What are expandable pool liners?

An expandable pool liner is an overlap style liner made with a 72″ wall. The extra material is used to allow the liner to rest on the bottom of any above ground pool that has a deep area (or hopper). The deep part of the pool can be either toward one end (ovals typically). It can also be in the middle of your pool (round pools typically).

For example, if your swimming pool is a 16×32 oval with a 48″ wall. You also have created a deep end by digging out one end of the pool to a depth of 24″. That would mean you would need a liner that could lie on the floor 72″ below the wall top (48″ + 24″). Expandable pool liners are made with a 72″ wall to allow exactly that. Where the pool has not been dug out the liner will overlap the top of the wall and can then be trimmed.

Often, Expandable pool liners are often called “stretch-to-fit” liners. This is a bit misleading because expandable liners don’t stretch anymore than other liners. The extra wall material is used to let the floor rest on the pool where it is deeper that the ground level. There should be no excessive stretch, in fact.
If your swimming pool has a deep area in the center of the pool (for example in round shaped pools), then the expandable pool liner will allow the floor to drop down to the dug out depth. Excess material hanging over the pool wall can easily be trimmed.
