    New Pool Owners

    Hello
    We are the owners of a new 15' above ground pool, preparing the ground at the moment to install over the next couple of weeks (weather permitting)
    Any tips?

    Welcome to TFP!!

    Recommendations:
    1. Order one of the Recommended Test Kits now. I think you are stuck with an over-priced K-2006 unless you can cross the border.
    2. Dig down and Level

    Hi
    I think we are just about level now, we are going to put a layer of fine gravel down to help with drainage under and around the pool, " treated ply, rigid insulation from Home Depot then the pad that came with the kit. Hoping the weather holds out! just one question, what happens when we have heavy snow?

    Lol I guess, bit chilly here for that when it gets to -35 C, its the snow that builds up on the pool cover I was wondering about, how do you shovel it off?

    Somehow you need to prop up the center of the cover to allow snow/rain to run off. This will make it easier to rake off any snow that does stick to it also. There is a good thread with some good options.
