Polyester pool liner:
what is it?
Polyester lining is to be dissociated from the polyester shell.
Although it is the same material used for manufacturing, polyester liner and polyester shell are two very different things. Although identical in appearance, polyester lining is a material that can completely cover the inside of a concrete or other rough material pool to waterproof it and provide a finish with a boat hull effect.
Applied in several layers in the pool, polyester lining adds a thickness ranging from 2.5 to 4mm to the entire pool structure.
This additional waterproof layer is composed of a mixture of resin and glass mat capable of ensuring the total waterproofing of the pool.
Unlike a polyester hull which is only a one-piece component, the polyester liner benefits after its application from a visual and sensory finish provided by special products. A "Gel Coat" and a "Top Coat" are applied successively at the end of the operation to protect the pool from cracks and provide a smooth top coat over the entire surface of the swimming pool.
Both visually and to the touch, the interior of the polyester-lined pool is therefore aesthetically soft and modern.
The polyester pool liner therefore creates a protective and resistant envelope in all pools regardless of their shape, construction material or even size.

How to maintain polyester pool liner?
Generally speaking, maintaining your pool is very important regardless of your chosen liner.
It is through maintenance that you can keep your pool nice, clean and in good condition over the long term. When it comes to the polyester liner, maintenance is easy although it is still essential. Certain cleaning points are essential to keep a shiny polyester liner in your pool over the seasons and years.
In the line of fire for your pond maintenance: cleaning the water line.
The water line has a tendency to blacken due to external pollution or to turn yellow due to sun creams. The result: a deposit of limescale settles on the walls and cleaning becomes difficult once the dirt is embedded. This is why we strongly advise cleaning the water line of your polyester pool at least once a week during the high season to avoid damaging the lining with encrusted dirt.
When it comes to using chemicals to clean your pool, there are no particular contraindications with polyester pool liners. Just be careful not to excessively add chemicals such as hydrochloric acid for example. This very corrosive treatment product could damage your liner due to overdosing and/or as a reaction to repeated exposure of the corrosive product on the polyester.
Polyester maintenance is therefore a matter of frequency and regular care of your pond.
To help you with the maintenance of your pool, don't hesitate to call on a specialist pool company that will offer you treatment solutions, cleaning robots, filtration systems and maintenance contracts for your private and collective pools.
Polyester pool lining: a professional job
While polyester has many advantages for lining the inside of a new or renovated pool, there are still some points to be aware of if this lining is to be optimal in every respect. In particular, the use of a polyester liner requires expertise during installation to ensure that everything is perfect when designing or renovating a pond.
In particular, there are 3 key points to be aware of and adhere to when installing a waterproof polyester liner in a large swimming pool.
Polyester installation and drying
When designing a new polyester pool liner, it is very important to follow the installation steps. The installation methodology as well as drying times are paramount for the success of a reliable, aesthetic and 100% waterproof liner. The steps for installing polyester require the intervention of professionals who know this special material and its characteristics.
The choice of coating colour
As a luxury pool expert near Monaco, we advise owners to choose a rather light shade of polyester. Although many colours are available, light colours are to be preferred not only in terms of aesthetics but also in terms of resistance. Conversely, a dark colour will be more fragile to U.V. rays and will tend to deteriorate more quickly over time.
The optimal water pH test
Testing the pH of your bathing water is important regardless of the coating. However, polyester is a particularly sensitive material to pH and limescale. It is therefore recommended that not to exceed a pH of 7.4 to ensure ideal water. Also remember to use "stop-limescale" solutions to prevent premature wear and tear of your coating with limescale.
