Planning on purchasing Intex 14' x 48" Ultra Frame Swimming Pool. The only spot I can put it on my property has about about 1.7 / 12" pitch (or in other words 18-20" incline). Technically I can level it up with some backfill but it'll require a small retainer and go against the existing fence. I can also level it up by digging up the higher side but it'll prob require getting a small backhoe - a few stumps and plenty of roots under that area.
Would it be a good idea to build a leveling platform? Like a mini-deck? I can probably space stumps 3.5' apart throughout the area, 2x8 joists, regular 2x6 decking on top?
Anyone with similar setup?
P.S. Don't have a pool installed yet so pardon my lack of signature. I did read the rules though
