Double Up Above Ground Pool Walls
Buckled Above Ground Pool Wall
My pool wall buckled last winter around the bottom edge where it goes into the track. I still have a one year old pool wall that this happened to two years ago that I kept as a spare.
Can I put this wall inside the buckled wall after I straighten it out as a double wall?
Hi Gary. That is an excellent idea. Two sidewalls will last forever. The only problem I can see you having is around the top. The two walls will have to fit very tight around the top for the coping to stay in place. That could be difficult.
Another problem might be getting the inside wall to fit into the bottom track. This could be accomplished by opening up the track a little with a screw driver. Whatever it takes, the second wall needs to go into the bottom track.
The easiest way to do the top might be to snip off the top six inches of the inside wall. The edge could be hammered flat and then duct taped to the existing wall. This keeps it out of the way of the coping, rods and such.
But yes, it's a great idea and a good way to get many more years out of your pool.
