    Unlevel pool

    My first year with an aboveground pool and I installed it myself. I did everything I could to make everything as level as possible but I have one quarter that is dipping.

    My question is: do I have to drain the pool partially or completely to adjust the pads that the legs are sitting on. I have hydraulic jacks that I can take the weight off of long enough to raise the pads.

    Search here for Intex not level. There are some here that have managed to do it. I'd do at least a partial drain unless you're in a drought area. How far out of level is it? I've seen pics of pretty bad ones that've been up for years. 1" is the recommended Max.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Is this an Intex style pool as msgtdan is guessing, or is it a hard walled AGP? Your signature is not specific, and you don't mention it in your post.

    If it's only an inch or two off, I'd personally leave it. The first year I put my Intex up it was two inches off on one corner. It was just fine. I'd just make a point to notice where's it's off so the next season you can fix it.
