    Bottom rails for unknown pool

    Hi all, I have a 18ft round 48" high pool I bought from someone last year. The bottom rails were rusted out and having a very difficult time finding new ones. There are no markings on the pool and the the guy I got it from had it when he bought the house, so no idea of who's pool it is.

    Rails are 5/8" wide, 3/4" deep and 52 1/2" long measured along outside curve.

    Looking for a full set for the bottom, Top rails are just fine. Any help would be very welcome as i have run around all over with no luck!

    Thanks

    Bill

    The only thing you can really do is try and contact the guy you bought it from and hope he remembers the brand. Right now, its a the needle in a haystack dilemma, as too many different kinds are made over the years.

    Can you take a pic of the pool walls and end caps to post up. We may be able to identify the pool n get you the info for the right parts.

    Thanks, I will take some pics tonight.

    The guy I bought the pool from doesn't know the make either as the pool was there when he bought the house

    Looks like a old Leisure bay from Rec Warehouse.. My uprights and footings look like yours. I had no luck with rec in finding any parts. I lucked up and found another donor pool for parts, and a free deck.

    I have seen some rails for sale with the same profile and 5/8" x 3/4" however the length was more like 55". could I buy them and cut them down, or would the curvature be wrong?
