We have a 24' above ground pool for about 2 years now. Just getting around to designing deck for it and had a question. Is the top rail of the pool able to support weight of a person? Or should I cantilever the deck six inches over so it's even with the inside of the top rail?
I've also seen pics of decks where the deck is even or under the top rail - that is why I was wondering what if someone sat on the rail - would it cause the pool to buckle?
