K&M POOLS uses only top quality virgin vinyl liners produced by leading liner manufactures, e.g., PREMIER (by Latham International) and MERLIN Industries. Premier liners are made from the finest virgin vinyl available, are treated with special fungicide to inhibit bacterial growth and are smooth to the touch and easy to clean! MERLIN liners are constructed with U.S.A. made vinyl which provides extra U.V. and antibacterial protection.
These companies have production processes that produce the liner to the exact specifications of your pool, making your liner fits properly, as well as accurate and timely ship dates. However, the most important factor in using these companies is their warranty policy.
At the time of the liner sale, we provide our clients with actual liner samples, not just pictures in a brochure, so they can see the exact color and feel the texture of the vinyl. All our pools are measured by our staff. After the pool is measured, we create a “drawing” or “AB plot” of your pool based on the measurements. The drawing is then sent to the liner manufacturer for liner production. The liner measure is critical for proper liner fit: proper liner fit not only makes the pool look good but extends the life of the liner.
LINER CHANGE PROCESS:
Create pool sketch or AB plot
Send pool sketch or AB plot to liner manufacturer
Liner manufacturer produces the liner
Liner is received from the manufacturer
Liner installation is scheduled
The water is removed from the pool.
The old liner is removed.
The pool floor is prepared for the new liner.
This process varies with each job, depending on the type and condition of the existing pool floor.
This example is a sand floor that needed complete repair.
The pool floor is ready for the new liner.
The new liner is installed.
Vacuums are placed between the pool wall and the liner.
Start adding water to the pool.
Stop filling the pool when water reaches the "mark" in the shallow end of the pool.
K&M Pools returns to the job and removes the vacuums.
Add water to the pool until it reaches normal height (middle of skimmer).
Water level is monitored for 24 hours (to ensure no water loss due to liner defect)
Skimmers, Returns, etc. are cut out and pool is ready to run!
