Hi! New here!
So husband and I jumped in and put up a 16x48 ultra frame intex pool. We read so many reviews that we were certain that there was a 50/50 chance that we would get a ripped liner or holes, a broken pump, something. We took our chances and got the pool up and running this weekend. pump works fine (we added a saltwater pump) and no holes, broken seams, etc.
Well, we were so worried about all those other things we neglected the severity of an off level pool. It even says in the dang instructions that when you start adding water, check for levelness before you proceed. It only looked an inch off or two so we proceeded. We were so worried about holes that it didn't seem a big concern.
so, jump ahead to now, we have looked, measured, researched and we seem to be off about 2 inches. I went around with a tape measure to each of the poles and two poles on one end are 40 and two poles on the other end are 42 with all the poles in between being about 41 and 41 1/2. ugh.
we have decided to drain and get the leveling right. A few questions.......
1. how long will it take to drain? we plan on running a garden hose out to the street.
2. we plan on trying to leave the t joints in and only removing the "legs" and trying to move the liner that way if it isn't too heavy and we can do it without damaging/dragging the liner.
3. Anyone do anything similar and have any advice? WE want to be back up and running as soon as possible. With a level pool!!!
