OCEA UK HAS Thrown its significant hat into the swimming pool liner ring.

Traditionally a product for the commercial pool sector, the increase in availability of colours and designs has opened up the option of on-site pool linings to the residential market. More swimming pool companies are now offering the system as a preferable and more flexible alternative to conventional pool finishes.

In terms of cost comparison, a site lining usually falls between cheaper options such as paint and thinner, bag style, liners and more expensive options such as tiling or spray applied products. Versatility is a key benefit of on-site lining.

The installation process involves taking heavy duty vinyl to site and cutting, shaping and heat welding it, resulting in a perfectly fitted lining to the pool shell. This adaptability means that it can be applied to almost any pool situation, regardless of shape or construction.
