I put my fiberglass pool in last August. I am in North Jersey. I let the ground settle for about 8 months with the intention of doing concrete around the pool. I actually bought the Vastec coping so I could pour my deck right to the edge of the pool. Now I am torn between doing pavers or concrete. Price aside, what I really need to know is.....is it safe to use the pavers? I have read on a few sites about "locking" the pool in with atleast 3 feet of concrete. Will my pool really have a better chance of popping if I use pavers? The guy who put the pool in said to use whatever decking I wanted. Just looking for some opinions on this. Any thoughts, advice, or ideas are greatly appreciated.
