Hello Everyone. First post - two issues/ questions
We recently installed a 12x18 AGP (oval). Has the buttress support system, so there is a metal brace in the center of the side walls on both sides under the upright support to hold the weight. This brace creates almost a slight inward curve on both sides in the center (normal I believe).
Question 1 - I noticed a slight lean (outward) on both sides of the pool on the long side, on one side of the metal support. If I take my level, it appears to be 3/4 of an inch on one side of the metal brace (only one panel) and the other side of pool same issue but less of a lean (about 1/4 inch). Remaining panels appear to be pretty straight. Any level issues less than 1/4 inch. Is this a problem? My concern is if my pool collapses, my neighbors would be flooded cause I'm up on a pretty steep hill.
Question 2 - I noticed inside the pool, where the wall meets the ground all around, the liner is pretty smooth and nice and rounded on the edge floor. Except in one spot, about 5 feet long, it seems like there is something under the liner (maybe sand), however it almost creates a "step" on the bottom. About 2-3 inches up and 2-3 inches out? Making a 90 degree lip almost on the bottom. I'm worried this could rip the liner. Is this a major problem?
Thanks for the help!
