What is the difference between an overlap and a beaded liner?

Above Ground Pool Liner Types: The Good and the Bad

Have you ever seen a pool get built from start to finish?  I haven’t and I’ll take a wild guess and say most pool owners haven’t as well.  Even if you had your pool built with your house, the odds are you did not sit there and watch them step by step. In fact, you probably were more concerned about when you could take your first swim than seeing your pool contractor install your pool skimmers.

Although we are an online retailer, our goal at the end of the day is to provide as much information to the pool owner as possible. As we sat around our offices pondering new and exciting projects we could prepare for our customers, the idea of filming the entire process of building a pool sparked out interest. What if we could show an entire pool build, from start to finish, and create a tutorial simultaneously?
