    Help Please

    I have 3 issues. I have a leak I cant stop. I put a patch on it and it still wont stop.
    Also, I am off by 3 inches and the left side of the pool seem to be leaning in. What do I do. The Hayward pump has a small leak coming out of the motor area

    Here are some pictures.

    Drain, level, repair leaks, reinstall, fill. That's about all there is to do. 3" is too much out of level to let it go.

    Look at it like this. At least you know exactly what needs to be re-leveled where. And wouldn't you rather hear it from friends? Hang tough!

    I am in NJ, where the temp go down really low. Not sure if that would work here. Your thoughts?
