Hi there!

Our search returned the following results:

This link describes a Premier Vinyl Liner that is claimed as having
the highest quality and durability (20 yr warranty). Comes in assorted
shapes and sizes:

Here is a catalog store offering a wide range vinyl liners with
detailed descroptions of each. Liners come in a variety of sizes,
shapes, and gauges (thickness). Go to:

pools, but even if you don't have an irregularly shaped pool it is

As far as I could tell, there doesn't seem to be a concensus as far as
the "best" pool liner as there aren't any consumer review sites that

believe virgin vinyl is the softest type).

Hope this helps!

BUTYL POND LINERS are more expensive but stronger.

Here is one link on butyl liners:

Look for manufacturers time in business, quality of vinyl (regrind vs.
virgin), thickness of vinyl, and if the liner is a true custom made
unit or "off the shelf" one.  There is more. Look at this link:
