The place I want to put my pool had lots of trees and brush on it so I rented an excavator and went to town tearing it all out. I pulled up huge roots and basically ended up turning all the soil in the process. I want to place a 16' round summer escapes metal frame pool and from what I have read you do not want to backfill the dirt because it hasn't settled yet and can cause your level pool to tip over time. So my question is should I be concerned and what can I do to prevent this?
I am thinking I will dig down maybe 5" then tamp the soil down. Then buy a bunch of sand to fill in that space and tamp that as well. Is that going to be good enough or I am doomed?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
