How To Cure A New Vinyl Liner

Items Needed To Cure A New Vinyl Liner In A Pool:

  • Regular Household Bleach

New vinyl liners release gasses  from the manufacturing process (off-gas) for up to 3 years after installation.  The gases irritate eyes, cause pH to rise constantly, and cause the liner to feel slippery.  Follow these steps to "cure" the liner and stop the off-gassing:

1)  Use one gallon regular household bleach for every 10,000 gallons of water in the pool.  Pour the bleach in the pool. 

2)  Continue this each week for 6 to 8 weeks.

3)  The liner will be finished off-gassing when it no longer feels slippery.
