|STEP 2: INSTALLING THE
MOUNTING BRACKETS ON YOUR RESIN CAP AND RESIN TOP RAIL POOL
H. Each bracket should have an angle of 60 degrees. The angle can be corrected, if needed, by inserting a rafter and bending the bracket up or down, as needed.
I. A sample of a 60 degree angle is below.
Cut out and tape to a piece of cardboard, then trim the cardboard to the
angle. You can then place the 60 degree angle next to each
bracket. See Figure 7.
|STEP 3: ASSEMBLE AND INSTALL
THE RAFTERS (ROUND POOLS)
A. On the ground next to the pool, assemble
all rafters. (Refer to the illustrated parts list for an an example
of your dome) Most assemblies will resemble the example shown in
Check the top of the spider for burrs or rough spots on the casting. If you find any, file or sand them smooth with a file or sandpaper. Rough spots or burrs can damage the vinyl cover.
B. Before installing any rafters, you must now refer back to the measurements that you took across the pool. Find your longest distance across the pool from vertical support to vertical support. This is where you will put up your first set of rafters.
C. Place two rafter assemblies opposite each other on the spider.
Helpful tip: Tape the first set of rafters on to the spider with silver duct tape to prevent them from turning or falling out while you are putting them up.
D. With one person holding each rafter end
and pushing towards the spider, carfully lift and walk the assembley over
the pool at the longest measurement. Place the rafters in the mounting
brackets. See Figure 9
