    Out of level and wonder how to move forward...

    Soooo... I just purchased my first pool. When we selected its location, I appeared mostly level. When we measured, it was about 2 inches out of level, so a half-hearted attempt to dig and level was made. However, when the pool was setup and filled, it's 5-6" out of level... I know I need to drain it and relevel, but:

    1. I need a recommendation on finding a professional to do the ground work,


    2. I'd like to save the water.... Is there any way to do this?

    A landscaper could level the ground for you, or most any builder type. You can use the water to irrigate your yard by sinking a hose in the water, stick your thumb over the end, then drag that end out, hold it down to the ground, and let go (like a siphon). Can't think of any way to save it. Glad you're levelling the pool and welcome to TFP

    Welcome to TFP

    1. almost anyone that does yard work or landscape company, you can also rent a lawn sod cutting machine to dig down

    2. The only way I know how to save the water is to transfer it to another pool

    I hope this helps
