George Stencil

Founder / Retired

The owner of Carolina pool Liners, George Stencel, has worked in the pool industry for over 25 years installing both inground pools and commercial PVC pool liners. George and his team have been installing commercial grade PVC pool liners for over 25 years, in hundreds of pools throughout the United States.

While working for Sika Sarnafil USA in the early nineties, George was instrumental in developing their pool lining system. After Sarnafil exited the pool lining business, George left and started Membrane Concepts, in 1996 which he sold before moving to North Carolina and starting Carolina Pool Liners.


We had the pleasure of working with Caroline Pool Liners to replace the liner at one of our pools at our hotel. George and his team were a pleasure to work with from start to finish and the liner came out great!

We had issues with water loss with our therapy pools at our spa, George and his team were able to come in and replace all of our liners and we have not had an issue since. Their team was top notch and professional and results speak for themselves.
