Howdy To All!!
Well, I've been working on the installation of an above ground pool. I have the base all ready, level, and the blocks all cut in and level. I've spent more time than needed prepping this base and I hope that the extra time will pay off in the long run. The soil base is undisturbed and is a clay mix so it's very hard to say the least. This is my first do-it-yourself install of a pool but seems to be going well so far. I have a couple of questions and I'm looking for some advice from the experts here.
1.) I have a heavy liner material used in the oil field industry I picked up from my brother for free. This liner is in excess of 30mils. I was going to lay the liner material down first, lay the frame in place, and than put sand on the liner material. Is this the correct order to proceed in? If so I will install the heavy liner material tomorrow night.
2.) I was going to lay some sort of pesticide down for ants before putting the liner barrier material down. What is the best to use for this type of pool?
Since everyone likes a picture I will post the prepped site. I'm open to criticism as it generally extends to learning. Thanks for the help!!
