Semi inground pool, one straight wall leaning outward

Those legs don’t look level, and it sounds like you weren’t on a firmly tamped surface, allowing your support under the legs to sink.. I hear you about your husband not wanting to drain, but I would do so, and fix those issues. Better to do the extra work than to have the pool fail and someone get hurt.

No matter what I would dig before draining.
You don't want the dirt pushing in on that wall without water in the pool.

Dig first.
