I set up a 15 foot wide 4 foot deep pool last night. The area seemed level and I prepped it with sand. I put a little water in the bottom and within a few minutes noticed it was going to one side more than the other. I left a couple inches of water in it and let it sit overnight.
This morning.... the low end has about 4 inches of water and the opposite side has about 2 inches. The rest of the pool is about 3 inches deep. So, I think it is 1-2 inches out of level. How bad is that? Does the pool have to come down and the ground be prepped again?? The thought of having to re-do it makes me want to cry.
This is a metal frame pool with the plastic liner.

Thanks ladies.... I did get someone to redo it for me and it is now level and I have the hose running more water in it right now. It was a little pricey to have someone else do it, but the finished result is so much better. :-) My kids are SO excited to have a pool!!
