Liner for Esther Williams Pool

by Linda
(Holtsville, NY)

I have a 1974 Esther Williams above ground pool, 15'X30', however, when we measured the pool for a replacement liner it measured 16' x 31' and my Swimline beaded replacement liner does not fit, it is 15'x30'.

Any suggestions on what liner I can use. The pool is extruded aluminum and still in good condition.

Hi Linda.

Getting the correct size liner is extremely important, especially with a beaded liner. There is little room for error with these. Since 16' x 31' is an odd size I would double check the measurements. 16' x 32' is a common size if you think you are close to that dimension.

The next alternative if you need a 16' x 31' liner is to have one made. It's not a cheap process but it's better than trying to install the wrong size liner.

I have since spoke to an installer and he said that I could use the 15'x30' that he will install it in the sun. He said it is the right liner for my pool. The pool actually measures 15'6"x30'10".


I would agree with him, done under direct sunlight the liner should fit. Hope it works out for you.

Artesian pool liner
by: Anonymous

We have a similar situation. We have an Artesian above ground: 16'x31' with 52" walls, beaded. This pool is at our rental property and we just do not want to spend a lot. Wanting to see how the install of the 15x30 went - did it work?
