    Using another aboveground pool to add on to other???

    Well,just wondering..Well,have been offer'd a 27 foot .Just gota get it...Would love to have a 33 ft.Was just wondering if it would be possible to take the spare pool&cut the wall&add to my pool now&add the bottom&top rail's,upper support's,etc..No it will not all look the same .But,just wondering if anyone has managed to go bigger this way.I'm just wanting the other pool for cap's&top rail for my pool now.

    It won't work since the rails and caps are curved to make a 27' circle.

    Re: Using another aboveground pool to add on to other???

    Last summer I was given the walls, top rails, and rails, etc. of a 15 by 30 above ground pool. I hadn't looked closely and hadn't tried any of the pieces. Last week-end son-in-law was working on the deck and asked what I wanted done with the "extra" pool. I explained I got it for parts. He said okay, but when we actually compared things -- guess what -- none of the pieces appear to be interchangeable.

    I was hoping they would so if the top rails or other pieces had issues we would have spares.

    My 21 round top rails are marked as 21/24. I don't know much difference between the two sizes you have in mind but I think the bigger issue will length, not diameter. It will also be dependent on how many segments were used to make the pool. I have all resin pool, if that makes a difference
