So here is my concern im lost. we dug out our area where the new pool is going to go. Our yard is like a 15-20degree "u" shape on both sides of the "u". we dug out to the lowest area and just filled in with 4 tons of sand yesterday. I was wondering:
1.) we have a ~12" drop on 2 sides of the pool, what should I do to prevent the dirt from dropping in?
On the other side of the pool I have a drop off a little like 1-2" out of the diameter of my pool. im planning on putting a 6"x6"x8' anchored into the ground to prevent the sand from shifting downwards.
The last side is 1-2" down from the grass, im thinking is need to do something with diverting the water else its going to wash into the pool from the side. Thoughts?
2.) I called intex today to ask them and they said they dont recommend me to put masonary sand underneeth the pool due to it shifting. Im like WTH: I am at a loss b/c everywhere I read it states to do so. I am planning to put patio blocks under each leg, is the sand going to be an issue? or should I dig it out?
