    Advice please!!

    Hi, new here to the forum and hope ya'll can offer some suggestions

    Had a 24' round abg that was about 15-20 yrs old that the walls finally gave way and rusted out...have a really nice 2 level deck, the upper level going all the way around the pool 6-8ft pool guy says I needed to find one the exact size to fit that space..

    well, my cousin has one that 's just been up one season, and he's selling it to me...His kids moved out and he and his wife just don't use the is a 24' round 52"...mine was a 48"...pool guy says this is not a problem, due to the fact that I have about 2-3 available inches of space if the "trim" boards are taken away from the edges...then they can be replaced with more trim to make the edges flush...

    OK, all that to ask this...So, we started taking the new pool down to dis-assemble and I really think his top rails are 8" and not 6" like mine!! now, I'm thinking this may not work!!! EEEEEK

    Is there a way to make it fit without having to destroy the deck??? the support pillars of the deck are concrete set of course!!

    Please tell me there's a way to do this!!

    Not knowing how your deck goes around you pool makes it hard to even guess at a solution. Can you post a picture of the deck/top rail area?

    You'll most likely be able to modify your deck without much trouble. In fact, you may not have to modify it at all. You'll know more if you can take some good measurements.

    Ditto's with Bama, get some rope and spray paint and create everything on the ground ahead of time so you know what your up against. Don't just try to visualize and start building things, it you measure and paint it out then you can gauge how the deck will be impacted.
    Also, it's possible you could have some gaps, I think it would be a challenge to get a new pool up in the exact same spot, so you may have to extend a few deck boards.
