Replace pool liner, prefabricated steel panel pool, Torremuelle, Benalmadena, Malaga.
Swimming pool liners as supplied with prefabricated pools are very thin, so are prone to being damaged and getting wrinkled, there are a few reasons for this. The prefabricated swimming pool is built to a budget, so a thicker liner would add to the cost, but the most important reason is that steel pools are designed to be installed by a competent DIY team, so the complete liner is supplied in one complete unit and has to be light enough for a couple of people to move into place. The Renolit AlkorPlan liner is so thick that it would not be able to be packaged up, if it was a complete finished liner. In addition the DIY team would not have the equipment or training to be able to weld the membrane.
The Renolit AlkorPlan liner is supplied in rolls 1.65m wide and it takes 2 very strong people to lift.
The first step of the installation is to take apart the fittings, such as the jets, skimmers, lights, hoover socket and drain. Once these are taken apart, their condition can be assessed and if anything can not be reused it can be replaced. A common problem is that the screws were overtightened during the initial installation, then the plastic eventually breaks, meaning that the fittings can’t be reused and the pool could have leaked.
The finish chosen here is Persia Sand from the Renolit AlkorPlan 3000 range. It is fixed to the walls of the pool using a flat metal profiles and contact adhesive, the sections are then welded together. We generally use one sheet down each wall to leave less seams.
For the steps we used Renolit AlkorPlan Touch, which, with its sand stone finish, gives a good look and a safe non slip step.
The jets are reassembled along with the other fittings and the pool is ready to be refilled.
