It is recommended that you hand vacuum your pool for maximum life expectancy of your vinyl liner.
If an automatic pool cleaner is used, it may cause pool liner damage such as: wear, pattern scuffing, or fading. The damage caused by an automatic pool cleaner or any damage caused during the installation of liner is not covered under our liner warranty. Please be sure to check with the manufacturer of your automatic pool cleaner to establish compatibility with the liner and other accessories used in the operation of your pool.
It is also recommended that you NOT use any cleaning solutions on your liner at any time. We recommend that you only use a soft cloth or a sponge and the pool water to wipe down the liner above the waterline to remove and prevent any build up of body oils, suntan oils and environmental deposits that may cling to the surface of the liner. This build up can cause premature degradation of the vinyl liner and the liner print. Your liner should at no time be cleaned with anything other than a soft cloth or a sponge. This can cause dry rot or print loss, which is also not covered under the warranty. This cleaning should be performed at least once a week, even if there is no apparent build up, as this is not always visible.
Careful attention to this process and proper water chemistry will help prolong the life of your liner.
