Above Ground Swimming Pool Liners

There are many elements that go into the design of an above ground swimming pool. One of the most important parts of these types of pools are liners. Swimming pool liners are used to cover the entire inside surface of the pool. They are created out of vinyl and are made to protect the floor and walls of the pool from damage. Liners are designed to prevent the frame of the pool from becoming damaged, helping it to be durable and usable for many years.

When purchasing above ground pool liners, it is important to buy one that fits the size of the pool it is being installed in. Liners come in many different shapes and sizes to fit swimming pools of any size perfectly. Using an improperly fitted liner will cause damage to both the liner and to the frame of the swimming pool, making it extremely important that the right size is purchased and installed. Most liners last for about eight to ten years before having to be replaced, although some may last longer with proper care, while others may become damaged and need to be replaced sooner. Liners can be purchased when an old liner has worn out or just to give an above ground pool a makeover.

There are many different choices available when it comes to swimming pool liners. In addition to sizes, there are also different thicknesses of the vinyl. Thicker liners are typically more durable and do not fade from constant sun and chemical exposure. Investing in a thicker pool liner will allow an owner to go for longer periods without having to replace their liner.

In addition to thickness, patterns are also another difference that are found in liners for above ground pools. Varying shades of blue from light to dark are available, as well as fun patterns such as an under the sea theme or mosaic pattern. Changing the liner to a different pattern is an easy way that many people give their pool a whole new look.

There are several different types of pool liners that can be installed in different ways. One of the most popular types that is easy to install is an overlap pool liner. Overlap pool liners are installed by stretching the liner over the walls of the pool, then covering the excess liner with a flat plastic strip that is known as a coping strip which attaches the liner tightly to the wall. Other types of liners for above ground pools include beaded liners, which is installed into a track or channel, and uni-bead liners which use J-hooks to attach the liner to the walls, holding the liner snugly in place. All liners made specifically for above ground pools work the same in helping to keep a pool free of damage and safe to swim in.

Shopping with a reputable pool supply dealer is necessary in order to find the best selection of liners for the best prices. Knowledgeable staff members can help any above ground pool owner pick the liner that will work best for their own needs, while perfectly fitting the size and shape of their pool. Buying a high quality liner will help a pool last for many years, providing fun in the sun every single summer while also helping keep the pool looking absolutely clear and beautiful all year long.
