Thread: Wall bolt size

    Question Wall bolt size

    I am putting up a 24 foot pool and am in need of the wall bolts. I have searched and searched and can not find the answer of the size. I know I need 27 of them but can I just buy at the hardware store or are they special?
    I know they need to be stainless steel but can anyone tell me length and size.

    Thanks

    Should be nothing special. Mine and most I have seen are 1/4-20 x 3/4" (1/4" diameter, 20 pitch thread count, 3/4" long under the bolt head). Pan head or round head will work. Get lock washers to put under the nuts.

    Make sure the nuts are on the outside when you put them on.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Good point! Also put a couple of layers of duct tape over the screw heads on the inside.
