Lomart Beaded Liner
by Michelle Eades
I just recently purchased and tore down a 30' round x 52" high Lomart pool. I am needing to replace the liner (it is a beaded liner); however I am not sure about what to purchase.
I have been told by some pool dealers that only Lomart liners will fit. Then I have also been told by other dealers that any liner will fit.
Can you clear this up for me, the difference in cost is about $700.
Any liner of the same size and bead type should fit just fine. If it were me I would order an overlap liner and some coping strips and not use a beaded liner. With overlap liners you don't have to worry about the liner fitting the pool perfectly, they can all be made to look nice. And they are a lot cheaper.
The only possible reason I would put a beaded liner back in the pool is if you planned on covering the top rails with a deck. Beaded liners are great if you never want to take the top rails off the pool again, otherwise I don't have much use for them.
