Thread: Concrete pool pad not quite level

    Concrete pool pad not quite level

    I am in the process of replacing an 8 year old round 24 foot Intex AGP with the Sun and Play Oxford. The pool sits on a 25 foot round concrete pad that is not quite level, off by about 2 inches. Is there a way to level this? The Intex pool never had a problem other than noticing the off level of the water surface to the liner. Thanks in advance for your input.

    I don't know any way to level the slab easily.

    2" out is not bad but generally we think the maximum should be about an inch

    You might want to inquire about slabjacking services in your area.

    You might be able to just pour new concrete on top of the existing pad.

    My thoughts are:

    1. leave it as is (the old pool lasted 8 years).
    2. Self-Leveling concrete.
    3. Add sand.
    4. I also read an article that said to use shingles to level the bottom rail.

    The concrete pad is raised above ground which should discourage washout. Reusing gorilla pad, adding 1/2 inch rigid sheets and coving.

    Thoughts?
