So, I just got my Intex 26' x 52" Above Ground Pool assembled, filled and clear two days ago. Wouldn't you know it, somehow one of the legs is now bent in the middle. Did someone kick off it (or jump out of the pool over it)? Are more legs likely to bend as well due to my failure to put the legs on concrete pavers? The feet are digging into the ground and the pool liner pushing out in the middle of the legs. I'm thinking I have got to get the pavers installed, but how to do it without draining all or most of the 14,667 gals? I imagine I can brace the pool until the new leg gets here, but how do I raise the pool enough, or dig under enough to install the new leg?
I'm beginning to think that I might as well brace the bad leg, enjoy the pool for as long as it stands and when at last it fails or falls, then, drain it and fix the paver issue. But how will it fail? Will it destroy the liner? Will it damage more legs? Will it flood my backyard? Any thoughts?
Also, if I choose to drain now and fix and refill, is it likely that the city will give me another break on sewer fees for the refill?
