    Unhappy helicopters falling in sand base

    While leveling sand for pool base a million helicopter tree seeds fell in sand. HELP PLEASE! Can't find pool store with straight answer. Do I need to be concerned? Laid drop cloth, sand and days of leveling. Planned to put pool up but now I fear helicopters posing a threat

    You are going to want to rake them out or you will feel them under the pool and they will start to rot.

    Re: helicopters falling in sand base

    Thank you for the responses. Being new here I kept looking at my inbox for a msg. Oops..What I did do: sand eas very well packed so on hands and knees i handed pick all I could on surface one by one, then hand skimmed the surface to find anything that was just below the surface. Next on my list: deciding on what size sand filter pump system I need.
    Thank you again for the responses

    If you're looking for a new pump, get a 2 speed to save on the electric bill. As far As sand filter, go with the biggest one you can afford. Bigger is better when it comes to filters.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
