Oh, I am so sad.
We put up our pool last week (Intex metal frame, 24' round.) Before we bought it, we had a pool installer level the ground with a bobcat.
It was wonderful! We had a good week... and then, today, a huge rainstorm.
The pool legs on one side (which are on bricks, as I read to do) have sunk down into the wet soil and now the pool is about 3" out of level on that side. I didn't realize this had happened until the kids got in and splashed, and TONS of water came out that side.
The wall is bulging on that side and it looks pretty ominous.
I have spent the last four hours digging a 2' by 20' ditch away from the pool, and bailing water out of the pit that water created. (Not an easy feat for a little gal like me.) The water issue is solved, for now. But the legs are still quite far into the ground - like 2".
Hot, dry weather is predicted so hopefully I can somehow pry them out once it's dry. I have about $1800 into this project (including $450 just for water delivery) so I'm hoping and praying that we can solve this without harming the pool.
I can't decide if I should scream or bawl my eyes out.
