Yes that was my thoughts trying to locate a rental service in my area. Started to drain the pool using the drain for tonight. This is a nightmare

I'm mostly a lurker but have been reading and enjoying the pictures as your hard work results in your pool getting clearer and more sparkly. Sending good vibes your way and hoping you'll be back swimming soon. :sunny:

Oh no doubt I surely will get it right but I have to take the safety of my kids first. So I prefer to get it corrected first. I will post some pics of my progress. Reserved a submersible pump for tomorrow to get some of the water out. Already step up reserve pool to pump water into.

Bummer! You can rent a sump pump at HD/lowes or buy a cheap submersible pump at Northern Tool or Harbor Freight.

Aw, sorry to read you are having more trouble. Glad, though, to see you are willing to fix it correctly! Here's wishing lots of nice swimming days when you are done!

DAY 6:

Ok updates I'm at work getting it done drained pool to backup pool. Still keeping water at SLAM level in the backup pool. In the 2nd and 3rd pic are the legs that sunk into the ground. I'm able to lift them up by hand and some elbow grease, now as the water is about 2 ft in the pool. So no jacking needed worked out great :)

I hear of folks using a water level to make sure all the footers are at the same height. The neat thing is, it has flexible hose so you can work around a pool the is up already.
