Gauge is the equivalent of a "mil" which is "thousandths" of an inch.

Hence, a 20-gauge pool liner would be 20-mil which is 20 thousandths of an inch or 0.020" = 0.02 inches. A 30-gauge liner would be 30-mils or 0.03 inches.

...

Answermost above ground pools are 20 mil and in ground liners are usually 30 mil

Most of the differences refer to the thickness of the liner in mils and the design at the top or waterline of the liner

That normally depends on where you are getting the liner from, but in most cases, you measure the pool diameter and actual pool wall height. When you order the liner, let the liner manufacturer know the liner is for an above-ground pool with an overlap liner. The liner manufacturer will then make the pool wall enough longer to allow several inches of liner material to fold over the top of the pool wall and anchor it in place with the liner locking strips.

During the actual voyage Bruce Ismay's role was simply that of a first class passenger. However, he held more clout than most passengers as he was the chairman of the White Star Liner (the liner that built the titanic).

When you say a "pool liner" I am assuming you mean a vinyl liner as normally called a liner for short. If so then no, the liner cannot and should not be painted.
