now that you mention it, it does look like the sides of your pool are almost even with ground. mine were at least a few inches above the grade of lawn . our PB explained they needed to make sure the pool was the highest part of lawn so all rain would travel away from itActually, I misunderstood. It isn't making the pool shallower but bringing the edge/sides up, so that the coping doesn't rest below the surface. Hoping it can get done this week.
