    Insect treatment

    I am currently in the building phase of my AGP. I am wanting to put some type of ant/termite treatment and weed/root killer on the ground before I put the sand and liner in. I was hoping someone could tell me of a few products I could use that would be safe for my liner and would do the job. Once the pool is up the perimeter will be treated as well but want to do as much prevention as possible. Thanks!

    I bought 4 ft wide 1/4 thick floor foam for mine, but didnt use chemicals. you could probably put plastic under the foam for more protection.

    Chemicals won't last. Try digging down an inch or two, add landscape fabric and then backfill and compact. The landscape fabric will keep weed and pests from coming up.
