WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE YOU BUY
Before you can order a new pool liner for your above ground pool you must first determine the type of liner you already have. To do this you’ll need to look under the top rail or pool coping which surrounds the perimeter of your pool. If you can’t get a good look under the top rail or pool coping you may need to remove it.
Vinyl pool copings are usually screwed into your pool wall. Find and remove the screws in a small section so you can pry up the coping and look underneath to determine your type of liner. Be careful doing this. Most pools have a 6-8″ shelf at the top of the pool wall that might be fragile.
Once you have exposed the top rail/coping then you’ll need to take a look at how the liner is attached to the pool wall. The way it is attached will determine whether you have an overlap, beaded or U/J bead liner.
