(Bancroft, Ontario, Canada)
I am almost positive, that I made and error in preparing the ground for my 27' Above ground pool.
The Initial Hole was dug too deep, and then filled back in (Almost 2' in some sections) ... The ground is mostly sand or sandy soil.
The good news is there are no rocks, and dead level!
What is the best plan of action for me ... I have about 2 weeks before my liner comes in... Right now I am pouring the water right to it in hopes that this will help pack the ground.
I would like to take this time and thank you for this great site, and taking the time for Rookies like myself!
Hi Fletch. Patio blocks can be used to support the pool in sandy type soil. I would at least use them under each upright. If you really feel the soil is not firm and packed, you could set the entire frame on blocks.
The more support you give the pool the better.
