Bumpy uneven ground

Hi y’all,

I got this used intex pool in the beginning of the summer and I have drained it a few times due to the legs sinking and this is possibly my last attempt. I have never owned a pool and I honestly rushed to put it up in anticipation for my son.

Ive leveled the legs, mainly with little pavers but a few with wood to make it more stable, the water doesn’t really look off to me but I know the liner has wrinkles, the ground under it is lumpy and I know there is a big dip in the center of the pool.
It dips in one spot like 2 inches. You can sort of see it the photos.

Should I just take it down? Is it ok to have it up till the end of august?
I’m worried of the liner breaking, honestly I’ve done it mostly on my own and I don’t want to have to do it again.

I live in the middle of Chicago and I don’t need all that water rushing into peoples houses if it breaks.

looks pretty good from the pix, how level is the water from the top rails? these pools are pretty tough, I wouldn't worry about the bottom too much. read up on water chemistry, get a good test kit, and enjoy your pool!

I think it’s only about 1.5 inches off from the lowest to the highest point. I’ve been looking at kits. I’ve done so much reading. Thank you!

what seems like a high price will pay for itself in a couple months compared to useless strip tests or what a pool store will do to you.
