    Outside of ABG Pool...what did you put down around it?

    I used foundation coating on the side of my pool before I put dirt around my pool. The foundation coating(I used Henry’s) is rated for steel and all other types of metal. If you have sand on the bottom you need to put some material that will stop wash out. At my parents house we used flashing...

    Winter Cover for Above Ground Pool in Windy Conditions. Help!

    My pool growing up was in a windy spot. We used old pool chemical bottles filled with water and strung them to grommets on the edge of the cover. We had probably 25 bottles around the edge(16 x36) weird size I know, but this worked reasonably every year.

    Above ground Built into slope... am I DOOMED?

    Rich D, Thanks for the detailed response. I just have one or two questions. The side by the deck will be extended and won’t have to worry about the 48” boundary (opens up to house and will have door alarm). So on this side is it ok to backfill to grade in that section then slope the ground...

    Above ground Built into slope... am I DOOMED?

    So when you say foundation coating you mean one that is basically tar? Any suggestions? I’ve looked at so many products my brain is numb. Something like the link below? Henrys

    Above ground Built into slope... am I DOOMED?

    Pool company said to use something similar so I guess this is the route I’m going to go. I plan on sloping the ground away from the pool and draining to the low side with the black pipe with holes. Thanks for your input!

    Above ground Built into slope... am I DOOMED?

    This is what I’m working with. Doesn’t seem too bad at all, guy did an awesome job digging in my opinion. So the plan was for some corrugated pipe on the deck side draining to the bottom, should work right? 2nd thought, should I spray the side of pool before it is back filled with some dirt...

    Above ground Built into slope... am I DOOMED?

    I’m not sure, I have to check. My situation is somewhat different than this but I see why you sent me there. I’ll send pictures tomorrow as maybe I’m not being totally clear. I don’t want to fill in too much as I need 48 inches from ground to rail. I am just worried about water making moat...

    Above ground Built into slope... am I DOOMED?

    Hello, Soon to be pool owner. Excavation is tomorrow and install is shortly after that. Site has to be dug 20” to be level so it’s not as crazy as other stuff I’ve heard and read on here. I’m just worried about water collecting around it and ruining my pool. Basically what measures I...
