    Weather problems and backfill

    Have my pool in for 2 months and grew have had constant rain. I have had to drain water out every couple of days. Backfill has not been completed because everything is soaked. Was thinking about buying a truckload of dry dirt if I can find it instead of trying to use the wet clay that came out of the excavation. Have 2 -3 days of no rain and want to take advantage of it. My yard has 2 - 3" of standing water! Suggestions for protecting my installation are appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum.

    You don't say if this is an IG or AG pool....I assume IG.

    Can you cut a trench to let some water drain? There's just not enough info in your post to be of much help......sorry.

    I will say that a truckload of dry dirt will be a complete waste of your money.....assuming you could find it with all the rain.
