Aboveground In Ground
by Steve Thompson
I love the section on putting your above ground pool into the ground.
Was wondering though that since we live in Ontario Canada and the winters here can cause ground freezing and the frost line is around the 4' mark.
Would you suggest doing that here?
We have a 32' by 16' and it's 4' deep and was thinking of digging down approx. 3' and installing it like that.
Any thoughts or concerns would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Steve. I would try to find other people in your area that have done it and see if they have had problems. If others have done it successfully you should be just fine, if not, you may want to reconsider.
The hundreds of above ground pools I have installed in the ground have all been in Arizona where freezing ground conditions are not a concern.
Let us know what you decide. I sure many others have the same question.
