    Re: Pool finally going up

    If it is level so far, it will probably stay that way. Don't forget to level all of your legs in and out and side to side. I want to say I could still slide mine around on my pavers until I had about 3 feet of water in it. Up until that point the water hadn't fully expanded the liner so it wasn't putting much pressure on the legs. The liner isn't perfectly up and down. It gets slightly wider toward the bottom of the pool. Once it gets so high, it starts pulling downward tightening against the frame and putting pressure on the legs.

    Re: Pool finally going up

    So the pool is full here it is getting closer I will post a full pool pic tomorrow., It is maybe a 1/2" off level. I did notice a couple of small wrinkles on the bottom which stinks but the legs all stayed on the pavers.
    Here It is almost full. You can see how close I am the water level made it almost perfect. I am very proud of this. I will be adding more pictures through out the week. I am going to be working on the deck build next.

    The wrinkles are a bit annoying, but on a positive note, dirt will gather against them and make it easier to vacuum.

    Re: Pool finally going up

    Yep. I know your pain. I think ours was 64 F when we were smoothing wrinkles. I wish we could have let it sun for a good part of the afternoon, but the wind was starting to pick up so we had to get some water in it so it wouldn't fly away.

    I think so too. If I ever have to drain for what ever reason, I'll work on them at that point. Until then, I will save myself time vacuuming.

    Re: Pool finally going up

    Yes I used shock on it yesterday. It seemed to be in line. I did have to add Algecide. We get the boatman and backswimmers. Hope that solves it.

    You need to read pool school and get rid of the algaecide and shock... Do you have a Taylor or TF100 test kit????
