    Intex pool on DG

    Hi

    Looking for advise.
    I have leveled an area for a new 18 x 9 foot Intex pool.
    I have compacted 4" of Decomposed Granite for the pad. It is 21 x 12 framed with 4x4 treaded lumber. Everything is completly level and have given it several week to settle.
    I plan to put down a trap and a Gorilla Pad, Do I still need sand under the pool between the trap and Gorilla Pad?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Bob

    Sand at this point would be "gilding the lily". Optional, but not completely needed.

    Thanks
    At 62 working in the Texas sun moving 6 yard of DG on my own I really do not want to move another wheel barrel.
