Hi All,
Hope this is in the right spot.
Going on 4 years of our 15'x30' oval pool and I'm noticing that one of the supports looks like it's leaning outward and I'm wondering if it's normal or something to really be concerned about. I'm not 100% that it wasn't always like this... never noticed before. In worried that it'll keep getting worse and collapse. Thx...20210318_183752.jpg

It kind of looks like it wasn’t installed straight.

Cant really tell with the cover on it and rocks around the base.

Casey,
Maybe this will help. There are 4 posts on the sides and then it starts to curve. The one i'm concerned about is the closest in the original pic. It is way off level, as is the one next to it (second from the curve). The next is perfectly level. I'm assuming all posts should be level for max support.

I can see that it's out from the first pic but I'd like to see the top of the rail. If the wall is sitting in both top n bottom tracks. If it is, it should be fine but if its not... that's a different story.

Have you noticed any high spots on the pool floor near those two supports?
I'd like to see a shot looking down the top rail along the side, a bit above. It's gonna be hard with the cover still on. Do you have any pics from the last 2 years?
