    Opinion needed. Just installed blocks for our new AGP

    Hello everyone!

    I have a question, I just got to the point of installing 15 patio blocks for the uprights on our new AGP. I leveled the originally with a board from the center to each block. Then when I was done I got out my laser level and measuring stick. My question is, how level is acceptable? I don't mind digging some up and resetting them..but if I'm ok...I will leave them. Here is what I got for each block.

    Comments? I know ideal would be all the same, but I'm working with hardpan..not so easy to work with.

    Thanks,

    Having the highest and lowest differ by an inch, after the pool is full, is completely acceptable. There will be some shifting when the water goes in, so it is best to be a bit better than that before filling.

    I'm now at less than 1/2 off from the highest to the lowest.
