    How to find out what kind of pool I have

    Hey guys I've been posting here for a few days, went to take out the pool today and couldn't really find a model number on it. They said it was 15 yrs old, and the metal has a fake wood grain pattern on it. It's a 15x33x4ft AG and the liner was the type that fits down in a rail and clipped in like a tonneau cover for a truck. My other question is, would it be possible to use an overlap liner? When I got there, they had several sections where the liner had come out of the groove in the top trim piece, so I'm not sure if I like that style or not. From the pictures I've seen of the overlap liners, there's nothing between the metal and the rails that hold the overlap liner in place. Just curious. It would probably help to have a model number/ brand name to go with the pool, might be able to get parts and the correct liner for it. Let me know if you guys know how to determine what kind of a pool is.

    Would pictures help? I didn't find any information on the wall of the pool during teardown.

    "Wood grain sides sounds like a possible Doughboy pool to me. And yes, you can use an overlap liner.

    Here's some pictures in case they help identify what kind of pool it is. Dimensions are 15x33x4'

    Well I've looked at every part that I got with the pool, and not a single logo anywhere. You would think there would be something somewhere!

    any idea of any websites that specialize in identifying old pools or anything? I can go get close up pics of the rails and uprights if need be.

    And bottom rail from the side


    Here's the bottom plate, still white with all it's paint, go figure


    Bottom plate from inside


    Here's the two types of top plates that hold the metal top rail in place


    here's the skimmer lid


    here's the side view of the plastic rail that holds the liner in place
