It depends on the pool, but it appears that on average they run around 20 Gauge, or the slightly thicker 20 Mil. Both of these are roughly .5 mm or .02 inch. 25 Mil/Gauge is thicker, and usually carry a better warranty.

What is better plaster or liner?

Depends on what you're looking for. A plaster pool can be drained and painted but it does crack and certain chemicals can aid in the cracking process. A gunite pool would be a better but probably a more expensive choice than plaster. The liners are great. My brothers pool is an inground pool with a liner that was installed in 1983, in a flood and hurricane zone. It has never torn, wrinkled, or lifted up in any way. In a major flood zone such as we have here in south Louisiana, a plaster pool can lift up and begin to float. The liner is also very smooth and comforting to the feet when playing in the pool. My liner was installed only 5 years ago and we have been very satisfied, although it requires a different set of chemicals. A lined pooled should never be drained completely. Either way you choose, I would suggest going with the saltwater filtration system. It turns out to be less expensive in the end. Hope this gives you some things to consider.

This is unfortunately a circuitous question since both are common names for the same product. PVC stands for PolyVinyl Chloride and this type of liner is often refered to as a "Vinyl Liner". Sometimes when someone asks for a PVC pool liner they are referring to a Commercial (reinforced for strenght and textured for slip resistance) PVC Pool Liner or PVC Pool Membrane (e.g. RenoSys is the most successfully installed North American Brand). Whereas residential PVC or Vinyl Liners are only 20 to 28 mils thick, a Commercial membrane is reinforced with a scrim and is typically 60 mils thick.

How much pool liner do you allow at top for overlap pools?

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.
