We are in the process of recessing a Copper Canyon model Doughboy. I am looking to do a custom liner and am unclear on the recommended mil. Can I do a 28 mil liner intended for an in-ground pool? I prefer the custom patterns and not sure if this would be too heavy for an above ground pool that we are sinking.

I have a 25 mil liner in a recessed Doughboy. Ours is an autumn breeze with their Madrid beaded liner. Why don’t you want to use a doughboy liner? Just wondering because our local pool guy uses their liners in all pools because he insists their the best quality liner with the best warranties.

Thank you Coveys. We are looking for more of a teal looking water to go with our CA landscaping. Want it to look more like a swimming hole or pond. Our installer too is recommending doughboy because of the high quality. Madrid looks like a great option if I can't find something aligned with the esthetic of the rest the yard.

Understood. We live in FL and love it because it’s a baby blue color and not as hot as the darker blue that the majority of them are.
