How to Replace an Overlap Swimming Pool Liner

An Overlap Swimming Pool Liner is simply a vinyl liner that is used with an above ground swimming pool. The liner is held in place under your top rail with coping strips. These types of liners are the most economical and fit a majority of above ground pools.
