    Well, I was waiting to let others post before I post because of the brand I recommend. Doughboy. I am putting in my second one now and no regrets ever. Great quality. Kinda expensive true, but worth it.

    I wish I would have gone for an expandable liner

    And a pad, it's not too bad but i'm noticing lumps that I didn't notice before. Maybe some sand is shifting and I'm feeling roots. There are very few wrinkles, but a few spots that probably wouldn't be as bad or even exist at all with padding.

    I have to cast my vote for Doughboy. I installed one in my mothers house in the late 80s and it's still going strong.

    Wilbar is another maker and they have several brands at different prices and styles. Sharkline and Aqualeader are two of their brands. I have had an Aqualeader (AL) for 7+ years, all above ground (meaning not buried any) and I have not had any problems. My pool has resin bottom rails, top rails and risers and caps. I did have a small amount of rust near the skimmer. I removed it and painted it when I changed my liner. A liner would normally last 15+ years but mine was chemically damaged by a puck on the floor. I no longer use pucks so this is not an issue anymore.

    If you are getting a deep end, My understanding is most of the the exandable liners are by Doughboy (DB) even if you you have a pool by another manufacturer. That's the impression I got from my local pool store but they mainly sell DB and AL.
