    Crooked liner or am I losing my mind?

    Well I need a hand on why my Intex 15x48. Ground was leveled and tamped,perfect. Put up pool,checked,perfect. Filled and kept leveling legs,perfect. Now it's 80% full and liner is off by 1-1/2 squares on one half of the pool? Ran a line level side to side and around,perfectly level. Put level on the water,perfectly level? Pool level, liner not,or am I seeing things? Put up a hard sided pool years ago and that was perfect. Wanted to try the Intex for a few years to see how much my kids use it before investing in a hard side profeshonally installed pool ($$$). What am I missing.

    My guess is the pattern isn't even after it was all seamed together in the factory. I know ours was off. It was a summer escapes pro series pool and it had a waterline pattern and it was even off. Drove me nuts but like you I knew the pool was level so there wasn't anything I could do about the asthetics of it.

    I know how you feel though because you work so very hard to get the ground perfect and level and then all that work seems futile once it's filled and the pattern is off.

    It only took 3 days to level a spot that looked level. It's been 85-90 degrees to boot while doing it also. Any pointers on landscape around it I'm thinking rubber mulch and 4x4's.

    Lmao I'm upside-down haha
    Rubber mulch is good or even tumbled stone/rock. I'm going to use the pathway maker mold and make a walk way around mine and probably mulch around that. Eventually I'll plant ornamental grasses and small low growing plants around as well.

    It's the same with my Intex pool. The pool is level, the water is level, but the little blue exposed squares above the water line, aren't level. It's the way the pool is seamed.
