    Sand in the wood frame.

    I built a 2x4x8 treated lumber frame and filled it with sand. The frame is big enough to use 18 ft pool but it'll be used on 15 ft pool. It took me one weekend to build and I am so proud of it, but....

    Does sand shift even contained in the wood frame? Haven't thought about it until it's done.

    I will upload some pics later when I get home from work.

    It's AG pool (summer escape).

    I had built 2x4 wood frame and filled the sand in.

    I would like to see some pictures of it,I think the problem will be water or rain run off but from my experience with my Intex once the pool is full I have not had any issues with rain washing out the sand from: around it I added mulch to the top of my sand and have had no issues
