Vinyl Liner Pools

Vinyl pools are a beautiful and relatively inexpensive pool option. There is simply no other way that your family can begin enjoying their own in-ground pool as quickly or as inexpensively as with vinyl.

Because of the nature of the material, it is vital that the vinyl lining and associated plumbing be installed correctly to ensure a long-lasting pool. Since vinyl pools require a lower investment than other types of pools, there are a number of installers jumping into the market who do not have the level of experience that Big Wave Pools brings to the party.

David Martine is an exceptional contractor! A rarity in the Wichita area. He did an outstanding job on my pool, is responsive to questions and personally worked several Sundays to get the pool up and running by 4 July, only 4 weeks after he started. Highly recommend him!
