    Use of Pavers

    We are putting up our 20x48 Proseries pool, I want to use pavers but will using the pavers put stress on the liner if the pavers are above the level ground once the water is in?

    Welcome to tfp, rthawkins

    What are you putting under the liner?

    If you are putting sand, it likely will flow out under the bottom rails where there will be a sizable gap.

    What type of liner are you using?

    If you are using something else like extruded polystyrene foam (what I did) then if it is an overlap then it should work fine. If j-hook or bead, make sure you install it on a warm sunny day so it has a chance to stretch into the deep cavity, since the manufacturer is expecting at least 2in of sand inside the pool.

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    Under the liner will be the manufacturers tarp, and also another heavy duty tarp to cut to the size of the pool. The manufacturer does not suggest the use of sand, this is just a ProSeries pop-up pool 20X48. The actual pool itself is "the liner" with a metal frame.
