Has your community centre pool been running for over 10 years? Then you may want to think about relining it. Before you undertake this expensive task you should determine if it is definitely ready to be replaced. If you are unsure, we would always recommend seeking a professional opinion first. Our team of experts are here to help with a vast experience in both commercial and private pools, take a look at our testimonials page to see for yourself. 

In all pools, the lining is very important as it forms a barrier between the wall of the pool and the water inside of it. Over time, your pool liner is subject to a significant amount of wear and tear so it is important to keep an eye out for potential issues. This is especially important with community centre pools which naturally experience a high volume of impact, meaning the lining may need replacing sooner than the average pool to ensure the safety of customers.

Swimming pool problems can be a big headache and in an ideal world are not something you want to face more than once. If you are looking for an alternative option, our pool relining epoxy membrane lining system offers a permanent and low maintenance solution to all tank problems and can be applied to any surface in both indoor and outdoor pools.

On average, pools in the UK need to be resurfaced around every 10 – 15 years, allowing the pool to have more longevity. However, there is no set time when a swimming pool will need refurbishment as variables such as where the pool is located and volume of use will impact the time period before a refurbishment is required. Although, there are several signs that will help you identify if it’s time to reline your community centre pool:

Fading – If you notice that the colour of your community centre pool liner has faded it may be time to think about replacing it. If your pool is outdoors it may be subject to sun damage which can speed up the fading process and can make your pool liner more volatile causing punctures and breaks.

Leaking – Some water loss is normal as it can be caused by customers splashing around or simply by evaporation. However, if you notice a significant amount of water loss you may have a puncture in the pool liner. Depending on the size of your community centre pool and the tear, you may need a complete replacement.

One of the significant benefits of relining your community centre pools with our epoxy membrane lining, is that it improves the pool’s hygiene by not supporting bacterial growth. This is crucial for a commercial pool that experiences high customer turnovers. As well as this, other benefits include: a continuous membrane, highly resistant to abrasion and swimming pool chemicals and a reinforced-based laminate that will endure thermal shock. Therefore, this highlights the importance of upgrading your pool’s lining whilst ensuring its lifespan.
