I am in need of a new liner and am going to install myself (with friends, who I bribe with beer actually - thanks for the suggestion Casey!)
Some of my initial questions:
1. Reading some old threads on here, I came across a lot of strong suggestions to go with a beaded liner. I see the advantage of not having to remove the top railing for the NEXT replacement, but I presume that I would have to do so for this one given that I currently have an overlap liner. Additionally it seems the choices are more limited and cost is higher (particularly given that I would also need to purchase the track) and I am unsure if my pool would last until the next liner change in any case as I am starting to see rust at the bottom of the walls. General thoughts and experience here?
2. The skimmer and return locations are less than ideal, kind of in a tight spot next to the deck stairs. I am contemplating moving them, could I just flip locations between the wall with the current spots cut out and the next one over?
3. Is there a website that shows good pictures of liners actually in the pool? (Many that pop near the top of google simply show a square so hard to tell where the top design fades into blue and/or what the bottom looks like)
4. Lastly - skimmer seems fine, though there is a small crack in the plastic trim piece on the water side of the wall, though it does not leak, I assume I can just replace this part, or should I just replace the whole things since I'm already into doing some upgrades?
