Pool Noodle Hack!!
As stated in my pallet hack for making a basketball court on rental property, being renter makes it hard to have some of the conveniences that you would have as a homeowner. Being both a homeowner and a renter, I like to face the challenges head on and come it up with an inexpensive solution!
This one tackles uneven ground and placing a swimming pool!!
I needed only 4
I bought these at the local dollar store for, you guessed it, a dollar each! Any color will do, I just chose to make everything match the pool lol!
Again ANY color duct type tape will work, I chose to match the pool!
With level on top of the pool sides, you can then adjust then as needed until level!
Levels dont lie! Lol!
Now you are ready to carefully tuck in the pool noodles. Be sure they are not in too far under the pool or it will be stepped on in the bottom of the pool. Also slowly curve them into place if needed at the corners!
They will then be out of sight and you can enjoy a level pool!
This sure beats digging up the grpund and then also having to re plant grass pr replace the dirt taken out from digging when the pool season is over!
Ps. We tried this on a snap pool, and it DOES NOT WORK! The pool eventually rolled over itself and the noodles! Lol...that just made me work that much harder on a solution for this uneven ground!

I can see how this could help many situations like mine with my 15ft Intex Prizm Frame Pool. In other videos I saw the use of leveling blocks of different heights to bring the pool up a couple of inches (2 in max) on the low side. The issue that I was seeing today was that when you elevate the poles on the low side, the side wall of the liner pulls up to the point that the floor of the liner is now exposed and being tugged on.
I will put these pool noodles underneath before bringing the pool back down hoping that it will let the pool liner stay elevated without any tension.
They are the best size and unlike the rigid foam panels. they wont crack or break if a swimmer stomps on them.
Will keep you updated after I try it out. Fingers crossed!
