    Introduction and desperate for help!

    Hey! I have been a member since last year, although I didn't formally introduce myself or post anything. I am a single mom of 4 awesome kids, ages 13,12 (girls) and 8,4 (boys)! We have had a pro series 15' pool for 2 years, and 15' intex for 5 years prior. We are also blessed to have a salt water filter system (thank God!)

    I am having a huge issue with standing water around my pool. Last year I put the legs on pavers (which was great) however... I dug out instead of laying flush to the ground. Ugh. I put a river rock path from the small concrete slab at the end of my deck stairs with stepping stones to the ladder. The back side of my yard (towards the fence and away from the house) is on a slight slope (slight until I was leveling, then seems like a mountain incline! Lol) so I decided to try to landscape around the whole pool and now I've made a huge mess as it's been raining non stop for 6 days and flooded (I was trying to redo the path in a way to run the water around the pool and down the side of the yard with the slope! The other side of the pool is the playset and trampoline (more level! Any advice on how to fix my mess?


    We have a 15'x48" Pro Series above ground pool - with salt water filter system!!! Year 7 and I'm trying to get more creative ... Really wish we could keep it up year round!

    No particular advice. But you can make a tool that will help you determine slope or level. It's called a bunyip. There are youtube videos and a few threads here if you search. A couple of sticks, some clear vinyl tubing (lowes or home depot) and some colored water.
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
