    AGP Back fill idea..

    OK so the pool company sent over their tech to finish installing the pumps and skimmer.....etc

    so I asked him about back filling the 1' high moat around the high side.

    These are the ideas he gave me, and thought I would share here and get some input from this forum....

    idea#1 - fill gap around pool with med. sized river rock.
    idea#2 - fill gap around pool first by putting down drainage pipe and filling with river rock over top of the pipe.
    idea#3 - paint the bottom of the steel wall with rhino liner (any truck bed liner) and then back fill with whatever i want.

    he said the truck bed liner will definitely resist corrosion if back filled with dirt.

    any thoughts on what would be my best approach here.

    thanks in advance

    I'd go with #2, but #3 would work as well.
