Above Ground Swimming Pool Maintenance Tips

  • Use clear lacquer or clear nail polish to cover screw heads in your swimming pool.
  • Use clear lacquer or nail polish to cover any scratches on ledges or verticals of your swimming pool to prevent rust and corrosion.
  • Use wax to protect the pool wall and frame from the elements.
  • Never leave the swimming pool drained (without water). This can cause liner shrinkage and damage the pool wall and frame.
  • If you use the Thru The Wall fittings for your filter and decide to dismantle your pool or remove your liner, it is possible that you may not be able to realign these holes and a new liner may have to be purchased.
  • Check regularly for signs of wear or loose bolts that could make the swimming pool, the pool ladder, the pool deck, or any other related object unsafe.


Check all the metal on the swimming pool frame and pool wall for signs of corrosion or deterioration. Remove any corrosion and touch up with paint. Excessive deterioration can lead to failure of the pool structure, which might release large quantities of water that could cause bodily harm and property damage.

Make sure skimmer does not leak as this will corrode the pool wall and cause a split in the wall that is not covered under the pool warranty.


After the above ground swimming pool has been completely assembled and filled with water, do not attempt to make any structural changes or to disassemble the swimming pool. Disregard of the above warning can cause pool collapse, property damage and serious injury.
