Hello and thank you for all replies in advance!
Just installed a new AG pool, 30' round, steel walls, w/resin uprights, on 3' sloped lot. Lots of leveling and tons of sand,we used a contractor for that part, install is complete.
Now we want to build our deck, we have about a foot around the pool up to 3.5' on one side.
See attached pics. Should we fill this in? should we also first put sand or gravel around the pool for drainage?
We plan a deck all around, however, if we back fill, we might opt for a paved patio on the high side leading up to the decking?
the deck will nearly be on the ground on that side.
The questions are in the details for us, we have never had a pool and do not want to create drainage problems or premature rusting of walls, etc...
Suggestions and pics appreciated!
