    Equipment pad NOT level...will it be a problem?

    Hello everyone,

    My PB installed all the pool equipment, Pool is about 4 years old now. I just noticed that the equipment pad is not level. I think is must have settled over time. The PB put 3/4 stone under the pad. It's to the point where the heater and DE filter are about a good 1/2 off level if not more.

    Do you know if this would cause problems? I am thinking about disconnecting everything, then re-leveling the pad...I'm worried the pipes may not fit exactly if I do that though.

    Should I leave the pad uneven?

    Not an issue. Happens plenty of times that pads sink and aren't level any more.

    A word of caution: When working with gas and electrical you might want to consider a licensed contractor. Consider the value of your life and others around you.
