    New Pool, upright blocks ????

    Had a 30ft x 54 in AG pool installed about a week and a half ago. Put a 3in tile with sock around it and was backfilling around it, Deepest backfill area is around 15 in. Had a gully washer rain of about 1 1/2 in about a week ago. Tile was around pool but not backfilled. Anyway noticed a gap at the bottom of pool inward at one upright. Pool installer came today and beat on the block under upright , actually cracking it slightly but he pulled it mostly back in place and claimed we only needed a 1/2 block anyway. Afterwards,we noticed that the pool upright holder was sitting maybe an inch over the edge of the block. After looking closer , it seems nearly every upright holder is extending over the edge of the block 1/2 in to 1 3/4 in. Is this something I should fix and how About all I can think of is digging them out and installing a small piece of block under the overhang or maybe just stuffing it level with black dirt. Mostly sand around it now. I guess pouring some concrete under it to level it up would be possible. Is any of this worth my trouble and what are the consequences of backfilling and ignoring it ?

    Have you filled the pool?

    What brand and model of pool?

    Pictures would be great.

    In essence you are asking whether or not the verticals must be entirely on the concrete blocks?
