How much does a pool liner replacement cost in 2021?
Swimming pool liner replacement prices were steady from 2004 to 2012. Then started the slow rise in prices from 2012 to 2017. But then came the 2018 liner pricing spike. The 2018 spike which carried over to the 2019 price increases were basically based on two main factors…the economy is booming and the shortage of Americans willing to do manual labor jobs (like installing pool liners).
As with any industry you can look for the super low priced outliers but you are taking a major risk. The pool liner replacement industry is no different than any other industry… you get what you pay for. If you find a company or individual that is offering liner replacement for several hundred dollars less than everyone else AND asking for a deposit there is a 90% chance you will be scammed. Legit pool liner companies don’t need for you to pay a deposit in order to stay in business.
So let’s get on with the pool liner pricing for 2021. Keep in mind these price ranges are relatively wide due to factors such as local market, distance from installer, liner quality, crew experience, etc..
- 16 x 32 Rectangle ($3380-$4380)
- 18 x 36 Rectangle ($3650-$4650)
- 20 X 40 Rectangle ($3970-$4970)
- 16 x32 Freeform ($3410-$4410)
- 18 x36 Freeform ($3680-$4680)
- 20 x40 Freeform ($4090-$5090)
Use these prices as a guide and you should be ok when choosing your pool liner installation company.
Never pay a deposit unless you have 100% trust in the liner replacement company you have chosen.
