    AGP light install question

    Hello all,
    I recently purchased an LED light made specifically for above ground pools. The instructions say to remove the top rail in order to install the light, which makes sense since you have to snake the cord under the top rail. My question is simply this: Do the top rails provide structural stability and is there any risk with removing one rail on a fully filled pool? I have a 27 ft venture, 17500 gallons.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    You can take the top rail off with no problem. One rail won't hurt a thing.

    Are far as I know, the rails are mainly a cosmetic feature.
