Why does the ground have to be level for above ground pools?

So that the water doesn't drain out of the pool and so the pool doesn't fall over. I agree with the answer above but I have a more detailed answer. In a round above ground pool the water puts even pressure on the pool walls, and if the ground is not level one side will get more pressure. The imbalance will cause the pool to collapse under the strain.

it is not recommended if you have steel walls exposed because the splash out will quickly eat away at them. you could build am impremeable wall around the steel walls however, salt in the air will still attack them rapidly.

Can dirt come in contact with above-ground pool walls as long as the pool level never drops below dirt level if there is only 6 to 8 inches of dirt around the bottom?

Dirt holds moisture or water, the walls of an above ground pool are thin, yes you can put dirt around the walls, however the trade off is going to be you will shorten the length of life of the pool walls because they will rust away, so you are the one that needs to decide what you want to do, you can put plastic between the walls and the dirt or sand that will give you some extra time before the walls and frame rust away. Just a reminder from me the bottom of all most all above ground pools have dirt or sand around the bottom of the frames and a little bit of dirt on the walls you should get 5 years or a little more before the frame weakens or the side or a wall blows out. your warranty should disclose this information, or call a pool dealer in your area.

How do you repair the outside pool walls of an above ground pool that is buried two feet down into the groud and has rusted so that the liner is coming through.?

I would just dig out the pool and build a new one, because you can't really fix the rust apart from scraping and sanding it off and the structure is weakened.
