Fort Myers’ Best Choice For Above Ground Pool Liners
Before you peel off hard earned cash for a new liner for your above ground pool, there are some important factors to consider. While it’s certainly not rocket science, there are a few things you should know about the liner that’s in your pool and what you should purchase to replace it. This page will make it easy to identify the pol liner you have and give you options for replacement as well as other considerations for installation in your Fort Myers area backyard.
Measuring Your Above Ground Pool
The first thing every pool owner should do is verify their pool size. I know this sounds ridiculous to some, but many pool owners each year order the wrong size liner. Measuring a pool only takes a minute of your time but can save you many a headache.
To measure round pools simply measure straight across the middle to the opposite side. It is good practice to measure across from two different directions just to be sure. On oval shaped pools, measure at the longest points in length and width. You should also measure the wall height on all pools as well. To do this simply measure one of the upright posts from top to bottom. Wall height measurement is very important when replacing beaded and unibead pool liners. If your pool has a deep end or deep middle, make note of the total water depth as not all liners are capable of stretching to fit.
Know Your Above Ground Pool Liner Type
Overlap Pool Liners – are easy to identify as they simply go up the inside of the pool wall and hang over on the outside, leaving several inches of excess vinyl visible. These liners are held in place with strips of plastic called liner coping strips. Overlap liners are the most affordable pool liner and can come plain or decorative and in various thicknesses. Overlap liners are made to fit 48″ 52″ or 54″ pool walls.
Unibead Pool Liners – work in most any above ground pool and are very easy to install. Unibeads attach by simply hooking onto the top of the pool wall. If using a bead track, tear off the removable hook and snap liner into the track or receiver. This stylish upgraded liner needs no additional parts for it’s use. Great waterline graphics, 20ga or thicker 25ga vinyl, 48″, 52″ and 54″ wall heights available. Note: It’s very important to measure your pool including wall height before ordering any unibead liner.
Beaded Pool Liners – work only in an above ground pool using a bead track. Beaded liners simply snap down into the bead track or bead receiver along the top of the pool wall. Because the Unibead liner is capable of doing the same thing, there is no need to stock both style liners any longer. However we do stock the Doughboy, Lomart and Embassy factory replacement beaded liners.
Expandable Pool Liners – are simply very tall overlap liners. Extra big to ensure adequate material exists to accommodate deeper swimming areas. Expandable liners allow for 2-3 feet of additional water depth, making typical above ground pools up to 6 or 7 feet deep. Deep ends and deep centers are created by dishing out the pool floor to the desired shape and depth prior to installing the expandable liner. These liners conform to your unique pool floor shape. Trim off excess material if needed. Note: Not all expandable liners are the same. Some will accommodate up to 2 feet of additional water depth while other liners can go an additional 3 feet.
Above Ground Pool Liner Accessories
This is a great section to read before setting out to install or repair your above ground pool. Get some great inside advice from our pool pros about swimming pool accessories for your pool job. This may end up saving you time, money and aggravation. To help point you in the right direction we have a list below of the most common pool or pool liner accessories. Some are lifesavers for anyone buying or building an above ground pool in Fort Myers or surrounding areas, while other are considered upgrades. But almost anywhere in Florida, moles and nutgrass can be a real issue. We always recommend getting Armor Shield pool floor pad and nutgrass killer. Having to buy a new pool liner in a month because of nutgrass or a mole is a real possibility here and an expensive lesson to learn.
We cannot say this enough, always measure your pool before ordering any pool products. This may sound ridiculous, but this one of the most common mistakes people make when working on their pool.
