    New pool not completely level....

    I just had a new ABG pool installed, it is 18' x 54" (round) filled it as per the companies instructions to just below the skimmer opening. This morning when I was taking a look around the pool, I noticed it is not level. It seems to be off about an 1"

    So I called the pool company and they told me that I should not worry about it and ABG have a variance of 2" - and they also told me it is impossible to get the ground 100% level.

    Well despite what they say I am worried and concerned. Should I be? or is what they are telling me true?

    A one inch variance from the highest to the lowest spot is in the normal range and just fine.

    I can say that I just installed my first pool and it's **** hard to get within one inch. At least it was for me. I'm waiting for the liner to see just how close I rally am.
