Concrete pump pad sagging

Hello all, My question is I have a pool and the pump and filter sit on a 3.5 foot X2.5 foot 3 inch thick slab of concreate.I have PVC pipes that go to the equipment from under the ground. The slab is starting to sink down on one side were the filter is. This is putting stress on the PVC and I need to jack up the slab I can remove all the water from the filter to get rid of the weight.
One side of the slab is up against the house.
Thanks for any thoughts(no pipes go thru the slab they are next to it)

Try a fulcrum and lever to raise it into position, then shim under it with some bricks or such.

Temporary, but should work.

Ok Thanks

OK that is what I was thinking I was thinking some square stepping stones from Home Depot. I just hope that the slab does not break as I am prying it up. I think that might be the way to go. I will put the stepping stones under the corner and fill in with dirt.

I would take a 2x4 and tamp the dirt when I put it under there. It should help spread the load.
