I'm installing a 24' round AGP on a slope that is about 18" off level. My landscaper is going to prep the site as if it were a paver patio: excavate top soil, fill with DGA (or QP as some call it) and tamp. He suggested that the traditional concrete blocks under uprights are probably not needed, as the DGA base will essentially be one big block. It would certainly make it easier to just place the pool directly on the DGA surface, then spread sand inside. Has anyone ever done an install like this? Do you think I should still use the concrete blocks under the posts? Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
