Thread: Ultra Frame Leg Footings/Pads....

    Ultra Frame Leg Footings/Pads....

    How important is it to have the pads under the legs of the ultra frame pool "flush" with the ground? Directions were kind of hard to interpret at that point and we put them on the ground without flushing them with the ground....pool is full and it seems level and fine...but....again how important is this? BTW I am in the process of draining it right now to fix, but if its ok, I'll leave it.

    Thanks...

    If they are not too thick (~<1 inch), I think is has worked fine for people on here. Just be sure there is not an edge that can touch and work the liner.

    Well, since you are full it must be working. Only issue I can think of is excessive tension on the sidewall potion of the liner and if the corners of the blocks are able to rub/damage the liner.
