How Much Does An Above Ground Pool Liner Change Cost?
So you are wanting too, or needing to do a liner change in your above ground pool. When you are thinking about doing a liner change, there are a few things that can affect the cost.
Size of pool. Labor costs for above grounds are based on pool size. The cost on a liner will be based on pool size also.
Decking around pool. Every above ground pool will have some type of decking around it. Depending on how the deck was built, getting the top of the pool apart could be a real job. Possibly could be boards that need to be taken off to get to screws that are holding on top caps or top seats.
Liner type. Are you looking to put an overlap plain blue liner in your pool? Do you want a j-hook or beaded liner with a pattern? Depending on which you choose will determine the amount you will spend on a liner.
Here is a list of pricing for labor costs. This is our charge for our services, so the cost could change depending on who you have do the liner change.
- 18’ round - $500 12’x24’ oval - $550
- 24’ round - $600 15’x30’ oval - $700
- 27’ round - $650 18’x33’ oval - $800
Liner pricing can vary greatly but I will give you a range so you have an idea. An 18’ round overlap print bottom liner will be $172. A 30’ round overlap print bottom liner is $412. An 18’ round j-bead liner with pattern is $284. A 30’ one is $657. I know this is not real specific but hopefully can give you an idea of the cost on a liner.
One important step in changing the liner is to use all new gaskets and faceplates. Any skimmers, returns, and main drains if you have one, need new gaskets. I hear quite a bit, “I just had my liner changed and it seems like my pool is leaking.” First thing I ask is if new gaskets and faceplates were put on. If not, that is probably the problem. Not always, but most times.
