    Need help, pool in sinking a little..

    I bought my above ground pool last July so this is the first winter I go though

    I just did i little walkaroung of the pool yesterday and notice that a portion on the pool had sunk abit (maybe 2 posts) sunk between 1 and 2 inches

    should I be concerned? is this due the the freezing of the ground? is it posible that it will go back to normal in the spring when the ground thaws


    thanks for your help

    Is this pool dug down perhaps like mine is (2 feet), or is totally above ground? Was dirt "built up" under the area where the posts have sunk during the leveling or erection process? Sometimes dirt is moved from a high ground spot to a lower one.

    no, its completelty above ground, I didnt do the installation, however from what I could see when the installers where doind the job, I dont think the dirt was built up, they had dug down to make it level.

    can this be left as it is or can it be fixed?
