    Full Print/No Border IG Vinyl Liner?

    Time to make a liner selection for our new pool. We are leaning towards a borderless/full print, but are slightly hesitant mainly because we just have not seen many(or any for that matter). We're wondering if there is a reason you don't see more people choosing this option. Any pics of pool with a full print liner installed as well any thoughts/comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    We chose a borderless liner mainly because my wife didn't like the border styles!

    That certainly is a nice "clean", uncluttered look. I, personally, like the look.

    Thanks for the reply and the pic. Beautiful pool! That is the clean, classic look we are hoping to achieve. Is that a solid color liner or does it actually have a print?

    It does have a print on it. I'm away for a few days, but when I get back I'll post a closer picture. It's like a mottled look.

    Sorry I haven't had a chance to post a picture, I've been away for a few days on the road...

    Anyways, here is a close up of the pattern of the liner.

    Re: Full Print/No Border IG Vinyl Liner?

    Hey, thats a nice liner... Altho, Im wondering if a printed border actually serves a functional purpose of masking a faded area of a liner above the water line once it starts to age?


    I would really like a liner like yours due to it's clean simplistic look, altho, my concern would be that over time, without a patterned border, would you start to see the seperation above and below the water line?

    A tiled pattern will fade just the same as a speckled pattern like flyboy's. It's just a fact of life.

    Re: Full Print/No Border IG Vinyl Liner?

    Yes agreed...my point was that a separate tile like pattern above the water that becomes a bit faded may not be as easily discernible against a different pattern below the water that hasn't faded. Its probably much easier to see a faded area vs non faded area when there's just one continuous pattern above and below the water. Perhaps I'm wrong.

    Re: Full Print/No Border IG Vinyl Liner?

    I was thinking that if you have a tiled border, the portion below the water will fade and the portion above will be darker (chlorine in the water bleaches the liner much more than sunlight on the dry portion). Regardless of what you do, after several years you'll have lighter color below the water line and darker above.

    Here's a link to our liner,

    and maybe some info you might find handy PRIOR to/DURING a liner replacement. We didn't like any of the liner tile styles.

    I really appreciate all the replies and pics. I am now convinced that we are going to opt for a full print liner with a cantilever edge. I'll post pics when we reach that stage. Thanks again.

    The liner we have in our pool now doesn't have a border. We've noticed over the years that a pool that doesn't have a border will "look" bigger vs. the same size pool with a border.
