    pool movement??

    Hi All,

    This will be my first pool opening,

    I notice the part of my pool has raised about an inch and a half, I think this is do to the ground freezing an now thawing, also when looking at 2 of the pool posts I can see that they are slight tillting inward, as if the pool was caving in on itself, but this again is only a little, to top of the post has moved inwards about an inch.

    I'm thinking as the groud thaws, it will go back to normal hopefully

    should I be worried, have any of you seen this before

    btw I live in montreal, canada

    Thanks

    Hi there!

    Is this a hard side AGP or a soft sided seasonal AGP?

    As you can see I have an Intex pool and I know how to adjust the pool to remain level. I will let the experts chime in about the hard sided AGP. Mayby one of these years I will have a hard sided AGP.

    Ok, so now that the ground has completetly thawed, my pool is back to being leveled, however I do still notice that 2 support post lean inward slightly, about one inch (at the top), should I be concerned at all?
