Ok, so long at last...the pool has been delivered and the install day is Wed.
The installers I am using...I have watched them set up a pool and they did a great job! however....I had one big issue with something they did that I need some advise on.
When installing the pool, every install I have seen on here has been done by using the blocks under the uprights.
This company does not use blocks. Instead, what they do is mix up some cement, and spread it thick on the bottom plates with packed sand underneath.
When asked about this method, the response was "over the years of doing this in our area, we have watched the pools that have been installed using the blocks, and as the sand settles and gets washed out, we have seen liners damaged by the blocks so we switched to this method and have not seen any issues when doing it this way. We feel this is the best way for the life of the liner in this area."
He sounds pretty convincing when speaking to him and I do believe that HE believes this. I just still question this simply because I have not seen this done this way anywhere else!
What are your thoughts about this?
