    Re: pool brand

    Got a picture of the wall pattern or the uprights, etc.? Some of the pools have very distinct styles

    Not one I've ever seen before. Keep bumping this every once in a while, maybe now that it's the busy season someone will know.

    Re: pool brand

    I surfed a bunch of the popular pool merchants online and didn't see that wall style. Are your rails, uprights and upright caps all metal or are any composit or resin? They didn't start using resin regularly until some time in after about 2000. Are you looking for replacement parts or just curious? A lot of replacement parts are interchangable except some of the Doughboy, Esther Williams and Lomarts.....

    I've seen that wall pattern before, I'll look around and see if I can dig anything up.

    Re: pool brand

    thanks guys.. i am thinking the pool is a 2004 that is what year the pump is and i think it was all bought at the same time.. i remember seeing a name that started with a v.. but i couldnt see the whole name, it was rubbed off. there is no metal on the top rails. i guess it is composite. i dont know what resin is. i am just curious to know what the brand is just incase. it might come in handy one day.

    Re: pool brand

    The uprights are the same as mine, which is a Vogue, but the wall pattern and top rail are different. I haven't been able to find that pattern yet, but I will keep looking.
    As far as the uprights go, several manufacturers probably have ones that look like yours...so I'm really sure. The wall pattern is telling though...

    Re: pool brand

    Re: pool brand

    Just searched for VP99 and look where it takes me
    I have the same pattern on the wall but my posts and rails are different.
    Metal with plastic caps. I see this is an old post.
    I don't know the make of mine either.

    Re: pool brand

    In my opinion, it doesn't matter, unless you are looking for repair parts for the risers or top rail. Based on the photos at Vogues Canadian website, they are a Wilbar company.

    That's true.
    I'm looking for a seat cap and was looking for an original.

    Re: pool brand

    Are there any markings underneath? I don't see any branding on the outside of my parts but they are stamped with part numbers and date codes underneath. Try sending Wilbar customer service an email with whatever numbers are underneath the parts, a photo of the pool, photo of the part, and their dimensions.

    Re: pool brand

    Yea, looks like just a production stamp. But that's what I was thinking.
    I cracked one pulling the steps out. It's right on the edge of the deck.
    Thanks
    Didn't want to drag up an old thread but it was kind of ironic when my top search result for "VP99 pool" was TFP.
    I'm thinking 99 is the year. It's at minimum 9 years old.
