Above Ground Pool - Kink In Wall

Postby StubbornPoolOwner32 » Sat 17 Aug, 2019 14:55

I am not draining this thing again (this would be three times). I coped around the bottom with a curve of sand and I guess put enough in there that it is absorbing the impact of my kicks from the inside. No matter how hard I kick it from the inside (yes, I know that I shouldn't be doing that), that kink is not coming out. That's a 3 inch thick paver under the leg. If I dig out either side it'll make it worse, right? I feel like if I somehow get the paver out it'll straighten out. Please don't tell me to drain it. I subconciously know that that's what I'm going to end up doing. Give me your hillbilliest redneck ideas - the season is almost over and I'm at that point with it. 18' diameter steel wall.

With out draining I would be inclined to excavate under the pavior and let the water level it out
When you are at the desired level wedge it and then concrete to stop it sinking more
