A lot of FB pools come from the factory with the flex schedule 40 pre-installed. The specs on the pool installation from the manufacturers call out "schedule 40", which the flex is, just not the rigid most are used to seeing in pool builds. The flex seems to be a popular option with FB pool installs vs rigid and while I know there are a lot who are against it, I've also seen a lot of information from respected people in the industry (even on this site) who think this is fine. I don't mean to get into a debate about the merits of flex vs. rigid, but in this build, seems a good choice.Are they planning to do the plumbing with flex pipe instead of rigid? I see a roll of the wrong type material against the fence.
I believe they put that brace on there to make sure the sides don’t lean inwards as the are backfilling the pool. I had the opposite problem, the pool didn’t have proper backfill as the water was added and the walls started pressing outward. The brace fell in the pool and one wall started to bow outwards. PB drained one foot of water and then added backfill and that corrected the problem thank goodness. They are taking $100 off my bill for the extra water. They backfilled more today and want me to add water until there is 2 ft in the shallow end. They also had a guy buffing the top edge of the fiberglass today and fixing any imperfections. I haven’t gotten home to see it yet.why would they brace the insides? I would think that would only need bracing if the bottom wasn't on flat hard ground.
If you have to measure the water lHere was the last picture before the bulging problem. Just as we were starting to fill. They had lots of backfill on the front and back, but not on the sides. Now that I have filled the pool up most of the way today, I want to measure the water level from top at each corner.

Looking good! If you have to measure to determine if it's level, it's got to be really close! I think when they set mine they said it was withing 1/4". I'm sure yours will be great too.Here was the last picture before the bulging problem. Just as we were starting to fill. They had lots of backfill on the front and back, but not on the sides.
