I am pretty sure I know the answer to this before I even post the question but I am pretty much hoping I can leave the pool up. This past weekend we picked up this pool at our local Sams Club. 300 bucks and we would be happily floating away in our backyard in this 100 degree Central Florida summer heat. Well after the fancy salt water system, salt, and engineering to make the salt water system fit the summer escapes pool we finally have our summer oasis.
I judged our back yard as being “level enough” as there is no noticeable slope and with the pool together I did notice one small low spot. I used some sand (Florida soil is sand) and leveled it out. I then added a couple pavers to the 2 legs in that slightly lower area and all looked pretty good. Well after adding water and after the pool has settled for a few days you can see the low and high spots have really started to show. Now there is only about 2 to 3 inches depth difference from the low to the high spot and all the legs seem straight. I just wish I had put pavers under each leg as I didn’t anticipate them sinking so much in this soft Florida sandy soil. Anyway, judging by the pictures do you guys think I will be okay leaving this up for the summer or do I need to drain it and start over?
Any help is a big thanks as I do not have any friends with any experience doing this.
The wife says she thinks it will be okay but I am not so sure.
