Dang! No fun.

It looks like the rail is level... now that the leg has buckled. It could be the angle of the pic tho. Was that section high before the buckle?

It was actually about 1/4-1/2 inch lower!! Had three small children in the pool all day, lots of splashing, then noticed this after they were gone. Intex is sending me two new legs as I’m still in the 90 day warranty period.
Ugghhhh,.. I have to start all over with salt, borax etc😢 I’m assuming the pool will have to be almost empty to replace those two legs. I’m just sick!

I used a bottle jack with a 2x4 to carefully lift up on the top rail when I needed to re-level one of my posts by about an inch. Maybe you could try something similar for swapping this out with minimal water drain.
