    Help!! Sinking frame!!

    Hello all,

    Just a related problem!

    I just filled my pool on a sand base, and recessed 16" cement pavers under the legs of the ultraframe pool. Well, after about an hour when the pool is fully filled-two of the pavers broke in half.

    Now I have the same problem because the side of the pool is sagging on that side. Looks like I will have to jack up the pool to replace the cement pavers with wood. I figured the cement blocks would last longer and be stronger than the wood.

    So, perhaps everyone might consider using wood footings instead!

    Just a word of warning, I don't know if anyone has successfully jacked up a rectangular intex pool. The round ones are easy to jack. If you figure out how to do it, please post your method.

    Yes, I had noticed that no one had posted jacking up a rectangular pool. I will give it a try and post the method if successful. I'm guessing that the blocks I used were not that strong as compared to regular pavers. These blocks are used as "caps" on the top of block walls.
