We just installed a new 24', 52", metal wall resin top AG at our new home. We moved a distance south, found we have clay here, not dirt like we're used to up north. Site wasn't even close to level, so got bobcat flattened from low point, built nice retaining wall a foot or so away from pool on the 3 high sides. Put in perforated drain tile just inside tie wall as precaution. Much labor, blood, sweat and tears, dodging rains storms working with goofy clay. Put in the patio blocks nice and flush and level, bottom wall track, all nice and level, all on virgin ground. Sand bottom/cove, walls up, looked good. Vac on liner through skimmer, nice liner fit, filled a foot, looked good. Filled about another foot and a half, now doesn't look level. Ugghhh.
Measured bottom of resin coping down to water level. Measurements at 6 0'clock and 12 0'clock are exactly 2" difference. Measured other way, 9 0'clock and @ 3 0'clock, 1-3/4" inch difference. I understand that 2" or less, end to end, are supposed to be OK. So that, we have covered. Here's the concern though, the 3 0'clock measurement is the most off, it's high. The "diagonal" difference, on 1/4 length of pool, 3 0'clock to 12 0'clock is 2-3/4" off. All other diagonal measurements, at quarters of the pool are one inch or less from each other. So definitely have a high spot at 3 0'clock.
Really, really hoping not to have to drain 3 hundred bucks worth of water, disassemble whole thing. Have really been through it with the rain and clay, and muddy dogs around the whole area, while working on pool project nights and week ends. Barely settled from move, just lost sibling suddenly. Emotionally/physically shot. But sure don't want anyone getting hurt. If you understand what I'm talking about with measurements and have experience, please advise. Thank you!
