    OVERLAP J-HOOK OR BEADED LINER

    Which liner do you prefer. Overlap, J-hook, or Beaded.
    Which one is easier to installation
    Which one has better holding strength.
    How it looks. Esthetics's
    I like the overlap liner. I think it's easier to get wrinkles out. Not sure about the holding strength yet.
    My brother has the beaded liner and he said you have to have the sand level just right so that the liner will not
    end up with wrinkles.
    Your Thoughts.

    No problems at all with my beaded liner. Love it. A snap to install and nice and straight.

    Re: OVERLAP J-HOOK OR BEADED LINER

    We have a J Hook. I LIKE having the design, which lined up perfectly the first time, but was afraid of the "tearing out of the bead" issue with the beaded liners - the J Hooks/UniBeads are meant for both Jhook and beaded use, you just remove the top portion to place into the bead. We have virtually no wrinkles either - a bit but negligible amounts that are not obviously anywhere.

    I'm sure the overlaps are the easiest to install, but until they can come up with a nicer design set for them, I'm sticking with this (until we go deep end, then we have no choice)
