Choosing a Swimming Pool Liner Color

What is the best choice for a Swimming Pool Liner Color?

Recently, the owners of one of our luxury historic home listings decided to investigate replacing the vinyl liner of their heated inground swimming pool to stretch out the time the pool could be used. The sellers looked at the benefits associated with choosing different liner colors, specifically dark blue versus light blue.

This property sits in the mountains of western North Carolina in the charming college town of Sylva.

It is located less than an hour west of Asheville, and like Asheville, this property enjoys four distinct seasons – a short winter, a long warm spring, short hot summer, and a long warm fall. 

The sellers have a large family. Children and grandchildren are frequent visitors and spend much time splashing in the pool.  In their quest for different swimming pool liners, they discovered the following pros and cons: 

Dark blue liner: Advantages include better heat retention, a more natural look, and it is easier to find leaves in dark bottom.

Disadvantages include algae growth, difficulty in seeing the bottom of the pool, and dirt stains that can be hard to remove. 

Light blue liner: Advantages include easy spot cleaning, good visibility of the bottom, and resistance to algae growth. 

Disadvantages include heat loss, fading over time, and a hard-to-find natural look. 

The family chose a dark blue liner for their pool, which they love. They have found that regularly adding algaecide helps prevent algae buildup and keeps their pool looking beautiful. They are happy with their decision and would highly recommend dark blue to anyone wanting to upgrade their pool liner.

Aesthetically, the pool blends beautifully with the home’s exterior. The pool is much more inviting and has a more relaxing appearance!  In conclusion, the family found that both dark and light blue liners have advantages and disadvantages for swimming pool usage. It all comes down to personal preference when choosing a color for your own pool liner. Having researched the pros and cons of both, they can now enjoy the benefits of their dark blue liner with peace of mind!
