The difference between a classic liner and a reinforced swimming pool membrane

The liner constitutes the one of the most popular coverings for swimming pools. Its effectiveness has long been proven and its adaptability is remarkable. It can therefore be used indoors, as well as outdoors, on above-ground or in-ground swimming pools.

There are several thicknesses of liners:

- thickness less than 75/100 e, that is to say 75 hundredths of a millimeter, or 0.75 mm generally reserved for above ground swimming pools;
- thickness 75/100 e for in-ground outdoor or indoor swimming pools, for private use;
- thickness equal to or greater than 150/100th (which can go up to 200/100th), commonly called reinforced swimming pool membrane or reinforced liner.

It is this last thickness that interests us. This reinforced swimming pool membrane is made up of two PVC sheets which sandwich a polyester frame. It is recommended for swimming pools for collective use, but also for private installations, because it offers greater resistance and better longevity. This reinforced PVC adapts perfectly to in-ground swimming pools whose shapes can be very diverse. It is also recommended for specific developments, such as submerged beaches for example. Finally, reinforced PVC appears ideal for heated swimming pools.

The cost of the reinforced swimming pool membrane is higher than that of a classic liner, but its durability allows you to make significant savings by avoiding premature wear.


What are the characteristics of the reinforced swimming pool membrane?

The reinforced swimming pool membrane remains completely independent of its support, which allows you to adapt it to all types of pool structure.

Once the covering has been installed, the appearance of reinforced PVC for swimming pools does not differ from that of a classic liner. You have a very wide range of colors and finishes which allows you to select the one that will fit best into the environment of your pool.


The composition of reinforced PVC

The reinforced membrane is made up of a high-strength woven polyester frame which is integrated between two heat-welded layers of PVC. It is considered armed when its thickness exceeds 1.5 mm, but it can measure up to 2 mm thick. The reinforced membrane is designed to last up to 20 years and more.

To ensure the quality of your reinforced PVC, you have two standards:

1. NF EN 15836-1 for a liner whose thickness is greater than or equal to 0.75 mm;
2. NF EN 15836-2 for a liner whose thickness is greater than or equal to 1.5 mm.


Optional treatments

The reinforced membrane for swimming pools can receive optional treatments:

- if your pool is located outside (and even inside) and it is exposed in the sun, the anti-UV treatment will prevent you from any problem of fading over time;
- the fungicide and antibacterial treatment protects your pool from the proliferation of micro-organisms and algae;
- anti-slip treatment is strongly recommended to secure the facilities on which you walk such as the submerged beach or the stairs.


The adaptability of reinforced PVC for swimming pools

Adaptation to all sizes and shapes

The reinforced swimming pool membrane is supplied in rolls of various widths and lengths. It must then be cut according to the size and shape of your pool, then the strips are put in place and welded. This is the reason why it can adapt to free shapes and various types of pools (infinity pool, swimming lane, etc.), unlike the liner which is in the form of a custom-designed pocket.

Adaptation to any support, including to repair a defective pool

Reinforced PVC for swimming pools also has the advantage of being placed on all types of supports: wood, metal, concrete, etc. Furthermore, if you have a shell swimming pool (made of polyester, resin or acrylic) or a masonry and tiled swimming pool, reinforced PVC can be used to repair its waterproofing problems.

All temperature resistance

The reinforced membrane resists all temperatures. You can therefore use it for an outdoor swimming pool exposed to climatic hazards, as well as for a heated pool, whether indoors or outdoors.

This type of covering is used for public establishments (municipal swimming pools, pools in hotels and specialized establishments, etc.) receiving a large number of visitors. Its resistance is therefore impeccable and guarantees very long-term private use.


Installation of the reinforced membrane for swimming pool

Due to the welding to be carried out during its installation, the installation of the reinforced membrane proves to be more complicated than that of a liner classic, ready to use, because the welds constitute the weak point of this type of coating. If you do not have the necessary tools and know-how, it is best to hire a professional. You thus ensure the solidity of the welds and the quality of the installation. In the event of a problem, you are covered by the professional's insurance.

The installation requires applying a technique which is not within everyone's reach. The steps are as follows:

- cleaning and disinfection of the pool, because your support must be perfectly clean to accommodate the coating;
- installation of geotextile felt: although this step is not essential, it is recommended, particularly if your ground and the walls of the pool have irregularities;
- application of the reinforced membrane to the walls;
- fixing the membrane on the upper part of the pool: you have the choice between the use of a rail fixed under the coping or that of a specific sheet, comprising a PVC strip;
- application of reinforced PVC to the bottom of the pool;
- shaping and application of the membrane on various installations, such as the staircase.

The strips are prepared to obtain an overlap of 5 cm, then welded using a hot air gun. It is also possible to use a solvent.

The maintenance of reinforced PVC?

Maintenance of the reinforced membrane is not complicated, but just requires taking a few precautions. Use network water and not borehole water. It is important to clean your water line regularly and be wary of limescale deposits. To preserve your armed membrane, it is advisable to maintain a pH between 7.2 and 7.6. Pay attention to your chlorine level, as it poses a threat to the watertightness of your pool. Its level should be between 0.5 and 1 ppm.

conseil entretien PVC arme piscine

Do not put chemicals in direct contact with your reinforced PVC. Add maintenance products directly to the skimmers with the pump running.

Never use copper-based products.

Your reinforced membrane has been treated, so never use abrasive tools or aggressive chemicals which could damage its protection.
