A beaded liner will have a thick bead or lip of vinyl around the top of the liner. This bead will fit into a track which is made to receive the bead at the top edge of your pool. To replace it you simply pull out the old one an insert the new. There is a little more to it, but as far as the bead is concerned that is all you have to do with it. Overlap liners are harder to install because there is no bead so you don't know where the correct height is. You overlap the liner over the top edge of the swimming pool and clamp it in place with a piece of plastic. A beaded liner is harder to measure but easier to install and a over lapping liner is just the opposite because you are constantly adjusting the plastic clamps.

Is it difficult to change from overlap liner to beaded liner?

There is no more difficulty involved in changing your overlap liner to a beaded liner, then there is in just replacing your overlap liner. The initial requirement of taking off the top rails or top seats, to take your old liner out is still needed. the difference would be, when placing your new beaded liner in your pool, depends on whitch bead you have. There are 2 kinds of beaded liners, a "U" bead that requires you have a track that rims the top of your poll wall so it can be hooked into that track and a "J" bead that simply hangs on the top of your pool wall. There is a liner that is called a uni-bead that has both of these beads on the one liner and you can choose which one to be used. The process of changing out from a overlap to a beaded is no more work then changing out the overlap to a new overlap. One "pro" for the "U" bead liner is that there is a chance, that when you have to change that liner out in the future you might not have to take the top rails off. If there is enough space for your fingers to get in where the bead track is then you can snap it into the track with less work of removing the top part of the pool. The beaded liners also do not require any coping along the top of the liner.
