    intex rectangle pool 12'x24'x52"

    HI everyone, I'm putting the pool up for the first time and im noticing the long sides of the pool are bowwing in quite a bit. Is this normal? And will it straighten out on it's own. It 's almost 3/4 full but it doesn't seem to be moving at all. I can try to add pictures if needed.
    thanks in adavance. Jason

    Welcome to the forum! I don't have that pool, but here is a thread that might have some info to help. Sounds like what you are seeing might be okay based on this:

    dont worry, it will straighten out. I have the 16x32x52 and it wasnt until the last couple of inches before it straightened out

    Wow, that is not what I expected! But I don't have one, so can't tell you if that is normal or not. That fact that both sides are doing makes it possible this is what people are talking about. ... hope one of the members with this pool chimes in soon.

    That's very normal it will straighten out when full of water. Do you have pavers under the legs?

    that is exactly how mine looked until it was completely full
    it is part of the weird intex design
    Even completely full it may have a slight bow to it

    half full


    almost full

    I had read enough posts about the sidewalls that the bowing didnt worry me, but the corners did.
    I thought they were going to slide out of the top rail.
    dont worry, the corners will adjust themselves as the pool gets full
    At full capacity the corners will be able to slide back & forth a little as the side walls flex with the water movement

    Did the sides straighten out once it was full?
