    What are you using under the legs?

    I think you will have problems if its off by more than 1-2 inches...

    there is nothing under the legs we had to dig one side down more and its the side where it starts about four inches off and as it goes around both ways it starts to level up as in it will go to three inches and then two and so on

    Mine is actually unlevel as well. It is about 3-4 inches unlevel on one side. It has been up since last summer and stayed up during snow storms... I put small cement blocks under my legs so they would not sink in the ground. So far mine is ok...

    Ours was off by 2-3 last summer and I notices the pool would shake if the kids were horseing around in the pool, I would relevel it. It's a pain but it ay be safer.
