    Frame Supports Sinking

    Help!

    I have a 15x30 above ground pool that I built last week. Since filling the pool the diagonal frame supports in the mid section have sunk about 1” on both sides of the pool. Due to the sinking of the diagonal supports sinking the vertical supports in the mid sections have raised above the pavers about ½”. The walls with the radius are still level and plumb. The ground was level during construction and I did put 12x12 concrete pavers under all of the supports on the pool.

    I am currently building a deck around part of the pool and am hoping that there is a fix without staring over.

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    Welcome to TFP.

    Maybe some of the construction experts will see this and respond but it would help if you could post some pictures of the problem.

    You can stop SLAMing your pool when you pass the OCLT (You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & You have .5ppm CC's or less) & your water is clear.

    The only good news is if it is sinking evenly. Here's wishing you luck!

    Checking on the pool this morning, I found one of the pavers supporting the diagonals has snapped in two from the weight. The now broken paver is still below the support.
