Site Lining – Strength and Versatility
When it comes to negotiating tight corners, complicated shapes and unusual sizes, the Alkorplan pool lining system by Aquaflex offers the ultimate in flexibility.
A lining system is ideal for both commercial and residential pools – and comes into its own particularly on renovation and refurbishment sites.
Alkorplan’s main selling point is its exceptional strength. The material which incorporates a polyester reinforced mesh is 1.5 mm thick which enables it to withstand intensive use and severe knocks from even the most enthusiastic swimmers. It also has a special formula that includes a UV stabilising treatment which can withstand exposure to all extremes of weather, retaining its properties year after year.
Guaranteed for ten years, with a life expectancy nearer 15 to 20 years, MY POOL DIRECT”S Aquaflex’s Alkorplan pool lining system can be used on new or existing constructions including concrete, cement render, brick or block, steel or aluminium, timber or fibreglass builds. Alkorplan is ready for installation in any swimming pool irrespective of shape; rectangle, oval, kidney, circular, trapezoidal, completely irregular, with or without lined steps etc.
Alkorplan lined swimming pools can be comfortably run at temperatures up to 33ºC (91ºF) without any detrimental effect on the expected life of the lining. Even at temperatures up to 35ºC (95ºF) the lining will give many years of service and is still covered by a more limited 5 year guarantee.
There are several colour and pattern options available as well as slip resistant step lining. There is also an option to have lane markings incorporated into the lining for competition swimming.

Site Lining – The Method
Before MY POOL DIRECT’S Renolit Team is called in, the shell of the pool would be prepared or built by the main pool contractors using standard liner fittings: skimmers, inlets, lights, sumps and linerlock.
The team start by gluing felt underlay to the base and sides of the pool. Generally they would then weld a bead to the top of the sidewalls. There is an option for a different type of fixing whereby PVC coated metal is fixed to the pool and also underneath the coping stones. In this instance the liner is then welded directly onto the metal profile. This system is particularly useful when renovating old pools especially when it is important not to disturb the coping stones.
The sidewall is then clipped into the linerlock (or welded to the metal profile) and cut to the correct depth. The base of the pool can now be lined and the sidewalls welded to the base. The material is overlapped by 50mm and welded with a hot air gun.
All welds are scribe-tested and sealed with liquid PVC mastic.
All our in-house Aquaflex teams are qualified Renolit approved installers. We never use sub-contractors for Site Lining.
Site Lining – Ceramics Materials from Alkorplan
A swimming pool lining with the aesthetics of the ancient temples of classical Greece and all the advantages that a reinforced membrane offers.
Alkorplan Ceramics is a reinforced membrane with the relief and appearance of ceramic mosaic inspired by Greek mythology. Necessarily thicker than a traditional membrane in order to achieve the effect, Alkorplan Ceramics is one of the most resistant, impermeable and lasting linings on the market.
The four models take their names from 4 ancient Greek Goddesses:
