    True 90 corners on an inground vinyl pool, am I going to regret it?

    My pool is under construction. I asked the builder for 90 degree corners instead of a 6" radius. Am I going to have liner trouble? Our coping is cantilever design, so it will be encased in concrete soon. We are getting a 20mil liner.

    I would absolutely prefer radius if possible. This is just IMO, but why would you want nooks and crannies?

    The only reason for the 90 degree corner, it that I like the sharp lines for a garden pool. Definitely something I am willing to compromise for superior liner life.

    Robots do not like square corners at all. manual vacs bang the daylights out of them. Dirt, however loves square corners dearly.
