I am new here and my husband and i are new to above ground pools. We got the 12x24 itex pool and so far this pool has caused us nothing but pure torture. I knew the ground needed to be level but i dont think i realized just how unlevel our yard was! We worked for a month trying to level our yard ourselves with shovels. Anyway fast forward to 2 days ago. We thought we were level, and we may still be leve,l the problem is one side of our supports sunk bad and its only on one side in the very corner. I dont know how that happened because we used treated wood and our ground was so friggin hard everywhere (except there obviously) Anyway the water went to that side and at first it was off by about 3 inches, by the next morning it was off by 4. So we drained the pool and now its just sitting in the heat outside. We are getting some dirt from a friend and going to try to build up that corner where the support sunk. Will that work? What would you do? Also is it okay to have the pool sit out in the sun with no water for hours? I acn not tell you how many tears have been spilt over this project. I can not have it sink in that spot again! How do we stop it from sinking in there?
