BESTSELLER NO. 11 in 2020
  • 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.
  • 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. Oval pool size is determined by measuring from the center point across the longest and widest ends.
  • INSTALL IN A SNAP OR A HOOK - This 12' x 24’ oval unibead style liner works with pools with flat-bottoms measuring 52". For an overlap style pool, simply open up the j-hook portion and slip this over the pool wall. For beaded style pools, use the standard bead after removing the j-hook portion along the score or groove mark. This will leave only the standard bead which is inserted into the bead receiver opening. ***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 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.
  • UNIVERSAL GASKET SET - The included kit is for the pool’s skimmer and return. This skimmer gasket will work with either standard sized skimmers or widemouth versions. These pieces will help prevent corrosion of the pool wall and should be replaced each time a new liner is installed as they become dry over time which could cause leaks.

Shopping for a Back Yard Swimming Pool?

De-code the conflicting information available about choosing a good above-ground swimming pool for your backyard. Looking to spend wisely, choosing the correct pool wall for your needs will greatly enhance the longevity of your investment.

It's that time of season again when people are thinking about purchasing a swimming pool. Anyone who's ventured into a pool store to check pricing and gather information will testify to the fact that there is a lot of information to absorb. Here are some basics to consider:

1.) What is the track made of? Contrary to popular belief, a pool wall is not typically segmented pieces but is in fact a large continuous roll of metal. Once the ground is graded flat, the wall is opened, stood upright and put into the track in the ground. The track holds the bottom of the pool wall in place. In most cases, the track is not visible once the pool install is complete, because dirt is filled in against the base of the wall hiding the track. Since the track will be underground for the life of the pool, what the track is made of will have a large influence on how long the wall will be around in your back-yard. Tracks made of steel are cheaper but eventually rust and weaken. Tracks made of resin (the thicker the better) or aluminum will never rust and offer the best chance for the pool to be around a long time.

2.) What is the pool wall made of? Galvanized steel is the most popular, but anything made of steel has the issue of oxidation, commonly referred to as rust. Aluminum will not rust, so an aluminum wall is preferred. Aluminum is a more expensive material and it's softer than steel, so more aluminum is needed in an aluminum wall making this a more costly option.

3.) Every above-ground swimming pool has a section of wall where two holes are cut through. One hole is for the skimmer where the dirty water leaves the pool and one hole is for the return where the clean water goes back into the pool. This section of wall is most vulnerable to corrosion due to the water moving back and forth between the holes. Some pool walls will substitute this one section with a marine grade stainless steel panel in place of the steel. The stainless steel panel is highly rust resistant but keeps cost down because the rest of the wall is still galvanized steel.

4.) What are the uprights and top-rail made of? Almost every above ground pool will have uprights on the outside of the wall every four feet or so to help support the pool wall and keep it from collapsing. The top-rail is what runs along the top of the wall and connects each of the uprights. Any of these components that are made of galvanized steel will eventually rust. Uprights and top rails made of aluminum or resin will stand a much better chance of lasting longer.

So next time you walk into a pool store, be sure and pay particular attention to the components of the pool wall. The salesperson should present this information, but if they do not, do not be afraid to ask. Generally, the more aluminum or resin components in the pool wall, the more expensive the purchase will be and the longer your warranty will be. Happy shopping.
