Road Base Gravel To Level The Ground

Want to know if you can use road base gravel to level the ground underneath your above ground pool? Instead of using sand that shifts and moves or even putting sand on top of it to prevent any tears in the bottom.


It sounds like we both agree, you should never level your pool area with sand. Sand should only be used as an even base under the liner, not more than 2-3 inches.

Good leveling material is dirt, crushed granite, crusher run, stuff like that. You want a material that will pack solid.

I imagine road base gravel would do that but have not had experience with it. Make sure your final grade is not too course, if so you could add a small layer of crusher run. You want a very smooth and solid surface before adding the sand.
