    How unlevel am I allowed to be?

    Now that my pool is beautiful and I can turn filter off I have noticed a problem. My pool is not level. About an inch and a half at its worst spot maybe little more. Pool is around 7 years old new liner last year. I am just now noticing it. Is it dangerous??

    We recommend no more than an inch out of level..........but you're probably okay with that sized pool. Just keep an eye on it for more settling.

    Wow. I hope it doesn't get worse that would be a nightmare. Would it be the liner installers fault?

    The pool frame is what is out of level--and therefore the liner along with it.

    Oh. I thought it was because the the sand underneath. So the pool was probably level when originally put up but over time just settled?

    Be a good guess.........if the base was level to begin with.

    Could it be the guys that put in my new liner didnt level the sand properly when they were raking it? Thank you! I'm clueless!

    No. The frame should have been set on solid level ground and possibly pavers. If it was originally just set on sand, then that can wash out or allow the legs to settle.

    All that is independant of installing the liner.
