Differences between reinforced pool liners

Differences between reinforced pool liners. Not all are the same!


When a product is good there are always copycat businesses coming up. The inevitable happens, but there is no such thing as a free lunch. 


That a product looks like another one and that it sells at a lower price doesn’t mean that the quality is the same as the original one. There are indeed differences between reinforced pool liners. RENOLIT always has to deal with copycat businesses, but you shouldn’t let yourself be fooled. All products that take advantage of this successful situation do not have either the technical features characteristic of RENOLIT ALKORPLAN or its quality standards.

That means that once the “mirror” has been installed, it will deteriorate after a while, it will lose its colour and texture and will have to be replaced shortly after. That is without mentioning how annoyed the poor pool owner will be after realising the cheat.

How to detect it?

There are different ways of knowing whether the pool lining that is being installed is RENOLIT ALKORPLAN or not.


  • You get what you pay for. Price normally indicates whether the lining that’s being installed in your pool is good or not. As already pointed out here, there is no such thing as a free lunch.

  • Comparisons are odious. In both our blog and in the shops of our authorised pool builders there are catalogues, pictures and sample books of our real product so that you can touch it. It is good to compare what the installer is offering you with pictures of our product in order to make sure that the reinforced liner we are being offered is the original one.

  • Online presence. In our social media we provide comprehensive information on our product with pictures of pool projects from companies and customers, testimonial videos, tutorials and pieces of advice on RENOLIT ALKORPLAN reinforced membrane. Our online presence and transparency makes the difference in comparison with our competitors.


  • The back. Either if you are an installer or an end customer, when you receive our product please make sure that RENOLIT ALKORPLAN is printed on the back. This guarantees that it is indeed the original product with all its benefits.

Several advantages of our product ranges!

When you choose RENOLIT ALKORPLAN reinforced pool liner you enjoy several benefits.

  • First of all, all our ranges are coated with a protective lacquer which prevents the premature ageing of the liner. They are provided with great durability and thanks to their flexibility they can be installed on any shape or surface. They are durable, strong and beautiful.
  • Top-quality materials: Apart from the advantages of any RENOLIT ALKORPLAN product range, we have to mention that the manufacturing materials are of high quality. Before sending the reinforced pool liner to the installer we check and analyse it in order to guarantee an outstanding quality and 100% watertightness.
  • Guarantee: We look after our customers’ tranquility, so that they just have to care about enjoying their pool. In all our RENOLIT ALKORPLAN product ranges we guarantee and certify watertightness for at least 10 years.  In the case of RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME, we offer 15 years waterproofing guarantee.

The peace of mind you are given when you know the benefits of our reinforced pool liner is priceless. Find out RENOLIT certified installers near you via our contact form. This way you’ll get the original product for your pool refurbishment or for your new pool as well as its correct installation.

TOP 10 reasons for having a swimming pool at home

Summer is just round the corner and like every year you are still considering building a pool in your garden. Here we give you 10 reasons for finally making up your mind to have a pool at home.

  1. Relax
    Your garden and more specifically your swimming pool must be a place to wind down. Relaxing in your swimming pool will help you unwind after a hard day. Can you imagine a summer without going on holiday? Well, every time you seek refuge in your swimming pool it’s like a mini-holiday. Although it’s not exactly the same, it is a good way to relax and take stock.

  1. Improves social and family life
    Let’s not kid ourselves, one of the main reasons for having a private pool is to enjoy it with family and friends. If you build a pool in your garden it will become a gathering place in which to spend long sunny days and wind down.
  2. Take exercise
    Say no to sedentary leisure with a swimming pool. In it we can not only do sport but also a variety of aquatic games. Swim, do aquagym, volleyball or put a trampoline in your pool. As well as encouraging a healthy life it will be your greatest ally in fighting the heat.
  3. Enjoy your privacy.
    Spending time in a public pool and in a private one are two different things. Take refuge in your garden and forget about the elbowing, the screeching and getting splashed by everybody else. Your pool will be for you and your family and friends only.

  4. 24/365
    It’s your house and you dictate the timetable. Enjoy your pool when you come back from work, when you have just got up in the morning or during the night. There are endless options for covering your pool in winter and being able to use it all year round.
  5. Ideal for children
    No doubt about it, having a pool at home will be the number one delight for your kids. Always accompanied by an adult, they will have a great time.
  6. Enjoy the weather
    We live in a very hot environment, we have very long summers, with good weather, and many hours of sun, so having a swimming pool at home will mean you can freshen up to fight the heat and enjoy the summer to the full.
  7. Add value to your house
    Get the most out of your garden by putting in a swimming pool. Your house will increase its value. A garden isn’t complete without a swimming pool. Any home conversion or investment improves your quality of life, comfort and obviously also increases its value. Also, with RENOLIT ALKORLPAN’s reinforced membrane designs your pool will be the envy of your neighbours.

  8. Be happy
    You still haven’t made up your mind to put in a swimming pool at home? You have now seen the many benefits a swimming pool will bring and remember, when you are enjoying your swimming pool you can smile and say, actually money IS the key to happiness.
  9. Because you have been wanting one for a long time

Now is the time to take the plunge and make your dream come true.

A marble design into your pool to give life to your garden

The first step to being successful in building a pool is the select the colour. Whether you are renovating your pool (if it is made of marble or glass mosaic tiles) or whether you are building it yourself from scratch in your garden.

If you still have not dug the hole, you may have to… but that is the least important aspect.


Let us tell you what is really important. Are you familiar with the RENOLIT ALKORPLAN reinforced pool liner?
It’s not a tongue-twister: the liner itself (imitation marble) looks more real than the marble. 😛
The reinforced liner gives a result that is almost identical to marble… and now we’ll explain the “almost” bit.

As you know, marble is a compact rock with a White-veined, crystalline texture that is often used for building and sculpting: pools are no exception and they have also been used as subject matter by artists and as collector’s items… without anyone who is in your garden noticing it, the reinforced liner is a less expensive, fast and easy to install system.  You will have an attractive pool in the twinkling of an eye.

A pool that your friends are bound to love….
