    Is my wall coming apart?? ** Pics added**

    Hi, I was just outside adding some chems and noticed directly under one of the upright caps on the inside of the pool under the liner is a lump about 1.5 inches wide that runs all the way down. When I press on it I can't tell what I'm feeling...screws or what but I have not seen this before and I think I would have noticed it. Help????

    This pool was installed about mid April.

    Is it where the wall connects?? It is perfectly flat under all the other uprights.

    I would get the people who installed it to come back and look at it. It sounds like a warranty issue to me ...

    So its not normal to be able to "feel and see" where the wall comes together?? Maybe I just haven't noticed but I really think I would have....

    Can you take a picture and post it for us too see. I think what your seeing and feeling is where they joined the pool wall together but I am not 100 % sure on that. A pictre would really help the experts determine what itis .

    Does it look like this?

    This is a pic of my pool bolts. I have it duct taped and wall padded.



    If so, it's just where the wall bolted together. It's normal. The reason why it's behind an upright is to hide the ugly bolts on the outside of the pool.

    I watched them install my pool and they used a thick strong metal strip with screws to attach the walls together where the circle met. I can feel mine, so I am thinking that is what you are seeing/feeling.

    If you really want to put your mind at ease you can remove the cap that is on your top rail and look down inside of that upright.
    I'm sure it's just the bolts for the wall. Mine is the same way.
