Mine is a 25 gauge beaded liner. I’m happy with it, but you could step it up to 30 gauge if you wanted to.

I personally don’t like the overlap liners. It’s just so much easier to hang the beaded type.

So so since my current liner over hangs over the outside of the outside pool wall, can I still use a beaded liner? Are the beaded liner easier to install and do I use all my existing hardware or is there something I need to do differently? This is what I see when I pull the top plates off

You can also purchase bead receiver if the liner you want only comes beaded.

I appreciate the input and I think I understand but need to make sure I understand what is exactly need, I am ready to purchase a liner now and want the best liner option and accessories if needed. So do I go with a beaded liner with bead receiver or j hook?

See this thread for some discussion about pros and cons.


Personally I would go J Hook (Which probably means purchasing a uni-bead since I think they are more common) when I replace mine. But I have an overlap so no personal experience with either.

Ok, I’m assuming the liner you want comes in both styles. Unibead/j hook is most versatile. If you don’t have bead track, it hooks over your pool wall. If you do have bead track, the hook can be removed so you can use it as a bead liner.
