The main factor in the longevity of any pool surface is the water chemistry. Water chemistry can effect the warranty. We recommend chemistry levels of:
Ph –7.2 to 7.4
Alkalinity - 90 to 100 ppm.
Calcium Hardness – 200 to 400 ppm.
Always use a Scale Prevention and a product that removes phosphates from the water.
