    need some advise from doughboy owners

    Ok I got the site all level and blocks in. Just test fitting the bottom rail again. Did anyone mark 12' on a string and try and get the ring round or did you just put all the rail sections into the plates up to the stop then put the wall in and adjust from there? Just asking for now soon am going to rent the backhoe to dig down the deep end.

    We did the string thing and used a laser level. SIL who builds houses put our pool in,( his first pool install.) We tried to dig out the center of our pool, but in the end it wasn't that much. If we ever replace the liner we'll have the pros do it and do the deep end correctly. But for now its just fine. Better than putting up and taking down the Intex. Good Luck, Kimrst

    Did you see any of the bottom rail during the install. Just wondering if all the rails were against the plate stops ?
