    Not Quite Level :)

    I have recently set up a 15 foot intex pool. After some heavy rain, about four vertical support poles have sunk in about 2 inches. And the pool is leaning slightly. the water level is about two inches higher on the pump side of the pool. DO I need to take it down and put some wider supports under the legs to prevent sinking, or will it be ok? Thanks!

    got any pictures for reference? You may be able to do a quick fix depending on where it is leaning, now much, etc. On the other hand, you may not.....Pictures help a lot

    Welcome to TFP!

    2" is a bit much, but if things stabilize at this point you can probably get away with it. The largest danger is if things continue to move and it gets even more off balance. If you think it might settle even further, then you definitely need to take it down a re-level things carefully and provide more solid supports for the legs.
