Hi All, I'm new to the forum, and came across TFP with some internet searching. I purchased my pool used and thought it was in good shape until I started to install it a few days ago. there are plastic "feet" on the bottom of the risers that act as a base plate to hold the rails in place. a few of them the bracket where the rails connect have broken off. I cannot find the make or model of the pool and have no idea where to purchase replacement "feet" I have visited multiple pool companies that are local and they all have told me that they can't do anything for me without the model of the pool. The bottom of the foot has 26989 champ on the bottom of it, but i was told that is just a color code.
Can I fabricate some metal brackets and bolt them on the bottom of the "feet" to hold th rail into place or is that not a good idea?
Also, the place where I'm installing the pool is pretty level and I put sand in it like I was instructed. I have let it rain on it and tamped it multiple times, the sand still takes foot prints as well as as runoff when steeping on the edges... How do I get the sand to stay put?
Thanks again! Sorry for all of the "noob" questions. I am installing it now because I am having a fence that is going to but up against it and the fence is scheduled for install on friday. I'm only planning on filling the pool maybe half way for this year and will completely fill it come spring.
