So I decided on the easy-set 18' pool. I'm hoping to get 3 years out of it and then maybe upgrade to a hard pool if we still want one. I purchased a SWG also and I am planning on getting 1 or 2 of those solar water heating panels 2' x 20' black tubing and putting them on the roof of my house.
My lawn is quite flat but I plan on leveling it out anyway. Is sand good enough or does anyone have a better solution? Then I was planning on putting crushed rock around the pool to keep back the weeds.
Do I need a tarp under the pool? I was looking for a round tarp so I wouldn't have to look at it but not having much luck. I'm not sure if I even need a tarp... or can I get away with something else like thick plastic?
Thanks for any advice
