    Settling on one leg-Ultra Frame

    Hello everyone...my name is Blaine and I am a newbie to Intex pools and this is my first post on this forum...just purchased a beauty 18X9X52 Rectangular Ultra Frame. I read tons of threads prior to setting up and thought I had everything in line...ground very level, etc. Now after the pool has filled, I noticed a leg sinking. I thought I had really hard compacted soil on the left side, but the end leg decided it wanted to go down more than others. I did not (shame on me) put wood or block under the leg. Is there anyway to lift that leg and put a block or something else under it without draining the pool? Jack it up, and then slide something under it? Besides this leg dropping about 2 inches, the pool looks wonderful, the pump is working terrific with no leaks.

    any help is very much appreciated!

    Not sure if it would work on your pool or not but it has been done. Obviously its at your own risk and no guarantee that it will work, but http://www.troublefreepool.com/succe...ol-t45938.html here it is anyways.

    Thanks so much Superman...this was the same sort of idea I had, just really worried about ripping the liner or bending the frame.

    I've seen some threads showing examples of T-legs being raised, but none so far with the dual-leg type on my pool. Anyone raised those types of legs with a full pool?
