What are the different types of beaded pool liners?

The different types of beaded pool liners include standard: J-hook bead, EZ-bead, Duo bead, Uni bead, Kayak/Fantasea bead, Esther Williams/Johnny Weismeuller bead and Wilkes bead.

  • Standard beaded pool liner— designed to slip into a standard liner bead track, which lines the top of the pool wall.
  • J-Hook beaded pool liner— a liner bead that can be used as is, with no bead receiver.
  • EZ-bead— two beads in one; it can be used as a standard bead that fastens into a bead receiver on the pool wall.
  • Duo bead— has two different methods by which it can be used: folded or unfolded.
  • Unibead— includes both a J-hook & standard bead.
  • Kayak / FantaSea bead— designed for Kayak pools only, and will only fit into the standard Kayak bead receiver.
  • Esther Williams/Johnny Weismeuller bead— larger, thicker beads that will not fit into standard bead receiver tracks.
  • Wilkes bead— a specific bead intended only for Wilkes brand pools. It resembles a J-hook, but much smaller.
