Pool measuring has been a large part of a service professional’s job for many years. The skill to measure accurately takes training, patience, and time as they are necessary for the successful installation of high-priced custom fabricated vinyl liners and safety covers. Correct measurements not only ensure products fit properly, but also help projects operate more efficiently.
Latham Pool Products, a large North American manufacturer of swimming pool components and accessories has added to its pool products portfolio with the acquisition of Plastimayd LLC, a manufacturer of swimming pool vinyl liners with facilities in Louisiana and Oregon. In addition to Plastimayd and VynAll liners, the acquisition also includes CoverLogix safety covers.
After displaying the company’s new seamless vinyl liners at the 2013 Atlantic City Pool & Spa Show, Latham Pool Products™ says it has received significant interest from the Canadian swimming pool industry.
Vinyl pool liners, which are protected by special additives and coatings, can withstand the extremes of sunshine, heat, cold and constant exposure to chemically treated water. However, even the highest quality liner is still subject to staining, discolouration and other unsightly symptoms if proper water balance is not maintained, debris is allowed to remain in the pool and if water treatment chemicals are used improperly.
