    who does leveling groung service for above ground pool in bergen county NJ?

    I used a company out of wall township called YES contractors. They were a pain schedule wise but all pool guys are. If you have a lot of grading to do find a local guy that can do it

    Doughboy top stabilizer rail replacement

    No worries and that was the language I was stating originally. I don't really expect them to cover the installation but I have gotten other companies to do things I would never have thought they would. Haha

    Doughboy top stabilizer rail replacement

    It is a lot of rust indeed. More than should be there just by using an SWG. That is why I am going to call the installer. If they get paid to fix it by doughboy they may "look past" the SWG. We do live near the beach as well but that should not make it rust that fast either

    Doughboy top stabilizer rail replacement

    Thanks Kim. I have used them and honestly was my last choice. I may call the installer Monday since it's only been less than 3 years. Have them look and see if they can get doughboy to warranty it some how. A guy can dream can't he? [emoji6]

    Doughboy top stabilizer rail replacement

    I just removed some end caps to get some pics to show you guys what I'm dealing with From what I have read I can remove up to 3 top rails at a time to replace the stabilziers. Now the issue is some of the mounting screws are so rusted I cannot get a grip with a socket. I cannot use vice grips...

    Doughboy top stabilizer rail replacement

    Doughboy will not cover anything that has a SWG hooked up to it. I already bought the rails Should I just remove the bond wire connections at the pool. The equipment will still be bonded

    Doughboy top stabilizer rail replacement

    Thanks again for responding. Unfortunately we just work too much and had to have a company put ours in. They were a group of guys from Jamaica but you could tell they we're old pros. They said they traveled to the states during the srping and summer for the last 10 to 15 years just installing...

    Doughboy top stabilizer rail replacement

    Sounds like we are going through the same process but our rails may be slightly different. I have 2 sizes. Thinner oned go on first and than thicker ones overlap those by about 6 inches which makes it harder to remove them. I am going to try to get out there again this weekend and try to...

    Doughboy top stabilizer rail replacement

    So this is the 3rd season and my tip rails are rusted to the point they are dropping good sized rust into the pool. I bought new rails and hit them with 2 coats or Rust-Oleum. Issue I have is that doughboys have large and small stabilizers that overlap and not just in between the posts. Has...

    Overlap liner installation general question

    I agree. We are very happy with this liner. I closed the pool yesterday and did notice a white spot near where the bottom of steps sit. I'm sure the pattern was just rubbed away so next year I may look for a mat for the ladder to sit on but also worried about algea growing under the mat. We...

    Aquador won't seal.

    I had no luck last year with my aquadoor. A couple of days after closing I realized there was water in my skimmer. Ended up just dropping the water level below this skimmer. I will try it again this year with some lube to see what happens
