Beaded Above Ground Pool Liners
are used if your aboveground pool has and groove underneath the railing which holds the liner in place, called a bead receiver. This type of liner has a special edge that you snap into place, not overhang and trim the excess as you would with an overlap swimming pool liner, so you need to match the liner with your pool depth.

If you need a Liner for Esther Williams Pool , you most likely can use on of our Swimline Beaded Pool Liners.
