Wife and I decided to set up an above ground in order to teach the kids how to swim this summer. the place that would be ideal is technically our front yard and the 18' round intek we bought would almost cover the grass completely. So we are using a section of what we previously used as parking.....a large gravel area. Had a 6" slope across the 20' area we decided on.
I have boxed in the low side with 6" timbers that end about halfway back up the grade, next will be a gravel base about 4" deep...a mix of VA red clay and sand ontop of that..going to rent a tamper...pavers for the feet and filter...., and then we get to my question.....
I bought 11 sheets of 3/4 pink foam....I have seen alot of folks using 2" foam....is my 3/4" thick enough?
will post pics soon.
