Vinyl above ground swimming pool liners are measured by gauge or thickness. It's important to understand the kind of liner you need and want.
Glad you asked. A "Gauge" or "Mil." are both measurements of thickness.
A liner that is 20Mil. will probably have a 20Mil. bottom and a 15Mil. side. A 20 gauge liner will usually have a 20Mil. bottom and a 20Mil. side.
So as you can see the 20 gauge liner will probably be a little thicker. The most popular gauges for an above ground swimming pool liner are 20 and 25.
The following chart can help.
There are literally hundreds of patterns and styles from which to choose. This is not a complete list, but will give you an idea of what's available.
Good question. The answer is "kinda yes". There are many different styles. It's not like back in the day when you're relegated to a solid blue color.
You can always ask the company if they will install the liner for you.
They all want your business, but you need to remember the correct size and shape of your pool to get the right fit.
Talk to your local pool supply company, or simply go online and look at the many different styles and colors.

I think buying a brand spankin' new above ground swimming pool liner is like getting a new car. The smell and feel of that liner when it's being installed, filling up the pool, then jumping in and letting the smoothness glide under your feet.
Swimming season is great.
