Thread: Concrete before liner and water

    Concrete before liner and water

    Is there any reason I cannot have my concrete deck poured this fall and then do the floor and the liner in the spring? My 20 x 40 steel wall pool is backfilled and I could have it graded for the concrete in a week or so. The advantage to me is savings in the off season for concrete work. We have been having 60 degree days and maybe if it was warm enough I could put in the liner but I didn't want to get stuck and I rather do that on a much warmer spring day.

    No problem that I see really, other than the hole getting dirty with debris etc. Warmer weather is a good idea for any liner

    How much cheaper is it in the winter?
    I'd wait til spring and let the fill settle. Any overdug steel wall pool will have some settling of the backfill, sometimes a lot. All the vinyl guys I know, at least around here, recommend waiting until the spring to pour the deck.

    The longer you let it sit before concrete the better, as it gives the backfill material time to settle without affecting the concrete.
