The following practical advice applies to any swimming pool that fits in the garden of your ex-pat home living in the Greek Islands such as Crete, on Mainland Greece or Cyprus. After winter is over, look after repairing a pool vinyl liner and attend to the landscaping, outdoor buildings, walls fences and decks to maintain an eco-friendly environment, to be pleasing to look at throughout the long hot summer.
A familiar sight each season for many vinyl-liner pool owners is sags or gaps at the track that holds the liner in place. Constant fluctuations in temperature over the winter can cause the vinyl to stretch and pop out at certain spots - most often at corners or where there is plastic trim in a concrete deck that meets with the pool coping. In many cases, the vinyl can be pulled up and snapped back into place in just a few minutes. Dive in!
