What Needs to be Removed During Vinyl Liner Replacement

Vinyl Liner Replacement in St. Louis, MO

Most above-ground pools feature one of six different attachments that will need to be removed when you request a vinyl liner replacement in St. Louis, MO. To make sure you are ready for your upcoming pool liner replacement, our pool maintenance company has each of these standard attachments featured below so you can learn more about them and what they do.

Overlap Liner – Hanging over the sidewall, this liner is seen from the outside of your pool. Typically, they feature a repetitive pattern at the water level that helps to create a pleasing effect in your pool.


Regular Beaded Liner (Standard) – These liners have a bead built into the top of the liner that serves as an attachment. A bead receiver can be installed at the top of the pool wall during the installation, and the bead liner can then snap into it.

J-Hook Liner – Featuring a bead that is shaped like a hook, these liners are very similar to the regular beaded liner in that they are installed at the top of the pool wall. Unlike beaded liners, however, the j-hook is installed directly onto the wall without the need for a bead receiver.


Uni-Bead Liner – Equipped with a universal bead, this is a liner that works with both j-hook liners as well as regular bead (standard) liners. A few quick adjustments will make this liner work perfectly for your needs.

EZ-Bead Liner – Also known as the “multi-bead liner,” the EZ-bead is an improvement on the uni-bead liner. How? Because it is constructed to work with both j-hook and regular bead liners (standard) without any adjustments needed.


Johnny Weissmuller & Ester Williams Liner – These liners were explicitly made for older aluminum-style pools popular in the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s.
