MEASURE LIKE THIS FIRST TO AVOID GAP IN POOL WALL!!

Postby lwquinn » Sun 03 Jun, 2007 12:43

We had the same problem. As it turns out our 24' round pool was actually 23' 8 1/2".

c=d*3.14 therefore....
c/3.14=d

unroll the sidewall of your pool and measure it first. Divide that amount by pi (or 3.14) to find the true diameter. Divide the diameter by 2 to get the radius.
Then set your pavers accordingly.
we foolishly believed that the radius of our 24 foot pool was 12 feet. We set the pavers and measured meticulously all the while laboring under the false assumption that the pool was in fact 24'.

All things being equal, whatever is left.....

surely enough we came up with a true diameter of 23' 8 1/2 inches and a radius of 11' 10 1/4". Now the pool is round. The edges closed perfectly and the liner went in uneventlfully.
I wish there was a way to have known this in the first place
