HELP!! Water went in, pool not level!!
We purchased the pool, leveled the ground to the best of our ability, and ordered the water which was supposed to come Fri. The water came today instead, two days before schedule. We were not 100% ready for it and now there is a very obvious lean to the pool now that it is filled that we did not see before. I don't know if we should drain the pool, or live with it. Any suggestions/advice appreciated!

The weight of the water will eventually cause the pool to breach and that could tear the vinyl so I would drain it and re-level. There are several good videos on the web for leveling the ground.

Drain your pool. Mine was not level. I had to drain it and re-do it. I re-did mine by putting it up and going around the whole thing with a level to make sure it was even. Keep checking it as the pool fills. Cause if you wait till it is filled, your to late.

It depends. I placed mine on what I thought was a level patch of ground. It turns out that one side of the pool is 2 blue squares (on the liner) lower than the other side. I used the blue squares in the liner as markers. I think this is acceptable. If the slope was greater than that then I would drain the pool and dig until level. So far we have had no problems.
