    We are struggling with the overlap liner. We put the coping on, but as we fill up the water, the liner is coming out. Now we are trying again and we are having a hard time lining up the liner and the seams ? We could use help.

    I got the overlap on mistake but looking at converting from a uni hook. I understand that I would need the coping to secure it. Can I put my metal railing back on the coping to hold the pool together?

  9. Denise says:

    Our pool has previously had an overlap liner can we change to a beaded liner?

    • Pool Guru says:

      Great question! Yes, you can definitely change your overlap liner to a beaded liner! All you will need is the beaded liner of your choice, and a set of bead receiver to hold the beaded liner to your pool wall. You will install your bead receiver to the top of your bare pool wall with the “lip” or “tracking” facing the inside of your pool, and the beaded portion of the liner will snap down into the track. Please feel free to reach out directly if you have any further questions:
