shed foundation help

Need some advice on what to do about a shed foundation. I already have a huge concrete slab in my back yard, approx. 50' x 30'. I was looking at buying small arrow metal shed (either 10x8 or 10x12) but not quite sure the best option for the flooring. My dilemma is the rain runoff. With the yard sloped I don't want the water to pool up on the side of the shed. Should I build a raised platform to get off the concrete or just anchor it down to the slab? As far as the slope of the slab goes, if it helps, our pool we put up has about a 3-4" difference in water level from one side to the other(16' wide intex pool). Any advice will help.

You could cover the shed area with 1" or 2" thick concrete stepping stones. Then set your shed on top and anchor through the stepping stones into your concrete pad. The floor inside won't be totally flat but you will get your shed up an inch or two above the water.
