    Re: bottom track spacing?

    Can you clarify what you mean on spacing? Are you asking about the size of the track itself or the channel gap or ? Each brand may be incrimentally different but I suspect structurally about the same to allow a steel or aluminum wall to fit and slide along it. Our track is about 1" wide and has about 1/4-3/8" channel for the wall to fit into.

    thanks for the quick reply. by "spacing" im referring to the gap (if any) in between each track/rail piece where they meet at each plate that hold the up-rites. i am thinking there has to be some gap i just don't know how much. oh, and while im thinking about it, should i use screws in the tabs to keep the track/rails in place? if so, should i put them in before or after the wall is in the track?

    Can you give us some pictures. Some have stops built into the plates to give you a gap. If it don't have holes for screws don't do it.

    What brand is the pool? Many of the manufacturers have online manuals
