I picked the most level spot in my yard and still found a few rocks. One of them is not coming out. I have a small tractor and was able to remove a few up to 20 inches in diameter. Most were on one side of the pool which is where the last one resides the size of a small planet. I plan to drill and split the top off of that one. If I can't I might move into a direction by 2-3 feet and hope I don't find new rocks out there. Hate to do that though as I'm moving further away from my deck (which was also part of the plan to tie into it some day.
Question: Since I removed a few rocks, that spot is now soft. Should I fill in and pack only stone dust (crushed lime stone) in there? I know you are NOT supposed to build up and I"m not but these rocks were kind of all in the same area (which will be near the edge of the pool.
Seems most of the people on this board have had their pools installed but have watched the process closely. Anyone have to deal with a rock or ledge? what did they installer do?
As for installers I called several. Price did not bother me but the lack of interest in coming out to give me a quote and no call backs from several steered me away from waiting around for someone that likely living day to day with their operations. I have installed a couple of pools in other properties that I have owned so not an impossible job for me just new headaches being unearthed (sorry for my lame joke .
