    Default Out of level concrete piers

    I'm building a pool deck off one side of an above the ground pool and have recently dug and poured concrete piers. While filling one pier I must have "knocked it " out of level/plumb. Now I'm begining to build and have one pier which is almost 3/4" out of level. Should I chisel it to level or shim the post standoff or possibly cut the post on a bias? Please give me a suggestion. Thank you

    Probably the easiest thing will be to cut a wedge to plumb the post. Second best would be to cut the post to fit the angle of the pier. If you go the route of the wedge, predrill any fastener holes before driving the fastener so that the wedge isn't split or broken in the process.
