My first setup was awful. It was 2 feet off level. I guess the excitement and kids being inpatient got the best of me. I just threw a liner protector and the pool without leveling. So after reading here for few days and seeing all the post related to pool leveling I decided to start from scratch. Hired a landscaper to get the new area leveled with sand and pavers for each post. They did an OK job so I had to clean up a little to get it to my standards. The weather here in Vegas was around 110-115 which didn't help at all and caused many delays plus drank 48 bottle of water bottles along with plenty of breaks. Once the area was ready to my surprise I found plenty of leaks and pin holes on the liner. I gave up after 4-6 patches and still kept finding leaks. I decided to call Intex and they sent me a replacement liner within a few days after I sent the cutouts. I was worried when the box arrived, it wasn't tape well and had a few rips. Had my niece help setup the new pool liner and added about 1/2" of water so that I can check each post to be leveled and to get rid of any wrinkles and called it a night. The following day I left work early exited to continue removing wrinkles and and start filling up the pool with water. To my surprise we got hit by strong winds. The pool liner along with the post got pushed 4-6 feet. The ladder saved the liner from being blown away since one of the legs got caught on the tarp. That's how strong the wind was picking up. No one was available to help me. I got underneath the liner and started to pull hard to get it align with each paver. I almost suffocated but I was able to manage to get everything back in place. The winds started to get stronger and I had to put a table inside to hold the liner down while I filled up the pool and got some weight. To cut the story short I was able to get about 2-3 inches of water and wasn't able to get all the wrinkles out. It has been a challenge but reading here and patience help me finish everything up including the PVC plumbing and Hayward skimmer. I do have a really minor leak but it seems to be around the seam of the liner. I'm going to try a do a dye test to see if I can locate it.
Here are a few pictures.
