depends on the size of the pool. I just bought an 18x33 oval and will get pros to do everything. on the 33ft linear, it can only be off about 1 inch, so the guy doing mine will use a bobcat, and transit level to shoot it. DONT think it is level if it's not, and DONT backfill UNLESS you have time for area to settle, will compact the hell out of it and use a portland cement
to help level/harden foundation. If it's a small round pool, you can be off a little more. The rule is always dig down to level, NEVER build up. I'd pay to get someone that installs above ground pools to level area, definitely better than a tearing down and reinstalling pool (or having it collapse!)

straight board, level, string and line level. Tons of patience

Hi, I would spend a few dollars and rent a transit. Once the pool area is level take the time and level each individual foot plate.

That is the best way to make a pool level.

Best of luck, Dennis
