    Pool unlevel

    Ok I have 24' above ground pool. I drained my pool and put in a new liner. I'm guessing that all the water in my yard was to much. I have 4 sections of my pool that sunk it gradually goes down but it is 5" off. Looks bad. What can I do about this. I drained it and tried to lift the cram but it would not move. So I dug it a little deeper at that end and refilled and no ho water level at that end is way to high spilling over. Please help I do not have money to have someone come back and install it

    If it were my pool, I would disassemble it, prepare the site properly, and the rebuild the pool. We spent a great deal of time on the ground prep and it was definately worth the effort.

    5" out of level is excessive and there is a good chance that pool will come over.

    1" is considered the max. You need to start over.......sorry.

    Rebuilding a pool is horrible, but it's a lot easier than having to do it when everything's damaged!

    You'll feel a lot better using it now. Welcome to TFP!
