Smartline Boulder Swirl 24-Foot Round Liner | Overlap Style | 48-to-52-Inch Wall Height | 25 Gauge Virgin Vinyl | Designed for Steel Sided Above-Ground Swimming Pools
- MEASURE TWICE, BUY ONCE – Whether installing for the first time, or replacing an existing liner, the Boulder Swirl pattern offers durability while not breaking the bank. Be sure to check the measurements of your swimming pool to assure the correct size is purchased. Pool height is determined by measuring the outside wall from the ground to underneath the top rail. Round pool size is determined by measuring from the center point wall to wall in order to obtain the diameter.
- PRETTY PLEASING PATTERN - Blue rocks top the swirling water backdrop with the Boulder Swirl pattern. The North American cut material is hand-folded to prevent permanent creasing and excess wrinkling. Before installing, lay the liner out in the sun for a minimum of one hour to warm up the vinyl ensuring it is able to stretch when adding water. The best temperatures to install would be between 70-80 degrees.
- NO TROUBLE TO INSTALL - Overlap liners are draped over the walls of the pool during the installation process. Once the bottom seam is even near the cove, the liner is ready to be secured. This material is held in place through the use of coping strips prior to putting the top rails back onto the pool. Bead receivers are not needed for this type of liner. The liner is made to work with pools which have a flat bottom and wall heights of 48” or 52”. ***Will not work with Intex or Pop-Up pools***
- STAY COOL IN THE POOL – Enjoy the warm weather while spending quality time with family and friends. Your backyard aboveground pool will surely become the place to be during those hot summer days. Stay cool in more ways than one with the Boulder Swirl liner.

The layers are made of an acrylic top coat, a UV resistant print layer, and a 100% virgin vinyl base. This material is then welded and cut for a flawless fit and finish. A 25-year limited warranty is included protecting against defects in material and workmanship.

Chicago Seniors of All Incomes and Abilities Can Get Discounts and Access Special Services
Chicago ranks 10th in a top-50-cities-for-seniors list. That's for all seniors, not just retired people. So it ain't just about golf courses and swimming pools. Here are a few reasons why.
Chicago ranked 10th, after places like Portland, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and--surprising to me--New York and Boston, in a recent Bankers Life and Casualty survey of good senior cities, San Francisco was the only California city to make the list, and it ranked #3. The list of factors evaluated to create the ranking was fascinating. Naturally it included things like housing and consumer costs, taxes, employment, doctor-to-patient ratios, and--critical for big-city living--availability of public transportation and special transport services. But it also counted cultural/social opportunities and environmental factors (air quality, sunshine, etc.).
Now let me tell you what I've personally discovered about senior living in Chicago. Did you know that low-income seniors may be able to rent an apartment in a beautiful, rehabbed senior building located in the heart of two of the coolest neighborhoods in Chicago? That and several other locations are operated and partially subsidized by the Chicago Housing Authority.
Did you know that senior citizens can ride the CTA bus and train system at reduced rates or even free? Did you know that disabled elderly can ride the bus and train system with special provisions for wheelchairs and other disability aids? I've seen bus drivers wait nearly 5 minutes for a wheelchair-bound person to board and get secured in the provided restraints (to keep the chair from rolling)--and the driver didn't even act impatient. Did you know disabled seniors also have the option to qualify for subsidized door-to-door shared-ride transport? Visit RTA's accessibility web pages.
Your alderman may offer special, affordable events for the elderly. Check to see if your ward has an email list you can sign up for. A number of entertainment options in the city occasionally offer a limited number of free tickets to events and performances to residents of senior housing. Some agencies in the city offer homemaker assistance to qualified seniors who need help. Check out the city's Area Agency on Aging web page. You never know what you might qualify for. Don't hesitate to ask your alderman to give you some guidance.
I always wanted to retire in the city but wondered if I'd ever be able to afford it. I feel incredibly lucky to have the chance to do it in a city like Chicago that really cares for its senior citizens.
