Above ground Liner description April 23, 2008

Posted by Pcpools Above Ground Pools in Above Ground Pool, liners, Pool.

OVERLAP POOL LINERS: On this type of pool, the pool liner goes up and over the top lip of the pool wall. It then comes down over the edge on the outside of the pool. This type of pool liner is normally secured with some sort of clamping method that holds it in place. Any adjustment that may be needed on the wall height of the pool liner is made by removing the lamp(s) and either letting in or pulling out more of the liner.


BEADED POOL LINERS: Beaded pool liners come in 2 sizes, 48″ & 52″ wall heights. If there is any height adjustment that needs to be made, this needs to be done by removing or building up the height of the “cove” located at the base of the pool wall within the pool. Cove is available in “wedge” shaped Styrofoam or sand can be used by compacting it into the corner where the wall meets the floor.

UNIBEAD J-HOOK POOL LINERS: Uni-bead or J-Hook pool liners have a upside down J, and just hooks on the top side of the pool wall. J-Hook pool liners can also be cut to be used as a beaded receiver

I have a question can you help me determine what pool liner I need. I have a Doughboy 560-1015, it is about 6 years and need to replace the liner. I’m unsure if I can buy other than doughboy. But your prices are great and would really like to save some money. Please help.

Thank you in advance for you time,

What is the differnce between 30 mil and 27 mil liner? Is it worth the extra money for 30 mil?

The thickness of a pool liner doesn’t always mean a longer liner life. Thickness acts as a protection against abuse by swimmers, deterioration by the sun, and the many water toys and games that go in and out of your pool. Thicker vinyl swimming pool liners are designed to take more mistreatment. A thicker vinyl pool liner usually is more expensive, but if your swimming pool sees a lot of action, knowing you have a heavier gauge liner can set your mind at ease.
Our Standard gauge liners carry a 15 yr warranty
Heavy and extra Heavy gauge liners carry a 20 or 25 yr warranty, depending on the pattern.
The warranties cover the seams of the liner.

I am trying to replace the line on my esther Williams pool.
It is about 15-20 years old and this is my first liner change. I thought it was a 24′ x 52′, beaded liner, however when the installers came, they said the pool was 22’6″ x 48″. Now I need to try and find a liner this size, do you carry custom liners? If so how long, how much, what patterns.
Thanks for your help, obviously I need it.

Do your liners fit Johnny Weissmuller pools? We need a 24′ (23’8”), 48″ round, J-hook replacement. Probably the heavier guage/ml. Thanks.

To Whom it May Concern,

I am in urgent need of a custom pool liner which I am quickly finding is very hard to come by. I am reaching out to liner retailers as well as distributors for any help in locating the right pool liner.

Listed below are the pool measurements and details.

Type – Above ground – round
Diameter – 22.5 feet (yes 22.5 feet)
Bead – Ester Williams bead
Age – approx 15 years old
Height – 48 inches

I have tried reaching out to several different retailers and installers already and so far everyone has said that they do not make or carry a liner that matches these specs.

Once again any help locating a pool liner is greatly appreciated as I’d like to enjoy at least a few days in a nice cold pool this summer.

We have a liner to be replaced. Can you replace a 15″x30″ lap over with a beaded liner? If so, how much would it cost to change over.

If you would like to convert the pool to a beaded liner you will need to get the bead receivers and the beaded liner
Here is a link to our bead receivers, you would need 20 of them according to our chart.
