A New Way to Line the Pool - Another Recycling Breakthrough?

photo of recycled pool linersGreen usually isn't a word you want to hear in association with pools, but Repurposed Materials might have a way to change your mind about that.

With a motto like "Repurposing and reusing waste and byproducts of industry," you know this company is as green as it gets. Unlike most recycled materials, however, the products sold through Repurposed Materials come ready to use, just the way they are.

Interestingly enough, one of the company's products is huge sheets of repurposed billboard advertising vinyl in 20 mil thickness, the very dimension used in swimming pool liners.

Which begs the question: could the colorful billboard vinyl become pool liner vinyl? We'll leave that question to the industry's green-minded entrepreneurs.

"The vinyls are in surprisingly good and consistent quality for being a used material," founder Damon Carson says.
