Maintain proper water balance.
a. pH in the 7.2 to 7.4 range (extremely important).
b. Total Alkalinity at approximately 100 -120 ppm.
c. Calcium Hardness at a minimum of 100 ppm.
low pH of less that 7.0 should especially be avoided since it can cause
the liner to form wrinkles. There is a greater risk of wrinkling
if the water is not stabilized with a cyanuric acid level of at least
Chemicals should never be mixed together and added to the pool at the
same time. Certain combinations of chemicals that individually
have no effect can cause bleaching of the liner if concentrations are
allowed to remain in the vicinity of the liner. Always allow a
chemical to disperse throughout the pool by means of water circulation
before adding a second chemical.
Never close a pool in the Fall without circulating the pool water for
several hours after the final addition of chemicals. Even liquid
chlorine can concentrate in the deep end and cause bleaching if not
properly mixed with the rest of the pool.
Avoid the use of any abrasive cleaning agents or cleansing aides (ie.,
steel wool, sharp bristled brushes, scouring pads, etc.)
only manufacture's recommended vinyl cleaners for cleaning accumulated
soil at the water line or other soiled areas.
Maintain a 1.0 to 1.5 ppm chlorine level and correct any algae
situration as quickly as possible. Algae inhibits your liner's
ability to remain resilient and shortens the life of the the liner.
Always use algaecides as recommended to avoid bleaching and
