Im about to start a install of a gently used 24' above ground Im just going to give a full run down of my plan of action if you folks could please provide some input as to problems that I could encounter....
I plan to sink the pool approx 19" so it will be level with my existing deck the hole will be dug 27' around so I have plenty of room to work. The pool is 52" tall my one question on the excavation should I dig 2 additional inches and then fill back in with 2 inches of sand? or just dig the 19" then put the 2" of sand and compact? I will be using cap block on my uprights for support. from there I will be using an armor shield pad and wall foam under my newly purchased J-hook liner. For the filter I will be using a 2 speed 3/4 hp pump but it will be 35' from the pool itself using 1.5" PVC I have a digital timer for it as well ( How long should I run the pump per day?) I will also be using a sand filter for now but may upgrade to a DE and am going to try the saltron retro salt generator it seems to have good reviews. We are scheduled to start digging on 4/5 so Im trying to get my ducks in a row.
Thanks for the help
