How often to refelt your table depends on several factors, including the amount of use it gets, the quality of the existing felt, and the conditions in which the table is kept.

How Often to Refelt Your Table

Here’s a general guideline on how often to refelt your table

Commercial or High-Use Environments:

In other words, pool tables in commercial settings like bars, pool halls, or in places where they are used heavily. Refelting these tables might be necessary as often as every year. In these environments, the tables experience a lot of wear and tear.

Residential or Moderate-Use Environments:

For tables in homes or areas with less frequent play, refelting might be necessary every 3 to 5 years. However, this can vary greatly depending on how often the table is used and how well it is cared for.

Low-Use Environments:

In cases where the table is seldom used, it might only need to be refelted every 5 to 10 years.

It’s important to note, however, that even if a table isn’t used often, the felt can deteriorate over time due to factors like environmental factors, and general aging.

Signs That It’s Time to Refelt:

Regardless of the environment, there are some clear signs that your pool table needs new felt. These include noticeable

  • thinning of the felt
  • tears or rips
  • fading
  • consistent pilling
  • noticeable changes in the way balls roll on the table

Quality of Felt:

Of course, higher quality felts, like worsted wool, tend to last longer and require less frequent replacing than lower quality woolen felts.

Environmental Factors:

In addition, environmental conditions that can affect the lifespan of pool table felt include:

  • humidity
  • temperature fluctuations
  • exposure to sunlight

Proper care, such as using a cover when the table is not in use, can extend the life of the felt.

How Often to Refelt Your Table?

In conclusion, the need to refelt a pool table varies significantly based on usage and care. Regular inspection and maintenance can help extend the life of the felt.

However, once you start noticing signs of wear and tear or changes, it’s time to consider refelting.
