GLI has six new patterns this year, discontinued two. All but a few are now offered in "Full Floor" patterns, meaning without a tile border, at no extra charge. Sure-Step (textured for vinyl covered steps) is now available to match nearly all patterns, in addition to blue and white. GLI does a good job with Sure-Step, even with patterns like the Ocean Beach (my personal favorite) where you want the tile on the steps to make sense. There are a lot of possibilities with the GLI collection, and for the most part, you can get the look you want, without a lot of extra cost. The Signature Plus series is a particularly good buy, because they are 28 mil for the same price as the Destination and Signature series.
GLI is now using what they call G-Fusion, which they claim is a better seam. There was nothing wrong with their old seams, I only had one fail, ever. What it really is, is an attempt to compete with another major brand, who calls their seam invisible. Well, they sort of are, but only from one direction.
While the price of petroleum prices, and, therefore, the price of raw vinyl materials has dropped, finished product seem to be rising. In GLI's case this is probably to help offset the cost of the new equipment needed to modernize their processes. I suppose we need to brace ourselves, as a whole, anyway, as our nation appears to be leaning toward isolationism. This is not meant to be a political statement, but, rather, a practical reality. Oklahoma, there seems to be a desperate rush to find any way to increase taxes an fees, in an effort to compensate for lower revenues from oil, and to replace squandered resources. This, too, will drive up the costs of anything not made in Oklahoma, and we have no liner manufacturers here.
GLI has made their new brochures a bit confusing: Previously, the Destination series was standard in 20 mil, and could be upgraded to 28 mil for an extra fee. That is still true, except that now, some of the patterns are available in ONLY 28 mil, so that, if you want that pattern, you have to pay the upgrade, making them the same price as the Designer Series! They no longer call them Designer Series, rather, the blended them into the Destination Series. I suppose, with the new brochure concept, the idea is to entice customers to first choose a pattern, then discover the added cost. That puts the salesperson in an awkward position, and I don't appreciate it. To lessen the confusion, on this site, I will still place these liners under DESIGNER series at the bottom. The best buy, still, is to chose from the Signature Plus series, if you want a 28 mil. Otherwise, just remember that those in the "Designer" group are all 28 mil, and are more expensive. Truthfully, though, If I liked a pattern, and it cost extra to get the heavier liner, I would look at our other brands for something similar. After all, a liner can only be made so well, and if the other brands were not well made, they wouldn't be in our lineup, I promise.
Destination Series in ground vinyl liners are popular patterns and are standard in 20 mil thickness (at least, as we have them listed). They can be "upgraded" to 28 mil at an additional charge of about 25%. While thicker is not always necessarily better, some people prefer (and some may need) the heavier liners. If you want a heavier liner, remember that there are some great looking patterns available in the Signature Plus series that are already 28 mil. They are the same price so you might want to take a look at them. If you happen to have your heart set on one of the attractive patterns from this series, remember that most liners out there are 20 mil, so you're not getting a cheap liner, you're getting a standard liner. It is the manufacturer who determines whether a liner is "cheap" so if the manufacturer stops making top quality, we will stop selling them! If you just love a particular Destination series pattern, there's no reason to shy away, but if you want want a heavier liner, you have the option to order the upgrade.

Signature Series liners have a 28 mil wall and a 20 mil floor. The Idea behind this is that it is presumed that the walls get more wear and are more likely to be damaged. Good sales tactic, but I don't buy it. There are good reasons to use a 28/20 liner, but that isn't one of them. One good reason is the the upgrade to a 28 mil wall is free. And, a couple of them are pretty nice looking! Heavier walls are good for areas that have deep freeze-thaw cycles, like we do here in They are also good for pools where the hopper is not symmetrical, because the 20 mil bottom will stretch to fit the anomalies. . Actually, I've found that they also help with hot weather installations because it reduces the end result stretch on the walls. Since the walls are heavier, the stretch is mostly on the floor, where there is mor material to absorb it.

Signature Plus series liners feature 28 mil on both the floor and walls, for those who want a heavier liner throughout. By far our most popular liner, and my personal favorite, the Ocean Beach, is very natural and realistic looking, and is available with Sure-Step floor match textured tread. Sunset beach is a bit more blue, with a center tile that looks well with some stone themes, though the top border doesn't come across quite as naturally. Patterns like the Santa Barbara and Santa Rosa work well to hide minor variances in the top track, because they don't have rigidly defined horizontal lines. Currently, we are able to offer these liners for the same price as the Destination Series. I actually have the Ocean Beach with matching Sure-Step in my own pool. We have sold so many of them, I was kinda obligated. (Click images for a larger view)

The Designer Series liners by GLI offers something different, to emulate sand and granite textures. GLI doesn't actually call them that anymore, they call them 28 mil Destination series. Because you have no choice but to pay the 28 mil up charge, we still call them Designer series to distinguish them as higher priced. All Designer series liners are 28 mil and available with matching Sure-Step (optional). The Designer series liners are priced higher than our other GLI liners, but are good for those who don't mind the extra cost to achieve a specific look. Materials and workmanship are, as with all GLI liners, excellent. What cost extra is the design, so most people considering these patterns might want to take another look at the beautiful patterns available in the Signature Plus series! Also, there are somewhat similar patterns in our other brands. The Destination and Signature series liners, when upgraded to 28 mil, are the same price as the Designer series. Signature Plus is standard in 28 mil at the 20 mil price. ( I know, I'm kinda beating a dead horse!)
