we we have a 12'x24'x52" Intex pool that we just took down. Time to do it right, lol. I found a nifty tool mentioned in a past TFP post about using a water level. I've got an idea of how to apply this tool. Would appreciate your feedback as to the soundness of this idea...
1. Stake off the perimeter of the general area using at least 15" stakes (I'm thinking three stales on each side). Make sure to allow for the space needed but the legs & support stones!
2. Fill a milk jug with water & add red dye, insert a 30' tube of 1/2" or 3/4" clear tubing about 1" broom the bottom, making sure to seal the insertion point into the jug.
3. Select a stake, stretch the tubing to it. Make a mark on the stake AND on the jug. (From that point, it's just a matter of moving the tube to the remaining stakes & marking them where they are level with the mark on the jug. Is this the right way?)
4. Measure the distance on each stake from the mark to the ground. The difference would be the amount of earth I have to remove from the hig end at the point it enters the ground. (Does this sound logical?)
I'm sure there are more steps to follow and some things (or a lot, lol) that I've missed in the above process. Would greatly appreciate your constructive feedback
