    Exclamation move the bottom of the liner

    So I put about an inch of water in the pool to work out the wrinkles, and I noticed that even though the legs were straight, the bottom of the pool was not centered. If I continue filling, it will drag the frame to where center is - which will end moving the legs off my piers. It's too heavy to grab the bottom and move it now that it has an inch of water.
    Help!!

    I tried siphoning, but the water level is so low, it won't siphon out.

    Have a wet/dry shop vac? Utility sump pump? Need something to get that water drained more. Otherwise get a flexible bucket (old ice cream pail) and start bailing.

    When I put in my pool this time, I made a slight divot in the sand on the center of the area. I then centered the pool bottom on it, worked like a charm. I had the problem every spring of the pool not quite being in the exact same spot when I set it up, and it was a pain. (I take mine down for the winter)

    I used a flat sided garbage can to scoop out water. A steel mixing bowl also worked fine but wasn't as efficient
