I was at the Doughboy dealer today, looking at oval pools (12 X 24) for that is all that will fit in our dinky backyard. We were going over the pools and prices, and I mentioned that we had a 16 ft wide concrete slab we would place it on, and she stopped in her tracks and said that an oval could not be installed on concrete.
Something about how water wants to go round in circles, and so the buttress support needs to be buried in ground using a concrete block, to support the wall. To keep it from going round.
I was very surprised by that, so I thought I would check with y'all pool experts?
Is it possible to install an oval hard sided pool on concrete? If not, are there any work arounds?
I guess we could go to an intex soft sided pool if it won't work.
Billy Preston/will it go round in circles?
