Thank you M and Teal, I will swap the valves I have.

After finally getting home from a 36 hr shift. I looked to see if my pool was still standing and luckily it is. I guess with the wind and wall moment; Everything is just worst regarding being out of track. I think to future proof myself; my best course of action is
1. Take out the pool coves and wall(suck up the pool coves as a lost),
2. take out the foam boards temporarily,
3. pull the sand to the middle.
4. Ensure ground is leveled again, especially with all the track movement.
5. Reinstall the pool wall with no sand NEAR IT.
6. Finish installing the wall with beaded receiver and top rails.
7. Instead of sand, use compact soiled around the inside wall of the pool under the pool cove and board(1ft perimeter of the pool and the remaining sand after it)
8. Install insulation board and use a new set of pool coves
9. Outside perimeter of the pool. Throw lots of rocks around.

Update:

I finally took down the wall 2 days ago. It was depressing to go backwards but I think it was the best route to make sure everything goes right.

Obvious something bad has to happen lol...well ....As I was folding the the liner...I heard a snap. I unfolded my liner and it was my top track. Broken in half. :cry: .

Track.jpg

I have done house remodels of all kinds (roofing, tiles, electrical, plumbing, walls, fencing) but this pool has kicked my behind lol. After freaking out for a bit; I was able to reach the pool factory and they are sending me a new piece. Thanks God. This Saturday I will go for round number 3 on liner/track/everything install. Hopefully the beaded receiver will make everything easier.

My setup will be somewhat like this for the base.NEW BASE.jpg

Wishing you great luck, warm weather, & no wind for your final install! Remember, many hands make light work. The leveling is the hardest part & u have that licked.
So glad the pool factory took care of you - i have heard great things about their customer service. I will be looking forward to more pics 😊

Thank you! I prepped the ground, and washed every single bottom/top track.
Today I went for round number 3. I was able to get the wall up, install the bottom/top tacks with the beaded receivers and finally able to install all the up-right posts with the top rail!

Tomorrow I will finish the decor/caps, and prep the inside of the pool one more time before I install the liner.

My only concerns is....

1. Temperature will be in the low 70ish, will that be ok for the liner to get some sun exposure so I can install it around the pool?

2. Beaded Receiver - The receiver does not clip onto the metal strip of the pool due to the thickness of the bars and bolts. Can I safely skip 2 inches of the receiver at that part or what should I do?

If it’s sunny, then you should be fine... just allow the liner to lie in the sun for a bit.

Can the bolts be loosened at the top just enough to slide receiver on, then tightened back up?

Calling @Casey for her thoughts.

I'm unclear if you can safely skip that part because I could never get the beaded track onto my pool so I scrapped it.

Pictures please. If it is a new pool you shouldn’t have issues installing or have “ extra” parts.

My question was if I put the beaded receiver over the metal bar. For my pool its plated both sides and double the width. I was in hold of a pool installer and he told me just to muscle it in..so I did. Lol.

Update: I finally installed the liner! Now for some water, plumbing and electrical! Lol.

My next set of concerns...
Anyone recommends a good youtube video on treating the water once I Start filling it? Currently I know nothing about pool chemistry, I haven't even opened the tf100 kit.

When am I suppose to dump the pounds of salt into the water?

To prevent any future collapse and such...the goal is to build some sort of deck around the pool to close the 20inch gap from the deck to the pool.
Something like this...20201226_155524.jpg

I don't know the best way to start? Should I do river rocks then fill with soil? I read about using "Surry". Ultimately I need to fill the void with something on the left and around the pool. Any advice would greatly be appreciated.


I will update with pictures tomorrow when I start filling.

Forgot to add a sketch of my real yard.
It's 4 ft on the left and 2 ft of soil or whatever needed on the right

Update: I finally added some water. I noticed the bottom of the liner seam wasn't hitting the foam cove which was kinda freaking me out. So I used duck tape to pull the liner toward the cove. I was able to pull a bit but still kinda concerned. As of now it's roughly 6-8 inches of water with bottom seam maybe 4 inches away from the wall and hitting the floor instead of the cove.

I was surprised I was able to duck tape the liner while submerged in water. With the sun in the 80s tomorrow, I will pull a bit more just to be on the safe. Using this method to remove any wrinkles works awesome btw!

I’m surprised that stuck! Be careful not to leave it on too long, you might end up with residue sticking to your liner.

Yea, I was definitely worried that it will leave the glue residue. After work today; I'm going to continue to work with the liner as the sun bakes it. Hopefully, everything turns out ok and I can continue filling as I do some plumbing. Hopefully by this Sunday; I will have everything fully done with no mishaps.

Hey all.
I just finished the plumbing today! After a rough week of free standing fill water. I will update pictures later today. I just did my first water test and had a couple of questions before I ruin the next step lol.
My results is as follow-
Cl - 0
Br - 0
PH- 7.8
TA- 130
Cya- 0 (assuming)

Based on my understanding and using poolMath, I need to add 7.3 Oz of M.Acid to help TA (will lower ph a bit) and add 1q 2 cups of clorox (7.5% unscented) and 234 Oz of liquid Stabilizer for CYA

Can I do this 1 after the other? I'm still working on the electrical, so my swg is not running, it should be Hopefully tomorrow or within 3 days if weather permits

Add enough chlorine to get to 3ppm. Hold off on the stabilizer until you get your pump running. For now wait on adjusting pH until the pump is running.
Ignore TA for now!
Br is Bromine on the comparator, you can ignore this, since you don’t have bromine in the water.

I do have power in my pump, just not in my swg. With that said, what would you recommend on your approach?
