So this is my first time putting up my pool.
After watching a few YouTube videos my first mistake was not leveling however I was ensured the ground was already leveled from last year (previous owners).
Anywho.. after spending the day filling it I went and checked on it and it seems that the legs are being pulled and kinda shifts when you touch it. My second mistake is I forgot to straighten that bottom band.. you guys think it’ll be a problem or no? It’s already about 90% full.
I can post a picture when it’s not dark out.

Hi, welcome to TFP! We can advise you better when you are able to post a photo, but it sounds like you may need to reset the pool. Does it look unlevel across the top?

I think draining and re-setting was the right thing to do. I think the way the legs on the right side of the first photo were leaning that they would have bent under eventually. Are those legs on pavers? You don't want to put them on bare ground but on top of thick patio blocks or concrete pavers.
