Hello, I have arrived at this forum because my family has finally broken me down and gotten me to agree to get a pool. At first we were looking at a package at Costco, but it seemed to small to really be enjoyable, so we have decided to get an Intex 12x24x52" Ultra Frame (I think). Roughly 8500 gallons.
My first question is on where this thing will eventually live. It's marked and I will be applying grass killer so I won't have to dig up the sod. After that I will be getting some type of medium delivered and will level it and rent a compactor to tamp it down.
What would be the best thing to use to build up the area? By my eye there might be six to eight inches of difference between the highest and lowest spot on the area (which I'm figuring will be 14X25 feet). I was thinking fill dirt would work but didn't know if any of you would use pea gravel. I'll be putting a gorilla mat under the pool.
Thanks for reading!
