    A Squishy Mess

    I got our new Coleman/Intex up this weekend. It was nice and hot and the ground was dry. After getting it set up, we got a few storms through and the area around the pool (exposed dirt) is extremely muddy. My foot went right down into it.
    I was planning on putting white or river Rock around the pool, but now I'm thinking that even with that, if I step on the rocks they will just squish down into the mud?
    My whole back yard is the lowest part of the yard as we have a view-out basement, so even if I put the corrugated pipe around the pool there is nowhere to discharge it to.
    The ground will dry out normally but I was thinking about splashing water from the pool making the ground soggy.
    Anyone have any ideas for me?

    You could do a sump pit but unless it is constantly muddy or bad that really is not needed...
