Hi everyone, username says it all.
I have one spot in my yard where I could put my pool due to septic field and slopage of the land. I tilled it to where I thought I was good and level. Then I brought in 2 tons of fill dirt, raked it to be free of rocks and leveled it. I then brought in two tons of sand and put it down. The slope is such that it sloped to the front and to the right. Thought I had it good and level and did but as the pool filled, the deepest part of the dirt and sand must have compacted more than the upper side.
As we began filling the pool I used 2x6 wooden blocks to keep the legs on the lower side from sinking in and as she stands now the FRAME is great. Nothing leaning, everything appears to be straight up. If you just looked at the frame, all would look good. My issue is that the low side has about 3-4" more water in it than the upper side. I pulled on and shook the frame and nothing's moving, it doesn't appear to want to shift downhill so the pool looks stable and appears to not want to collapse.
I didn't sleep a wink last night almost having panic attacks thinking that it might collapse and that I might wake up to 4" of water in the house!
Is this going to cause me a problem? I have a play set that I can move against the lower side of the frame to prevent total and utter collapse (my biggest fear) and sure the frame up.
If I drain it, I'm cutting it into pieces and throwing it away, so that is not an option. I plan to keep its water level just above the skimmer (skimmer is on the lower side) to keep water weight to a minimum. I've also warned the kids NOT to be doing the boogie board tidal waves.
