Step by Step


Step 1

Check Your Pool Manuals - Your above ground pool should have come with an owner’s manual, and an invoice (a receipt of purchase.) The owner's manual likely has a parts schematic that lists the names and part numbers of each of your pool’s components. If you can find this schematic, you can take the listed upright part number and enter it into Inyo’s parts search at the top of the page.

Step 2

Use Receipt for Model Information - If you cannot find the parts schematic, reference your pool’s invoice to find the make and model information; also, note the pool size. With the make and model of your pool, you can find your pool’s parts breakdown on Inyo’s Above Ground Pool Parts page

**Use ‘Find’ function on your browse(Ctrl+F for desktop, Find In Page for mobile users) to jump to your model’s name quicker. on your internet browser to be able to find your pool model name quicker**

Step 3

Check Your Upright for a Part Number - Check the backside of your upright for a part number. Resin verticals are likely to be stamped with a model number than steel, but it doesn’t hurt to check. If you find a part number, enter it in the search at the top of the page.

Step 4

Use Inyo’s Upright Finder - If you can provide the pool’s wall height and the uprights build material (steel or resin), we can narrow the field of possible verticals to a select few. Click to view Inyo's A/G Pool Upright Finder.

Now that we’ve narrowed down the possible options measure your upright’s overall length and width. You can then compare your upright measurements to ones listed for each vertical on the page. If you find a vertical with similar dimensions, click it to view the product description. The product page will show closeups of the upright and detailed dimensions. If the vertical matches dimensions and design, you’ve found your match.

Step 5

Contact Inyo - If you cannot find a compatible replacement upright using the above steps, you’re next best option is to contact Inyo’s above ground pool part specialists. With a few pictures of your pool, we can identify the make and model of your pool.
