Getting ready to set up my above ground oval pool 18' X 30" 4 feet tall - walls are aluminium roll one piece and all around decking. The ground is cleared of sod and just a little more leveling to do. I have a few questions.
1.) Is it true that the patio blocks for the up rights should not be on sand?
2.) Is the sand only suspose to be on the inside of the pool walls?
3) Does 3 yards of sand sound right for my size pool?
4.) whats the best way to get it inside of the pool? (just shovel it over the wall? I say this because if the patio upright blocks are not suspose to be on sand - I have set up the pool walls first and then put the sand inside - is my understanding)
5.) Would it be best to use a "happy bottom" product vs. sand? (I would think you would still feel rocks through that)
6.) Should I use a foam cove instead of sand?
7) Is it easy to put a foam cove on an oval shaped pool?
I once set up a 15 round cheapy resin ( I believe Pool) it was very easy just put a little sand on the bottom and did sand cove. But this new pool I got has be confused in the areas above.
Thank you for your time and help
