  1. We just purchased a new steel walled sharkline Summerfield above ground pool and had it installed. My son was the first one in and he is only 9 and i noticed the pool creaking in spots where the braces are. Installer said that’s normal in a new pool and will stop. I don’t see anyone else having this problem. Thoughts? Is this true or should I be worried?

We contacted our Wilbar representative. Below was the response.

We are going to need more information.  Of course, our first suggestion would be to ensure all the bolts on the buttress assembly are tight as well as the top rails and caps.  If they are jumping in the pool and causing the wall to move excessively while playing it could be the sound of a top cap moving and rubbing against the upright and/or top rail, they will need to isolate where the sound is coming from.

It does seem like the top cap rubbing the top rail. But it happens without much motion in pool. I attached a video link to show. Is there away to fix it?

I've sent your video over to Wilbar to see if their tech support has additional advice. I should have an answer soon.

Hello! We have a Sharkline, new install this season, and a similar issue. What was the resolution to this concern?
