    Ground condition for leveling prior to install question.

    I have a new AG 12x24 Intex ultra frame i am trying to get up ASAP. i started last Friday hoping to get the ground leveled and maybe the pool constructed prior to the rain came in. well that did not work. I had the base scratched of sod and was ready for leveling when i ran out of light and into rain. well now that we have had well over 5+ inches of rain. my yard is a little soaked. my question is as follows:

    Is it ok to fill a pool when the ground is as wet as it is? Typically I have a rather hard soil when dry. But it has a lot of clay in it that is a little mushy when wet. Any advice is appreciated.

    I don't know if you've already decided, but I'd probably wait for it to dry and recheck the leveling.
