    unlevel above ground intex pool
    I neglected to set my 16' x 48" intex "easy set" pool (plastic wall/liner) up on a completely level surface. One side is 3-4 inches lower than the other side. Is this a significant slope in terms of danger or damage to the pool for future years? Is it likely to collaspe or burst or wreck the pool? As well, one support leg in quite close to our drainage trench (4 inches away). With pool use, could this leg slip at all and fall into the trench (8 inches deep) and cause the whole pool to collaspe? I really don't want to drain and re-set the pool. The pool cost as much as the water ordered in to fill it (we have a well). But I definitely don't want my children injured while playing either. What really are the chances that the pool would collaspe or burst with this type of slope? :o
    Thanks, Stephanie

    I would like to know the same thing. Did your pool wind up staying up? We have the same size intex pool and ours is on a 3.75" slope. My husband made sure one direction was level after digging for 2 days, but then did not check the left to right direction. I'm afraid of what will happen if we leave it up, but we also have people coming over to swim tomorrow for the 4th of July weekend. Please email me at [email protected] if you have an answer for me.

Some of the sand underneath our above ground pool has shifted. It is in the spot where the ladder is located. This has made the pool unlevel and pulled the liner down. Any suggestions regarding fixing this? Thanks.
