    Does anyone have a liner pool without the border?

    We're trying to choose a liner for our pool. This is a daunting task! It's hard for me to envision what the liner will look like under water. I'm leaning toward a darker blue liner (specifically: Tara brand Carmel or Ocean Wave or Montego Bay). If anyone can post pictures with these or similar liners I would REALLY appreciate it.

    I don't love any of the borders on these liners. What are your thoughts about doing a liner pool without the border? Thanks so much!!

    I think no border would look great, wish i had done it. I don't know what they would look like years down the road if any fading took place.

    I am assuming you have done this but on Tara website they have real pictures of pools with the liners in them. You just have to choose the liner wanted and hit go and it shows real life pictures. Here is the link

    We have just installed a pool with a Blue Granite liner and no border. We really like the look, and our pool builder actually suggested going with no border as well. It gives a clean look to the pool. Wish I had a picutre handy to show. Will try to post one later.

    We got a liner without a border. There were fewer patterns to choose from without borders, but still a reasonably good selection.

    Thank you. Yes, I did look at that but it's still hard for me to visualize how it will look with such a small image.

    How much extra does it cost to have full floor pattern all the way up? I'm doing that with a Latham liner.

    Thanks! I thought I read there may be an up charge before. I signed my pool contract today, and my builder said there was, and he'd let me know the amount. Obviously, I don't want to pay for something that is bogus.

    We just signed contract the other day ,in the beginning they told us there would be an up charge for no border ,now they told us the company will give us the same price ,no up charge .picking the color is the hardest part.We (me mostly ) have been all over the place from the darkest to the lightest. still havent decided yet .Hubby likes crystal and my only concern is the lighter color will fade faster .
