Thermal Pool-Liners

pool-modelWhat exactly thermal pool-liners do?

A thermal pool-liner is designed to keep the heat in your swimming pool, whether that be outside or inside. Having a thermal pool-liner means:

· The horrible part of getting into freezing cold water is no longer there and you now have thermal waters.

· It keeps the heat in for much longer.

· It can repair your above ground pool if you have discovered a leak.

· If you do not have a pool liner, over time the outsides of your pool may start cracking because of harsh water in the pool, the wrong or too many chemicals to keep the pool clean and many other reasons too.

· There are four different types of pool liners, and they are all really easy to install.

What are the different types of pool liners?


This type of pool liner is probably the easiest to install. This is because you can fit the liner to your pool, fold it over the edge and then pop some sort of seal beading around the edge of your pool.

One downside of having the overlap liner is that the remainder of it will of course, be hanging on the outside of your pool.

One upside of this is, if you don’t cut it and simply tuck it up underneath the seal beading (or if you’ve built up decking around your above ground pool you could simply just let it hang there) then when the liner does eventually shrink, you can release the overhang and your pool liner will be just as perfect as when you first installed it.

If you do have a built up decking around it however, you will need to remove some of the decking when releasing more of the liner.


U-Bead lining is generally designed for pools that already have a tracking around the edge. You can install this yourself, but you may be better off cost wise going for a different option if you don’t already have a track.

The U-bead works by clipping straight onto the tracking, saving you tons of time, and if your track is already installed, you wont have to take the pool or any surroundings apart as it simply just snaps in. So for example if you have built up around the pool, you won’t have to remove any surrounding decking.

So if you already have tracking on the outside rim of your pool or you prefer this idea and are willing to install that tracking, then this is the choice for you.


J-Bead lining is also another super easy one to install. It’s your typical pool liner, but around the edges it has a track molded into it.

The reason it is called a ‘J’ Bead is because with the track installed it looks like an upside down ‘J’ and you simple hook it over the edging of your pool.

It is almost impossible to get the installation of this pool-liner wrong, but one disadvantage is you will have to take the pool apart and the surroundings to install it. Once it is installed, it is probably the most reliable pool-liner that you could go for because once it is on, there’s no worrying about having to adjust it.


EZ-Bead is basically a mixture of the U-Bead and the J-Bead. You have the choice between which type of edging you would like. This is probably the most common of choices and the most popular to be sold in the US because if you’re not sure what type of edging your pool has, you know you will be safe. For example; it’s still on order and you haven’t been able to check that yet, or you just want to make sure you buy a liner that you are able to install into your pool. If those sound familiar to you, then this is the option to go for.

Another little tip for installation of pool-liners, and this applies to all types, is when you’re filling the pool once installation is complete, walk around the edges of your pool and use your feet to “tuck” the bottom edges and corners into place. Once enough water is on there the corners and edges will be securely in place.

Those options are just liners, how do I make sure I have thermal waters?

If you have already bought a lining with no insulation, don’t panic. You can simply level out the base of your pool with sand. This is a great insulation material. When it comes to the sides of the pool, before installing the liner, stick some pool insulation foam to the sides. The foam is super cheap and highly available. Then simply install the liner as described above.

So to recap, installing a pool liner will benefit you and your pool because:

1. They’re not that expensive to buy.

2. You can install them yourself simply and cost effectively.

3. They will prolong the life of your pool.

4. You can buy them in many designs, meaning your pool will look stylish.

5. They protect your pool from any harsh water or chemicals you will use to keep your pool clean.

6. Thermal pool liners will keep the heat in for longer, and if you use a heating system they will reduce your heating bill by over half.

7. If you have discovered a leak in your pool, installing a pool liner will save you having to fork out for a whole new pool, which as you know will be much more expensive than buying and installing a liner.

So there we have it, the different types of pool liners, how easy they are to install, adding thermal quality to your pool water and why having a pool-liner is of yours and your pool’s best interest!
