    Has anyone cut the pool legs instead of leveling the ground?

    I have a concrete slab ~3" difference in slope. Last year I used some pavers to make up the slack. I have those rotating pipe cutters and was thinking about if it's possible to cut the legs and spray some paint the rod ends for corrosion. Would the pool sides bulge too much on the shallow side? Just a thought, not too serious.

    Not gonna work, the water is still sitting on an unlevel surface and the water is where all the weight is, the reason we level is to create a a level surface for the water and to distribute enourmous weight evenly.
    Cutting the legs does nothing to distribute the water evenly.

    I believe some people have laid down aggregate on cement and then leveled and compacted the aggregate and then put an Intex on that, assuming your talking about an Intex pool.
    You can probably find some threads on that.
