Oval Pool Side Supports Sunk

Postby kvrsoccer22 » Mon 19 Jul, 2010 20:20

I just finished putting a new liner in a 33x18 oval pool.

The liner is in, the water is in, however, when I started putting the covers back on the top, the holes would not line up. I then noticed that some of the cement blocks that the side supports were resting on, cracked and sunk into the ground, causing the verticle rails to be angled away from the pool.

So now I have a full pool but 3 or 4 of the side supports are leaning out.

So now the problem is: How can I get this to be straight again without emptying the pool?

There is simply too much pressure to just push them up by hand. I need to somehow lift them and get new blocks underneigth.

Any Ideas or experiences with this?

Thank you.

Were there any good suggestions? I have a similar problem but with only one side pole.
