So I have read a couple of posts about leveled and unleveled pools. For the most part people are saying if the pool is not leveled under 3 inches then the pool should be fine. Well I have two photos of my pool. I measured and it was like 1.75 to 1.85 in off compared to one side. My ground is in a slope we tried to leveled before filling with water and when the pool was half way filled it looked unleveled. We raised the legs about 2 inches and it looked better. Well when the water was filled it was still off by 1.75-1.85 in. Well not sure if its safe for this one season. I do plan of fixing after this season but will it hold up? Please help me I am super new. The pool is Coleman by Bestway USA Pools its an 18 by 4 round pool
Please help

You will most likely have future issues, as building up does not create a solid ground. The part you built up is likely to settle, resulting in being more unleveled, which may or may not result in pool collapse/failure.

My Plan is to fix it after this Summer Season. The parts I built up I used wood planks so idk if that helps. I just need to know if it's safe to use this summer and then fix the leveling after the season. Please let me know guys. I appreciate all the help

Hi! Thanks for the call out Lorri!

Did you take pics of the ground after you leveled it? I would love to see the "planks of wood" you used as well.

The water level looks good. I want to make sure the base of the pool is taken care of to be on the safe side.

With 4 kids of that age my worry is about them getting the water rocking and rolling and causing the legs to sift off the blocks. I don't think it is safe :(
