    Uprights rising! HELP!!!

    I know someone else talked about this also but
    I still a little worried. We already filled up our pool when we notice the some
    Of the uprights around the deck have lifted up causing a small gap between the top rail and pool wall. They also seem a little loose. Everything with the wall looks fine but I'm concerned. I don't want to drain the pool since we just filled it up. Is the pool ok to use for this summer! What can I do now? Help!

    Short answer... NO

    It would assume you do not have a packed base for your pool to sit on?

    Photos would help immensely to fully understand. Photos of the gaps and of the base of the walls.

    What did you do to prepare the base? (the area directly under the pool and the walls.
    Did you dig dig from the high side and fill in on the low side?
    Did you use a tractor? rototiller? or shovels?

    I can post pictures tomorrow it is storming pretty bad right now! I am not sure about the base we just bought the house last year and the pool was already installed!
