Pool liner touching a few poles

This is the third time I have removed the water from the pool. I have leveled the outside, the poles, but the inside is not level.
I partially filled it and then it started touching and I stopped to assess it. None of the other poles seem to be touching currently.

is this safe to completely fill? Most of the time it’s just us floating besides my 5 year old son who likes to splash around. Can I just re-enforce it? Will it be fine? I live in Chicago and I don’t have a lot of room and the thought of flooding my neighbors gives me nightmares. This is my first time building it and I did it mostly alone so that’s why it looks how it looks. I just want it up for the last month of summer

Welcome to TFP :)

You should be able to slide that leg out just a little 1/2 to 1 inch... It should be fine after that :)

For me the liner always touches the poles and that strap becomes tight all the way around. If everything is 100% level, the liner will push the poles out slightly out of level so if the pole legs are on a paver make sure it starts on the inside edge of the paver, and the pole will probably end up in the middle or outside edge of the paver when the pool is full.
