    Is it OK to bury my 24'x54" AGP 2 ft into the ground?

    to make my AGP level with my deck, i am thinking of burying it 2ft into the ground. Any thoughts on this or anything I should do to the pool differently? I have having the dealer do the install and they said they will do whatever i want.

    I have the same problem. And after reading manual it says my pool can be above ground or semi-in ground. I did not now that when I order it online. So maybe check your pool instructions and you will be allowed to do that. If not then you will automatically void your warranty

    Check your warranty above all and if it is covered by burying 2 feet deep. If so, there are usually special instructions regarding on exactly how to backfill around it.

    they say that it isn't covered by warranty, but i am still thinking about doing it and taking my chances.

    Woodyp, i see yours is that deep, have you had any problems?

    what and how did you back fill it? did you do anything special when you had it back filled?
    I looked at the specs of your pool, mine are the same except i have 7" Resin uprights vs your 6" coated steel.

    You should be better off with the resin posts. I backfilled with what came out of the hole, mostly red clay mixed with some topsoil. Just shovel chopped up any chunks before doing so.
