I've gotten some good deals on the pool and filters, but being from NY, there's no point in me putting the pool up now, so it will stay in the garage for the winter. I've cleared out a 20 foot circle for where I plan on putting the pool, and I ran electric underground to a post so that part is set. I still have to do some leveling and remove some rocks from the area. My question is, if I get a couple of inches of sand to help level it next spring, do I really need to go crazy with removing all of the rocks? Will a couple of inches of sand suffice? I will rake out as much as possible before hand.
I'm also considering putting the wall insulation on top of the sand as some of you have stated. If I do all that, I should be protected from the rocks. My plan is to keep the pool up during the winters and take my chances rather than packing it up and then having issues the following season.
I also got a great deal on the 2650 Intex Sand filter and the Intex salt water generator which I got from Target for $100.
I have a garage full of pool stuff but no pool! LOL. I even got toys and floats! Can't wait till next spring. I really could have used the pool this year as it was hot. With my luck, we'll have a mild summer next year.
