    What kind of slurry mix should be used

    I have just buried a pool. Have not back filled yet. I'm not sure what kind of slurry mix should be used. Any info would be great.
    33' X 54" above ground round pool, burried 2.5". 1.5hp motor sand filter. Matrix resin pool.

    I would think the manufacturers installation guide would have the specifics of the slurry.

    Like these: http://www.doughboy-swimmingpools.com/inground.pdf

    Be sure the pool you are burying is rated for burial.

    Some people don't back fill, they build a retaining wall around the pool:
