I am in the middle of trying to bring my pool back from the dead. One step is a new liner.
Found the place I want to order from (I can afford) ... but have a couple issues.
I am rather partial to blue...always sorta thought that was the way it was supposed to be.
The place I am looking at to buy the liner from has a couple 27Mil liners but they are gray. The blue liners they have (that are in my price range) are only 20Mil. I did a search on this and have seen some responses. Typically I read that thicker is better, but harder to install. Question is, how much better? If there is a real significant difference in the two that makes the thickness more important than the color, then this is a no-brainer.
My pool has steel walls and what looks to my uneducated eyes as a sand/portland base. The walls are smooth (and anywhere there might be rust I can sand to smooth and paint prior to reinstall. I have 2 70# boxers I expect will end up in the pool at some point...so there is some concern about nails and vinyl.
I guess Im looking for someone to step up and tell me what I should do.
Also, I have found a ton of pics of blue liners installed with water...but having a hard time finding gray samples to look at. Would make it a bit easier a sell to the wife if I end up going with the thicker liner color.
Thanks for the help.
