Patio Blocks Under Above Ground Pool
I am installing a 24 ft pool in an area that used to have a 30 ft both round, I am planning on putting patio blocks under the entire bottom rail to get it perfectly level.
Is there any reason that I should not do it this way? I will use the existing sand to build the cove and cover the bottom.
Hi Bob. There is no problem with doing this as long as you are very careful to not let the sand wash out. Blocks can leave little uneven areas under the track that could possibly allow the sand to seep out.
As long as you are packing dirt in around the outside of the pool you should be just fine. If not you may want to consider the preformed pool cove.
Above Ground Pool Preformed Pool Cove
When you use the preformed pool cove you do not need the dirt packed around the outside of the pool to prevent a washout. The smallest little leak in the cove area can cause the sand to start washing out from under the rail. This never happens with the pool cove.
The blocks will work out great as far as keeping the pool level, nothing wrong with that at all.
