I live in Dallas, Texas and am in the process of partially burying a 18' X 52" round Intex Sequoia pool. The pool will be exposed 8" above ground with all areas above ground covered with tar paper. The hole has been dug and the ground is level. The contractor will be installing the pool in 3 days and I have a few questions.
1. Should I install an additional liner on top of the included one, just in case?
2. Should I backfill with a slurry of concrete and sand rather than dirt?
3. The GFI plug is 15' from the pool, should I have a GFI outlet installed closer to the pool pump?
4. Will the (2) 35 watt submerged pool lights require individual GFI outlets or may I plug the lights and pool pump into the same 4 plug GFI outlet?
Thanks for the help
