    New guy and new pool owner

    Hi all,

    My family and I just purchased a 30' Vogue Simbio AGP and are very exicited to get it up and running. I am planning on using the "BBB" method and I have the Taylor K-2006 test kit. I have read "Pool School" once and starting to read it again. Learned an awful lot so far. Look forward to getting to know other members.

    Re: New guy and new pool owner

    Thanks for the warm welcome... Quick question..Myself along with some neighbors are installing the pool this weekend. I have the ground prepped and ready to go. Should I put 12"x12" patio pavers under each vertical upright?

    I am going to use "Washed Mason's Sand" as a base for the liner....Will 2" of sand be sufficent?

    Thanks,
    Chad

    You need to put some type of "blocks" under the uprights and 12 x 12's are as good as any.


    2" of sand is fine. Are you using foam cove or sand cove?
