    intex ultra frame on a raised pad

    Has anyone installed a intex pool on a level raised pad, instead of digging into the ground?.... if so what kind of framing, and fill did you use...any pics would be great

    The landscaper used regular dirt for the fill. Then about 12" of crushed rock. He used something call a thumper every12" or so.

    Not sure of the exact size, I think it is 24 X 32.
    Pool comes down every fall and goes back up every spring.
