    Beaded ( J liner ) or stanard over the edge?

    Almost ready to buy. We are putting in a 24ft rd above ground, Semi inground about 24". What would be better? The beaded style liner or the standard over the edge liner. I have been told that water can get behind the beaded style liner and the inner pool wall? Don't know, just want to do it right the first time.

    Thank

    The J hook liner comes with the bead. You can use the J hook, by slipping it over the top of the wall or taking the J hook portion off and using the track for the beaded liner. Then there is the over lap.

    I can't speak for the beaded liner with the track (although I have the track in my garage because I didn't use it) and water behind the liner... I have the J hook liner and it was really easy to install.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    When I was researching for my pool purchase I was cautioned that the beaded liner would allow salt water to reach the steel liner at the joints of the beaded liner receiver. The recommendation was to use the J-hook instead of the beaded liner. I can vouch for what Casey said "the J hook liner and it was really easy to install".
