Just want to start by saying everyone on the forum has been amazing and has saved me alot of time and money with some really good advice.

anyhow I have ordered my sharkline Matrix 15x30, the pool is 54 inches but I have a couple questions..

First..I cant find any schematics on the pool and was wondering if anyone with a matrix would happen to know what the distance from the bottom of the pool to the bottom edge of the rail, Im digging out this week and and would like to extend my existing deck out to the pool..

second..I know im looking at digging down about 18 inches.. can I back fill or rather burry the pool 18 inches with gravel?

thanks

Biagio
