Above ground pools get a bad rap. It's true that they can be less than elegant sometimes, but, as seen here, they can also be just as lovely as traditional swimming pools. http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/above-ground-pools-171707

    How To Build A Circular Area For Above Ground Pool? I am putting up an 18′ round intex pool for the summer. Since my yard is not level, I have to back fill a large section of the area. I would like to frame it with 4 X 4 and then back fill it. (I had a 12′ one last year and used landscape edging to hold back the soil, but the weight of the water caused it to buldge out and the pool was off level, so it seems that railroad ties are the way to go but I am open to suggestions). I just don’t know how to figure the measurements out. What shape should it be? Octagon? Decagon? How long would each 4 x 4 be? What degree should the angle at the ends be cut to attach them? Since I have to bring the soil through the backyard by wheelbarrow, I would like to make this as efficient as possible. Thanks!

    What Should I Do With My 18′ X 48″ Intex Ultra Frame Above-ground Pool, Now That It Is Unlevel By 9″? Like most people that are installing a pool for the first time, my housemate took a look at our yard and said, “eh, looks pretty flat in that spot. Let’s put the pool there.” With the help of a leveling device (one of those things with the bubble in it), we soon discovered that we were wrong by what we thought was 3″.

    At that point, we did end up TRYING to level the ground, and got it to where the drop seemed to be a puny 1 inch. Then we set up the pool and filled it over the next 24 hours or so. Not sure why we didn’t stop right away, because now the water isn’t merely one inch off level, but NINE. (actually we didn’t stop because one particular household member wanted the pool ready for Memorial Day; plus we wanted to make sure the filter worked.) Anyways, it’s extremely noticeable, and you can pretty much feel the strain on the low side just by looking at it. As it stands right now, two or three of the little white clips that hold the top support ring together have snapped or been swallowed into the rounded T-pipes. The legs on the low side are leaning towards an outward collapse, and they seem to be pulling the legs on the sloped sides ever so slightly in the same precarious direction. The pool isn’t at a 45 degree angle or anything like that, but it does look slanted enough to cause big problems.

    So my question(s) are these.

    1. How long can this thing keep from collapsing, assuming no human interaction? (except maybe getting the filter running)
    2. Would swimming be an absolute no-no?
    3. If not, could it last an entire season with people swimming in it all the time?
    4. Assuming a collapse, what would be damaged? Would the vinyl tear? Would the T-pipes snap in half? Would the support legs do the same?
    5. Should I just start bailing it out like a madman? And draining it too, if we can get the adapter to finally work with our hose? What if I can only use the adapter– I need it to force open the drain plug– would the water drain out safely without destroying the adapter? Would I be able to stop the water from pouring out by simply untwisting the adapter from the drain plug?
    6. Is there any alternate way to stop it from draining once it starts?
    7. It’s only been completely full since last night. It was filling since the night before that. Could the vinyl have already been warped from the 25 tons or so of water currently in the pool? If so, is the pool now unusable?
    8. We just got a saltwater system. If we pour in enough to handle a full pool’s worth of water, but we are forced to drain most of that water for the time being, will the oversaturation of salt damage the pool liner?
    9. This is a leveling question, for future reference: is it good to lay down a thin layer of that stuff that gets put under blacktop (“egg gravel” my grandpa seems to keep calling it??) before placing the pool? It’s supposed to pack better than sand, and I’m pretty sure it’s helpful in getting a level surface.

    I realize my questions have questions within them. And I realize that I have a lot of questions. So I’m sorry about how many there are. But any answers would be greatly appreciated!

    If I Have A Stormwater System Underground Is It Possible That I Could Somehow Get An Inground Pool? I don’t really think it is possible. But do you think there is anyway you could make it work with the inground pool? And if not could I get an above ground pool and put it semi in ground on a slope? Thanks
