Polynesian conversion

Yes, we make liners for every brand of pool, but with the Polynesian low-hung pool, you have a unique opportunity.  This pool originally had an acrylic pool wall like a spa and a track at the bottom of the wall so the liner could be “hung” 8 inches from the floor.  Seemed like a great idea at the time.  It’s kind of a hybrid of the acrylic wall/concrete floor pools that are still built today.  You get the beauty and durability of an acrylic wall without the maintenance demands of a concrete floor.
Only problem was, it was often difficult to keep the pool from leaking around the liner bead.  They had a system that used silicone caulk in the bead track and a special 3M brand tape to try and seal it off, but it often proved impossible to stop the leaks.  Today, we still make low-hung style liners, but many people take the opportunity to convert these pools to traditional liners that snap into a track at the top of the wall.
This is definitely a project for an experienced pool contractor.  You add a side mount bead receiver to the top of the wall.  The skimmer and lights usually already have vinyl liner style face plates anyway.  There are a few challenges to converting the returns and perhaps steps to receive a liner, but it’s very doable and suddenly your liner snaps in up top like every other pool out there.  Don’t miss this opportunity
