Extra-Strength Vertical End Caps – “the Anchor” of any pool
Our vertical end caps are made from 18 gauge galvanized steel – 50% heavier than most brands. This provides added stability at the base and the top of pool. Exact, pre-punched holes assure structural integrity and allow for a more precise installation. Other brands use slotted holes which cost less to produce but weaken the stability of their pools. Test and compare us to other brands by vigorously shaking the top rail of a Doughboy pool. You can feel the stability!
