    Best Place to get an In-Ground Liner

    I searched around a bit, but I guess I'm just feeling a little overwhelmed so new topic.

    What's the best place to get an in-ground liner?
    What qualities should I be looking for? What gauge? Virgin vinyl?
    Will I have to remeasure or should I just use the original measurements?

    I have a 20x40 Esther Williams pool. Deep end, diagonal corners. I have all of the original documentation as far as measurements. My dad put it in originally and I purchased the home from him a few years ago. It's time for the third liner. I don't care what it looks like. Since I'm pretty sure I'll be living here a while I want a good liner. It has aluminum walls. Beaded liner hook.

    The corners tended to come out on the last liners. Should I add a little to the diagonal dimensions to prevent this? My dad was also talking about putting some foam on the bottom. Good idea or not?

    I really need to know what I'm looking for here. Summer is almost here in Wisconsin.

    Do you plan to install it yourself, or do you want the dealer to install it also? Above ground pools are pretty much standard sizes. You will want a stretchable liner to accommodate the deep end, but I am sure you could order a custom liner if you want.

    I assume you are considering installing wall foam? There are some who claim if provides a little extra heat retention. I don't know if it does or not.

    If you go down to the bottom left of this page and do a google search for "replacement liners" you should be able to pull up several threads where liner characteristics are discussed.

    Self install. I helped put this one in 10+ years ago. Wall foam is a good idea. Would I have to subtract the wall foam out from the dimensions?
