Have you ever wondered where your vinyl pool liner is manufactured? Or are you researching the company that makes the pool liner you are about to buy? Maybe you are a pool guy, interested in connecting with vinyl pool liner manufacturers - in any case, this post is a directory of pool liner companies in the 48 states.
Vinyl pools have been around since their New Jersey debut in 1948, which explains the predominance of vinyl liner manufactures in the Northeast. Vinyl pool kits made it into the Sears Roebuck Catalog in 1951 as a DIY pool kit project, for $500. There are over 5 million vinyl liner pools in the U.S., which all need replacement vinyl liners every 10 years or so, which explains the need for several dozen pool liner manufacturers.
Vinyl pool liners are made with colored polyvinyl chloride (PVC), rolled into thin sheets or films as they are called in the trade, and printed with dyes to produce patterns. The rolls of PVC material are cut into sections for the wall and floor, and heat welded together with a lap seam. A thick vinyl bead is then welded onto the top edge for beaded or j-hook style liners. After a pool liner is made, manufacturers use inflation and lighting to inspect for bad welds or material defects.
Without further ado; here's our directory list of 15 Pool Liner Manufacturers, along with a snippet or two from their website. Most manufacturers will only sell to the trade; through distributors, dealers, retailers or installers, like SPP - see our full line of vinyl pool liners.
