We’ve had a number of questions regarding cross ties being missing from orders. This isn’t the case, and is done on purpose because the last cross tie interferes with the end cover, so we ship the orders “short” on cross ties to compensate for this. We are sorry for any confusion this has caused and are happy to help you with any other installation questions you may have.

We just want to make sure everyone is aware, if you don’t confirm any missing parts or issues with your order within 30 days, your order is considered complete and any items required will be an additional charge

Our Inflator Fans are 1/30th horsepower and move 110 CFM of air
The squirrel cage blower  maintains pressure, not adds to keep a consistent bubble of air between the double plastic.
There is a notch on the adapter that you hook, and you only have to turn it once for the flange to be inside and airtight.
