Liner replacement. Liner repair. Liner installation.

Minnesota swimming pool liner replacements are one of our specialties and are a major part of our repair work. We typically install 50-60 liners in the short Minnesota summer and have the experience to make sure yours is installed perfectly. We measure your pool to exact specifications and guarantee your liner will fit perfectly, be wrinkle free, and NOT be over-stretched. Liner fit is the single most important aspect to ensure a long life for your new swimming pool liner.


We are so confident in our liner fit that we offer a wrinkle "FREE" guarantee. If your new liner has a wrinkle, you will not pay another dime.*


We recommend and use only Merlin liners. They are backed by a 20 and 25 year manufacturer warranty and come with 38 pattern choices. Merlin liners are made of the finest virgin vinyl available and are resistant to sunlight, bacteria, fungus and chemicals.

Bucket Test Procedure:

1. Bring the pool water to its normal level

2. Fill an empty bucket with pool water to about one inch from the top of bucket. (By filling the bucket close to the top you are ensuring that air movement over the surface of the bucket will similar to that of the pool.)

3. Place the bucket on the first or second step of the pool. To keep it from floating away it may be necessary to place a few bricks or rocks into the bucket. (By placing the bucket in the pool water you are ensuring that the water temperature of each will be similar).

4. Mark the water level inside the bucket.

5. Mark the water level of the pool on the outside of the bucket, on the pool wall, or skimmer face plate.

6. Operate the pool for 24 hours it had been operated when a leak was first suspected.

7. After 24 hours, compare the two levels. If the pool water (outside mark) goes down more than the inside water level, there is probably a leak.
