    Filling up.. 2 legs not on pavers.

    Hi. Filling up my intex 14x42 right now and I noticed 2 of the legs are not on the pavers anymore. (they were dug level with the ground). We have some pretty hard base anyway, was just trying to go the extra step. I have the pavers to far out from the pool, was scared for the to rub against the edge. Anything to worry about ?

    If the pool isn't too full, I think I would try to move them. You may have a solid base, but those two legs are going to have more ground pressure on them then the other 12 legs that are still on the pavers.

    Yup, its one of those things where all the legs need to be on the pavers.... Because they will eventually sink further into the ground than the pavers and make your pool unlevel.... Its best to get it right the first time....

    Too full now to move. the ones that aren't on are currently the high side by about 1/2 inch so if it does sink on the side it would be better. I'll watch for now.

    It will probably be OK just keep your eye on it. There is a thread on here somewhere detailing how to jack up a post to let the pressure off so you can repair the paver.

    I think I might do that. Nervous that the legs are right at the edge where the pavers are which is loose dirt since it was dug. Really want to get the legs under.

    Rain forecast for tomorrow. We shall see how it holds up. Right now I'm still off almost an inch.
