This guide is Part 2 of a series on installing a basic steel above ground pool. It shows you how to erect the Wall of an Above Ground Pool. We assume that you have completed Part 1 - assembling the bottom rails. These instructions may vary according to your pool model so consult your owner's manual for any variations.
A quick warning: DO NOT erect your pool wall on a windy day. The Wall is a large surface and will get away from you and could fold leaving a long crease. This crease will not come out and will be a weak point in your Wall.
Position the Wall so that seam is on a Base Plate.
After you have completely inserted the base of the Wall into the Base Rail, the two ends of the Wall should overlay slightly and the holes in the ends of the Wall should line up. Also the seam in the Wall should line up in the center of the Base Plate. With the seam in the center of the Base Plate, you will be able to cover the seam with a Vertical Upright.
Place bolts thru both Joiner Bars and holes in each end of the Wall. Place the head of bolt on the inside - nut on the outside. Do every other bolt loose first then fill in the rest of the bolts and tighten. Use your pool ladder to get inside your pool to secure the lower bolts. Place 3 layers of duct tape over the inside joiner to help protect the liner.
