Above Ground Pool Advice needed.

I just got a 10 x 30 Intex above ground pool. After filling it up, it is unlevel about 1 1/2 inches on one end.

Will this be a problem or should I drain it and level it out?

Thank you for any feedback.

That's a lot of water to throw out. There is no simple way to correct that without a lot of work. I would be inclined to leave it as is, but I am not a pool expert.

Leave it and remember to level it out next time you fill it. Otherwise, find some way to use or capture the water.

I had an 8x8' and ended up truckin' in beach sand. Made a crater, which made it deeper inside and made it easier to level when full.
