What do metal frames do for an above ground pool?

Above Ground Bottoms

Looking for some above ground pool advice? When you were little, you were probably told to follow directions on a regular basis—times haven't changed. Above ground pools are tricky and you have to pay attention to the instructions carefully. There are a lot of universal similarities with all of the models.

One feature you will find in all above ground swimming pools is the bottom rail (this is a metal frame that outlines the bottom of the pool). These metal frames also hold pool walls in place.

*Keep in mind, round pools can support themselves. However, oval pools will need additional outer support to prevent a cave in when the pool is full.
