    Top rails aren't lining up with the verticals!!! help

    Okay, there is about 12-18" of water in the pool. Bottom of the verticals are screwed on. Trying to put on the top rails now..but as we're going along...we have to move the legs over a bit to get the holes to line up for the top rail and they begin looking slanted. What gives? We can't stretch the pool out to meet the holes as its a metal wall. Where did we go wrong? Its hot!!!

    Check them with a level. You may have to go back and plumb the first one and work from there.

    You can stop SLAMing your pool when you pass the OCLT (You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & You have .5ppm CC's or less) & your water is clear.

    We got them finally! I guess there were a couple areas in the bottom on the track where the wall had dents. Thought we straightened them pretty good, but apparently it was enough to throw the top off. Ended up having to just overlap two of the rails, and the cover went on just fine. Its DONE!!!!!! Will finish filling it up tomorrow and start up the pump!
