intex rectangle pool 12'x24'x52"

HI everyone, I'm putting the pool up for the first time and im noticing the long sides of the pool are bowwing in quite a bit. Is this normal? And will it straighten out on it's own. It 's almost 3/4 full but it doesn't seem to be moving at all. I can try to add pictures if needed.
thanks in adavance. Jason

Wow, that is not what I expected! But I don't have one, so can't tell you if that is normal or not. That fact that both sides are doing makes it possible this is what people are talking about. ... hope one of the members with this pool chimes in soon.

I had read enough posts about the sidewalls that the bowing didnt worry me, but the corners did.
I thought they were going to slide out of the top rail.
dont worry, the corners will adjust themselves as the pool gets full
At full capacity the corners will be able to slide back & forth a little as the side walls flex with the water movement
