Doughboy Round 24' Needs New Liner
(Middlesex Co NJ)
I have a 24' round Doughboy pool and it needs a new liner. I'm thinking of buying a Doughboy expandable liner because it sounds like that liner would have the least number of wrinkles.
Because of the high price of that liner (about $1,000) I'm contemplating trying to install the liner myself, with the help of my family. I have the instruction sheet from the original Doughboy installation and I intend to try using their instructions.
Am I nuts for trying to save some Dough by trying to install the Dough myself? Will I be successful or will I regret not getting a pro to do it? I am somewhat handy.
If you are somewhat handy you should be just fine. I would suggest looking at the photos on this site to go along with the Doughboy instructions, between the two you should be just fine.
You did not say whether your pool has a deep area or not. If not, I would use the Doughboy UD liner. The plane blue, 20 mil, Uniform Depth liner from Doughboy is my all time favorite liner. It will save you money, it will go in just as nice and will last just as long.
