    Pool installation gone bad

    Can you please post a picture of your out of level pool installation that is still functional?
    I would like to see how bad you can go with the installation

    Any above ground pool more than 1" out of level is at risk of collapsing. The pool may well stand up for weeks when it is out of level, but then collapse later. Pool collapse can be quite dangerous, I wouldn't risk it.

    It's not that I want to do it that way. I'm just curious who did it and how does it handle it

    My pool is a round Pro Series metal frame 14'x 42". After getting the pool set up I found that one side is about 2 1/2" higher than the other. I under stand that this is probably the max of out of level I should be and probably should have emptied and re-leveled. I totally would have if this was a large pool and would have kids being crazy in it. It is just my and my gf using it to keep cool during the summer and will take it down in a couple months. So far the pool shows no bad signs and of course of it does I will empty it.
