Above Ground Pool Directions
For Used Pool Owners
Below I have listed a few sites that offer above ground pool directions.
These would be helpful no matter what make or model of pool you have. For
more specific instructions you can always try your pool manufacturers website.
You may also want to pick up some tips on our
pool installation page.
has a couple of sets of generic instructions.
Many of these
ground pool manufactures will have a website where PDF downloads will be
available. For the most part, these instructions are all about the same.
There is not much difference from pool model to pool model when it comes to
round pools. Oval pools, on the other hand, that's a whole different
story. The brace systems can include a million parts and you better put
them together correctly.
The good news is that if you are looking for instructions for a used pool the
brace system is probably already assembled, at least for the most part.
I am often asked how to convert an oval pool with straps,
to one that will allow a deep end. It is really quite simple. You
cut out the straps and add a couple of building blocks under the brace.
You also need to add an L bracket. The brace assembly will back into the
blocks and eliminate the need for the strap. All we are doing is
duplicating the Doughboy brace system shown below. Before removing the
straps, measure the distance across from brace to brace. It's critical
this side to side measurement stay the same, even after the straps are removed.
photo shows the Doughboy brace assembly with the L bracket resting
against the 8x8x16 block. Another block can be added behind the one shown
and the connecting straps are no longer needed and a deep end can be installed.
