Lomart Pool Parts

by Jon Foster
(White Lake, Michigan)

We were given an older above ground Lomart pool (round 18'x48"). Several of the vertical posts are beyond saving and all of the foot plates should be replaced etc. But the parts to get this pool usable again are beginning to add up to a lot more than we can/should spend on it.

If I could make some of my own replacement parts, I could save a ton of cash. I was thinking about making my own foot plates and using pressure treated 4x4's to replace all the posts.

My question is, would this be a wise decision? For the most part it looks like the vertical posts only carry a load from the top rail. The foot plates look like they hold the load for the posts and offer a very limited amount of reinforcement for the bottom track the pool wall sits in. The bottom rail doesn't even have any fasteners to keep it in place so I'm sure there's no horizontal load to be concerned with at the foot plates.

The time and materials to make these items would be far less than buying new replacement parts if we can even find everything (we've been looking for several days).

Thanks, Jon

Hi Jon.

Lomart and Doughboy are made by the same company and in many cases have similar or identical parts. Finding a dealer for either brand may be of help with ordering parts. Footplates can be made out of most anything and it is possible that one of these sites may have something you could easily adapt to your pool.

Parts For Above Ground Pools

You are very right about the structural importance of these parts. A pool that is level and round can stay up just fine without uprights and top rails. The bottom connectors are just to hold the bottom rails together, and in most cases, a place to attach the uprights.

I see nothing wrong with your plan for making the pool parts. I know it can be done and it sounds like you have some good ideas.

Lomart Top Rails

by Debbie

We just purchased a 21' round Lomart Whispering Winds swimming pool and we really love it. My question is, the top rails appear to bend easily just by leaning on them - do they make a more sturdy top rail or is there a way we can we modify what we have now?

Again, we really like the pool and want to keep it in excellent condition.

Thank you in advance for your help, Debbie.

Hi Debbie.

The easiest thing to do is just keep in mind that they are a little weak and go easy on them. Make sure they are not walked on or jumped off of. Having a pool deck that goes out over the rails could give you a place to enter the pool either by using the ladder or by jumping.

More elaborate measures might include bolting lumber or metal to the underside of the rail. As far as purchasing different rails, it might be very difficult to find ones that are compatible with your pool. I would want to sample of few for size and fit before ordering a whole set.

Lomart Midnight Clear Pool Needs Top Rails

I am looking for replacement top rails for my 21 foot pool. I was able to find them last year and they were grey in color, which was fine, we just painted them to match our pool.

The original part number was 587-1319, but i know that they had a new number for the ones I found.
I have been looking online again, but have had no luck.

Lomart Pool Rusted Parts

How do I get top stablelizer parts for my pool that have rusted? The dealer, Waller Chemical, Wheeling WV, told me that I have to contact Lomart. Lomart Pool told me that the dealer has to contact them. This stalemate has been going on for two months.

Hi

Lomart is correct, any dealer can order the parts, but you cannot buy directly from Lomart. I would try a different dealer.
