I have an Intex 22 x 52" round pool. On Wednesday, my wife and I took out all the grass/sand/and strange things that were in the ground. Then we put a 2 x 4 board (11.7 inches long) and on one end put a leveler (24" long), put a rod into the ground and draw a circle were we wanted the pool. Then we took a tiller and broke up all the hard sand and stuff and carted that all off. In 118 degree weather (sunny) it was very hard work. The next day a friend came over (wife had to work), and put the rod into the ground and started to add sand, while move the 2 x4 around. By the time we were done in 118 degree weather (sunny) with this part we were both dead, but we got it to level out for us. There was one part that we had to add a lot of sand because of the slope in the yard. Then we put the pool up and found that Intex trap was a a little bit smaller, but we made due with another trap from lowes. So we had the ground all cover. Took out the equipment and started to put it together, level it all out and was shock that it was great! Today started to add the water. 11 hours into putting the in we noticed the following. Starting from top, we measured from the to the water line. 30, 28, 26, 28.
How can we correct this without letting the water out?
