Replacing Pool Deck Carpet
Esther Williams Pool With Deck
I have an Esther Williams above ground pool such as the one in the picture.
We were wondering if there are instructions anywhere on replacing the carpet. I'm assuming I can use any outdoor carpeting but we were concerned when it came to getting under the aluminum along the sides. Any help is appreciated.
I have never had a pool like that nor have I ever replaced the carpet on one. Hopefully a site visitor with some actual experience with this could help us out.
I have carpeted plenty of outdoor decks so I have a little knowledge that might help.
Be sure your carpet is cut exactly the way you want it before applying any glue. Be careful not to get the glue all over everything, that's my biggest problem, the glue goes every, mostly where it does not need to be.
As far as the outer edge, I would just try to reverse engineer the thing and see how it was done originally. By taking stuff apart it might all become apparent to you. If doing a factory job does not look possible, you can always cut the carpet to fit up against any existing molding and then, if needed, add some custom edging over the carpet.
