Above Ground Pool Bottom Rail
Where can I find replacement bottom rails for a 24' above ground pool? Do you know anyone that sells the bottom metal wall track?
Hi Danelle. The pool you have is a Hub pool. If any of your local pool stores are familiar with if they may be able to order parts. The inside lip on these bottom rails is a little higher than the outside. They have pretty much the same shape as a Doughboy bottom rail.
A Doughboy dealer should be easy enough to find and they could order these for you. Make sure you get the bottom rails for a 24' pool. Every size pool has a slightly different arc build into the bottom rails. Any 24' bottom rails should work, they may not fit exactly like the ones you have but they could be made to work.
They lengths may be slightly different. If they are shorter you would need to allow a little more gap at each footplate. If they are longer than your original ones I would cut them down to size and use the gap shown in your picture. The gap between rails is used as an adjustment and can be increased or decreased as needed to make the wall fit. Changes to the bottom rail gap should be made at each footplate, not just the last one or two to make the wall fit.
Online there is this place. asahiparts.com Take a look and see if you think these bottom rails might work. They do not have the high inner lip but they could easily be adapted to work for you. Once the bottom rails are in the footplates pliers can be used to pinch the metal on the footplate enough to hold them snug.
