Well, we got Our pro-series, ultraframe ,Intex type pool up. Had to empty once after our leveling failure (skid steer = laser level twice. We were 3-5.5 inches off. So we emptied it, dug out the high poles allowing for different depths by using laser level again and noting with a marker height on each leg. I then handdug with a pick the leg holes to level legs (it was high on opposite sides, think a bowl effect.) We allowed space for legs to move out also. All seemed well. We got it with in the allowable 2". We did notice one pole bowing, so hubby jacked it up and straighten pole. We had used the 3 extra pins that came with it as , some of the holes were a bit tough to line up. Today I swam. nice. Then second swim (after 2" of rain added to pool,close to thinking of draining some off ). Noticed that one of the pins that was broken on one side, the flangeie thing. was now at an angle starting to move. Another pin is broken off and top on the ground on another pole.
So I can get more pins I believe by asking or there are some on Amazon, or can we rig a bolt and screw? Hubbys on phone, doesn't know yet. Not gonna be happy . Also the t has moved on the broken one about 1/2-1" so that can't be safe.
Suggestions or fixes for the broken pins? Perhaps me swimming made the pins give. Yes We also notice one or two ts tipping inward. The rest look flat,it is the ones we 'didn't dig in'. Almost like they settled.(we are talking Ga. hard clay rock here.).
I can now say that installing the other "normal" AG 24 pools was easier , even with the wind shipping the metal all over..
