Conversion to LinerAqualon have been building & renovating pools since 1991. We specialise in replacing vinyl liners in in-ground pools and converting problem pools to Aqualux Pool Finish.
Conversion to Aqualux
Put an end to structural problems & ground movement permanently.
Aqualux is the only pool interior on the market that has been specifically engineered as a pool finish. Whether your pool has structural cracks from movement, old delaminating marblesheen, peeling paint or rough porous pebble – an Aqualux Pool Finish is the ultimate solution to your problems.
Aqualux is both beautiful & practical with the capability of stretching 300% before it will tear. Once installed the flexible interior will move with the pool & absorb any ground movement. This means that it will be a permanent solution to your leaking pool headaches.
The conversion process starts with preparation of the pool shell which usually involves either grinding or rendering the pool shell to ensure a smooth surface against the new interior. The pool returns then need to be converted to be compatible with vinyl return fittings.
Need a Permanent Solution?
A vacuum pipe is then installed to provide permanent drainage between the liner & the pool shell, with tracking points created around the pool for water to access it. The vacuum pipe is critical to the correct function of the pool & longevity of your new interior.
If you would like to add any steps or benches or change the configuration of the pool now is the time to do it, along with any tiling requirements. We then engage a surveyor to professionally measure the pool for a tailor-made 3D liner to ensure a perfect fit.
Award Winning Result!
Liner retaining extrusion is then attached to the pool perimeter. From placement of order the new 3D interior generally takes 2-3 weeks for manufacture. Once prepared the actual installation of the new interior can be installed and filled in a day.
What is the cost of a conversion?
The average cost of converting to an Aqualux Pool Finish is generally from $8,500.00 to $11,500.00. This of course varies from pool to pool and is dependant on the size of the pool. What varies?
* The size of the pool?
* Installation of the vacuum pipe – is it any easy install or do we need to dig 20 meters?
* The existing interior – is it pebble and needs rendering? Or is it a smooth finish?
* Benches & steps – existing & perhaps new additions?
* How many returns need converting?
* Are there any lights or would you like any?
* Allocation for heating now or in the future?
