Hello all new member here. Forgive me if this has been discussed as I did a search but it said "level" was to common so nothing came up. I just purchased a Intex Ultra-frame 18x52 and I am having a heck of a time getting it perfectly level and was looking for some advice or easy tricks. I know nothing is easy though...
Let me give some information on what I have done up to this point. I removed all the sod and using a 2x4 with a level on the end spun it around and until it was level. So I set the pool up and once it was filled it was higher one on side then the other by 2 1/2 blocks. So I have drained it and taken it down and have graded down the high side to where it was level with the side where it was lower. I got a line level but it doesn't seem to be very accurate. So basically it is level on a horizontal plane just not vertical. So I have a slight incline that is throwing this off. I have watched several videos on YouTube and done everything it shows, but it seems the videos make it look easier then it is.
One other question, once I do get it level and it is tampered down it will have some imperfections like so very small low spots. My question is once I bring in the sand for the bottom should I worry about those small low spots here and there just as long as the ground overall is level? In theory I was thinking if I have it spread evenly at 1'-2" thick and level those won't matter much right? Last thing, how far off level can it be and still be ok? I am a perfectionist so I would like to get it perfect if I can. But It is also getting hot now and my impatiences of wanting to enjoy it is starting to take over.
