Are there any disadvantages to getting an oval pool as opposed to round pools - Round pools versus oval pools?

Oval pools I've seen require bracing around the permieter. Round pools do not (its physics). Oval pools also now have bracing options which run under the floor of the pool instead of around the outside. It is worth noting that round pools have a structural design advantage over oval pools and require no additional mechanical bracing, a round pool must be built to a higher specification to ensure it receives the full advantage of its design. If you are building the kit yourself you may like the building process of the oval pool more forgiving.

Can you convert an above ground 24' round pool into an oval above ground pool?

Answer is noYou can remove a round one and install an oval after, of course, you make necessary adjustments to the ground--making the ground level in an oval instead of a circle. The only things you might be able to re-use from the round pool are the pump/filter, ladder, skimmer and return fittings, and your cleaning equipment. Round pools are built quite differently and are not meant to turned into ovals. Theyndon't have the supports required, whether that be braces or straps. So, basically the answer is 'no'.
