    New Pool install - Floor Liner issue

    Hi guys

    I am a first time Above ground pool owner and have a question. The pool has been in with water for about a month now and I noticed after the water settled that I can feel the four braces from the bottom of the pool. The installer installed the pool on top of sand and if i dive down with goggles I can see and feel the sand over the braces but there are now 4 humps in the bottom. Is that normal for an above ground pool. I attached a picture and highlighted in red the area of where the bottom is humped now.

    I have a Distinction LX 15x30

    It is not unusual for the weight of the water to compact the sand so that anything under the liner is either visible or felt with the feet.

    It would also help if we could see your pool and any issues that are visually notable.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    I don't have a underwater camera but I will see if I can take a picture of it from the top. Not sure how good it will look but I will try.
