We purchased a used 18X34X4' doughboy oval pool with no specific installation instructions/manual included. I don't even know specific model. However, we watched a couple videos and dismantled it ourselves so want to try doing it ourselves (especially after contacting the local pool store who was not helpful and quoted a base price of 2400 to install). I have a few questions initially before beginning.
1) Is there specific online instructions anywhere, I was not able to find any?
2)Setting the foundational height of the rounded portion seems straight forward but the side supports that had the concrete block footings are set deeper but exactly how much and how far apart from the opposite side should they be set?
3)There was one skimmer installed but two cutouts at two of the opposite corners, can the location of those be altered (e.g. along the long wall instead of at the corner) to better facilitate equipment location and future decking? Should two skimmers have been installed? It was professionally installed initially so I assume it only needed one.
4) any words of wisdom from someone who has done a similar install would be appreciated.
Thanks for any assistance/advice,
