    Bent wall

    This past weekend I started my build on a 24' AG it all went well I got the wall up sand leveled inside and wall foam glued before running out of daylight. The next morning we got about 3+ inches of rain which needless to say filled the hole with about 4 inches of water. I pumped it out as soon as the rain stopped however the water had pushed the wall over on one side. Today it finally dried out enough to work but I discovered some nasty bends where the wall and bottom rails meet. My question is can I beat it back and install and be ok or is this going to cause problems as I fill the pool? I also have a few top rails that got bent any ideas on how to fix that?


    Thanks

    Any pics you can offer would help determine if you can proceed or if you should get new parts ordered. I'm thinking the wall should be ok but those top rails... I'm not sure unless you add pics of both the wall and rails.

    You should be fine to use the wall. Any real bends would be pushed out by the weight of water. Take your time putting it in it's tracks and do it on a clear day with no chance of rain or high winds. Now on to the top rails...

    Looks like a used pool? I can see it's tan lines.

    Only issue I'm having now is filling off my well is reaking havoc in my house stirring up sedimate but I can live with that as long as it's temporary

    Thanks for the help!!!!
