    Upright damage ... is this dangerous?

    Hi all,

    First post, thanks for the great forum!

    Like many, I had some damage this winter due to the heavy snow.
    I had to cut my cover and let it fall in, but I got to it too late and suffered some buckling of a few uprights.

    4 uprights have bent, the worst of the damage is shown in 2 att pics.

    Pool is full and stable, AFAIK, but I don't want to take any risks.

    What do you think?

    Thanks,
    PB

    It should be fine. If you can find replacement uprights for your pool, I would go ahead and do so.

    Thanks, Casey.

    Pool is 20+ old so may be hard to find parts or not worth it ... I"ll do some looking.

    Thanks,
    PB

    Are the post close together? If not, you should be fine. It's probably mainly cosmetic at this point but I'd keep an eye on it.

    The uprights are all on the same side, in a row.

    It's a Sharkline/Wilbar ... any idea on where to get parts?

    Thanks again,
    PB
