Slight leg lean in all the way around

Hi there
I have an Intex XTR 18 x 52 inch pool that I finally got put up after several weekends of leveling and prep. It's not perfect but it is under an inch out of level (approx 3/4).

The only odd thing that I can't seem to find examples of people with the same issue is that all of the legs are leaning in very slightly. Maybe I'm just being a hypochondriac (nothing new there) but it is the same amount all the way around (between 1/8-1/4 inch) and if I pull back at the top of the frame (simulating pressure pushing outward from the inside like if someone was pushing against it while inside the pool) they are perfectly straight.

All things considered and since it's consistent all the way around my thoughts are it's probably going to be ok, but would definitely appreciate some advice on this.

Thanks!

Do you have any blocking under those feet? Hard to tell in the pictures
Yes, 12x12 patio blocks. It looks like the feet moved back slightly on the blocks during filling after 1 foot of water had been put in. From what I've read elsewhere it sounds like that is normal.

I did go around while it was filling up to 1 foot of water and recenter/straighten any that had got out of whack, but it didn't need much, so this movement/settling was subsequent to that.

I guess I was expecting the water weight to put more stress on the frame. If I pull back on the leg at the t-joints, simulating stress, then they are straight again according to the spirit level. When I was checking the level I pulled each leg out so it was taut, maybe I didn't have to be quite so rigorous with making sure it was taut :)
