    Question Oval pool walls leaning out

    We had a 15x30 oval pool installed last summer.
    One side of the pool the wall leans outward several inches.
    It's the kind without buttresses.
    Is this normal or should I be worried?
    The installer is no where to be found so I'm not even sure where to go for help.

    Doesn't sound right at all. Can you post pics?

    That looks normal but I am by no means an expert. With an oval pool your walls will lean out some in between each of your uprights on the straight sides.

    thank you for your input. What has me worried is the post themselves are what's leaning. On the ends a few tilt inwards and on the long sides the posts lean outwards.
    I guess my main concern is if it's safe.

    If the bottom of the post is in farther than the top, that is a problem that NEEDS to be addressed. I speak from experience - we have just been there and done that SEVERAL times.

    Take a level out and check all of the posts for plumb. Don't go by appearance only - that can be deceiving. If some are leaning out then your installer needs to correct it.

    Duh - sorry. I posted before I realized I had your pool confused with someone else's. Yes I would be concerned about that. I am very far from an expert, but many real experts have told me this is true as well.
