    pool sand base

    What should the measurement be from the top of the sand base to top of where uni-bead liner overlaps in a 27'X52" Aboveground pool? Thanks!

    2-3 inch sand base is typical and is measured from the bottom of the lower pool wall tracks (i.e. if you are using pavers under your vertical supports, from the top of the pavers).

    So it should only measure 49 to 50 inches?

    Yes, that is common if it is a 52" wall, though it you will still need to build a sand cove (or use foam coves) out a the wall.
