    Raising Intex Prism frame supports (metal Fame rectangular pool)

    Hi,

    I have a question regarding my new Prism frame retangular pool 5 x 3 Meters. I am planning to set it up on my terras/driveway but it is not fully level.

    Maximum of 7 cm off (2,5 inch) over 5,5 meters

    Now i was thinking about raising the supports a bit So leveling the frame, but i am afraid that the frame will cave in as seen on a youtube movie of a metal frame pool, which had all support beams 3 inches to high (the guy forgot to burrie these level with the floor) But i dont know if this also happens when raising the supports to fully level but not the floor.

    Leveling is not an real option, because its my behind driveway (paved) and i need to remove the pool in a few months due to the winter.

    Maybe other level options such as thick shingles?

    1. The area where the pool is to be set up must be absolutely flat and level. Do not set up the pool on a
    slope or inclined surface.

    You really want this pool to be on a level surface. If this is the only place you can put it, you can try to box it in with a frame and add limestone/sand to build it up.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    yes, that was my idea now, indeed make a wooden sturdy frame on the floor and put in grit to level, and add intex foam tyles on top
