    Is this an Intex style pool? How much water is in it now, and how much higher is the support rail?

    Two years ago the liner shifted when we started filling our Intex. One leg was leaning badly, so we looped a tow strap around the tee and used an engine hoist to lift the post so we could reposition it.

    Maybe if you could lift this post you could insert a paver underneath it to make things level.

    That post definitely needs a paver or 2 under it. I'd say drain some water, pull the liner back and remove the cove and slide a couple pieces of wood in to hold the load (pool wall) and lift it enough so you can slide the pavers in under the post. These pools are heavy though. You will need some strong men to do this.

    I wonder if you could use a jack and a length of 2x4 or landscaping timber to lift it. You'd have to make a decent base to keep the jack from getting buried.
