I haven't slept much this week, partly due to initial excitement about getting a pool, now it's due to worry. We just purchased an AG salt water pool kit and was told by the company that this is a do-it-yourself project. We are no dummies and have taken on permitted (and passed) building projects such as house additions so we thought, how hard could erecting an AG pool be? Much harder than we imagined!!!!
We levelled and then levelled again to be sure but it wasn't until we snapped the liner on when we realized something was not quite right. The liner was overly tight and the metal wall (one continuous piece) was popping out of the bottom track. When we put the top plates on, some fit and some didn't. This is not a manufacturer defect, this is directly caused by the install. We have had a lot of rain and the area around the pool has collected a lot of water causing the oval end to sink enough that the wall has popped out. We have raised the concrete blocks on that side as best we could to ensure the wall stay in the track, but it is 1/2" higher than the sides.
Sorry for the long post!!! Do we continue and fill with water (approx 15,000 gallons) or should we take it all down and re-do?
