You may measure your pool using the conventional method for recording your dimensions or for a more accurate method use the A-B My Pool application on your phone or tablet device. Both methods work and are described below. Advantages to using the A-B My Pool application are:
clearer capture of dimensions as handwritten numbers or information can be unclear.
the ability to see the finished drawing of your pool perimeter based on your measurements.
the ability to easily attach pictures to your measurements for a clearer representation of your pool to the product designer.
The A-B My Pool app may be downloaded by using the links in the left column.
Establishing an A-B point-
The A-B measurement format is simply two points on your pool deck or adjacent area with one point labeled A and the second labeled B. Some important considerations are:
Perimeter and Obstacle points-
Once you have established your A-B line the next step is clearly identifying the points around the perimeter of your pool and any obstacles that may need identification. To do this:
The Third Dimension for a vinyl liner measurment-
When measuring for an inground vinyl liner we must take into account the varying depths, slopes, and features inside the pool. To do this place points around the pool perimeter at each change in depth or the beginning and end of each slope, step or bench. Helpful hints for measuring these features may be found in the links in the left column of this page.
Anchor Measurements for a replacement safety cover-
If you are replacing your existing safety cover and wish the new cover straps to match your existing anchor locations, you will need to provide a second set of A-B measurements separate from your perimeter measurements. Do not mark cover anchors when marking perimeter points. They must be in a separate sequence from the perimeter measurement points.
Using the same method as for measuring the perimeter, mark each anchor point with a point number. If using A-B My Pool, begin the anchor numbering by skipping the next sequential point in your perimeter measure and beginning with the next point number. Measure from A to each anchor point and then from B to each anchor point.
