I ordered a semi-inground pool from the pool factory and started digging. Once we hit about 2ft it was all sand. Is that going to be a good enough base? I know people add sand to the bottom which was my plan, but will the sand be a problem before I add the sand inside of the pool wall? I've seen people start with dirt and clay, but can't find anything on sand. I started leveling it at the lowest spot so the bottom is undisturbed and it feels solid walking on it, just not sure if I need to do something else to prepare.
Here's some updated pics of the progress. Got the ground all leveled and pool wall up. Ran a sub panel outside to power everything. Just finished putting the liner in today and plan on filling tomorrow! Filter is on the way so I'll probably start pouring a pad tomorrow or the next day.
