    Pressure treated dowel in base of pool railing

    Hello All,
    Have you heard of using a pressure treated dowel in the base of a pool railing to prevent it from bending/collapsing when you tighten it into the fitting.

    It sounds like a solid idea (pun intended).

    I've got a 1.9" OD with .049" wall thickness stainless railing.

    Looks like I'll need 1 13/16 dowel.

    Any thoughts or comments. Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like a plan to me. After you fit it in, you will have to drill it back out.....assuming you ever need to
