    Semi inground question

    Hi
    just found this forum and 1st time posting. Ok so had a 12x24 Quest pool installed yesterday installers did great job. I dug the pool by hand 18" inground and I'm wondering if I should put any type of extra coating on what's going to be buried like spray paint or something it is a steel wall and thought it might help I'm on long island so I do have pretty good soil sandy with good drainage any insight would be great thankyou

    Do you know if your pool is rated for burial? If it is I wouldn't worry about it. If it's not, coating it might be some insurance. Spray undercoating would be a good choice.

    Any thoughts on using tar? a friend of mine said he did this over 20 years ago and he still has the pool I do have some resin parts will the tar have any affect on those? The pool is 18 " in the ground.

    I wouldn't think it would have any adverse effects on the resin.
