Artesian Pool

by Tracy
(Indiana)

We have an Artesian Pool (Seville) that is a 30ft round above ground pool that has 54" walls with J Track Eclipse (perm 30) Liner. The pool is 12 years old and needs a new liner.

Looking online is very confusing on what to buy. I was told that there was a difference in ML vs GA. and that the ML is better to buy. Most places tell the gauge and not the ML so how do you know what you are buying?

Is it better to buy a liner online yourself, but who is the best place to buy from? Very confusing! What exactly should I be looking for and where is a good place to buy from, online or in store?
Thank you

Hi Tracy. You might try In The Swim, they have liner experts that can help you match a liner to your pool. You need the correct size and the correct bead style.

Gauge and Mil are just two different ways of measuring the thickness of a liner. A 20 ga liner is equal to a 25 mil liner.

Most all online liners are measured in mil with 20 being very thin. Get the 25 and you will be just fine.

25 Gauge Pool Liner

by Sherry
(Monroe, NC)

There are 20 and 25 gauge liners for above ground pools. What is the best way to go? Would it make a big difference?

Prices are increased about $40 more for the 25 gauge depending on size of pool.

They also have Expandable liners.

We have a 48" pool and are making a hole in a certain area for 5'. Should we get the "Expandable liner"?

Thanks!



Hi Sherry. There are 20 and 25 gauge liners sold online and there are also 20 mil and 25 mil above ground pool liners sold by many pool manufacturers. A 25 gauge liner is about the same thickness as a 20 mil liner. The 25 gauge liner is just fine and would be my choice. A 20 gauge liner is just way to thin in my opinion.

You would need an expandable liner if you digging out any deeper than a few inches. Most uniform depth overlap liners have no problem being stretched into a pool that has been dug out a little. Anything over six inches would be considered a deep end and should have an expandable liner.

These pages might help a little with your above ground pool liner installation.
