I have some rust showing up on the top rails of my 24 foot above ground pool and I want to repair this problem before it gets out of hand.
I have ordered an item called POR15 that will certainly stop the rust but in order to use it I have to remove the top rails for approximately a 4 hour period.
My question has to do with the safety of removing these rails.....
I don't want to drain the pool to make this repair but it looks as though the top rails are an integral part of the pool structure.
Because of this it doesn't seem feasible to remove all of the top rails at once but I was wondering about removing two at a time (across from each other).
Would removing two at a time cause any damage to the pool? As I said before, I would have to have them off of the pool for about a 4 hour period, then I could put those two back on and remove two more rails and repeat until the job is finished.
If anyone could offer some advice I would greatly appreciate it. I hope to start the project this weekend but I don't want to proceed until I know I'm not going to watch my pool collapse when I remove the rails.
Thanks in advance,
