    Need help putting 16' Intex pool on stamped concrete patio

    Our patio comes out from the house narrows a little and opens up to a circular shape. It's just barely big enough for our pool. Last year 2 of the legs were close to slipping off the patio. I think if we would have leveled the pool it might have fit perfectly. My question is how do I compensate for the fact that the patio slopes away from the house and what can I use as leveling material that won't destroy my patio?
    Here is a link to my patio, I couldn't figure out how to post a picture here.

    What is the slope (in inches) over the distance the pool will cover?

    Rip several 2x4's from 3.5" tall at one end to 0" tall at the other. Then, place a 3/4" plywood platform on the 2x4's to support the pool.
