    AG Install - Track problems

    We are installing a diamond star 18*33 pool. The track seems to be rising slightly in a couple of areas causing a small gap of <1/2"between the bottom of the wall and the track bottom. Our manufacturers instructions indicate that a 1/2" +/- in the concrete pavers is OK, but now we are wondering if that is true. It appears that in each area, the paver is just a fraction of an inch low. This is probably due to settling since we have a very heavy rain in the middle of our install. The alternative is that the tracks around the entire pool have worked themselves out every so slightly somewhere and that the pool track is a fraction larger than the wall. Without experience, we just can't tell which possibility might be true or if there is something else we might be missing. Suggestion on how to fix? It doesn't appear that we will be able to to put the top brackets on in those areas without the wall 100% seated. You should be able to see the difference between the photos.

    Problem was resolved by lifting the blocks at several point to bring the track up to the wall. In most cases, there were a couple in a row that were 1/8-1/4" lower than those around them. They were in areas where water runoff was an issue in the storm.
