    The curve on the T bar for an 18' may be tighter than the curve on your existing pool. You might try locating a used 24' intex that someone is getting rid of on ebay or craigslist.

    We have several intex owners here that may have additional solutions for you.

    Hi mpknls!

    I have done some looking around and can't find any of the "T" bars for your pool. As zea3 said the curve for the 18' may be too tight for the 24', but you never know. I know the Intex Ultra Frame pools size 16' and the 20' both use the same "T" bar and there is a 4' difference in size. If the pool is still in good shape it may be worth a shot to try the 18' "T" bar on the pool.

    I would try the 18, especially if only 1...
    my old intex frame pool had a lot of play in the pipe connections, so even if slightly tighter bend should work!
