I just finished filling a 16' UltraFrame, and 4 of the 16 legs are splaying so far out that they have left or are threating to leave the pad I put down for them. obviously I'm worried about the structural integrity of the pool if every 4th (literally) leg is not carrying it's share of the weight.
The rope is "optional" and my purpose in having it was to make sure I had things aligned (note red inkspot). I *did* have them aligned, since the red marks were made with the rope around the tee's, so the legs *were* perfectly vertical.
Several things come to mind:
- See if I can get a 50+ft cargo strap to actually put some tension on the lower end of the legs
- Very very carefully rig a car jack and a 2x4 with a notch to match the horizontal beams, raise and at least properly support
- Combine the above, as well as raising and "releasing" another set of legs to compensate
- Block them from moving further (already done on the 3 I can) and ignore
Any thoughts on the matter from people with similar pools and pads?
