    Finally Finished

    Yey...I am finally finished installing my Above Ground pool. I have to say, other than

    My brother passing away (that was horrible)
    Bad ground prep contractor
    Bad Sand (see previous comment)
    Not knowing anything (yeah, this should be top of the list)
    Learning I know NOTHING about leveling sand bottoms

    It is beautiful. Right now it is balancing out, and other than Minnesota dropping about 20 degrees, and the bottom of the pool feels more like a minefield (not going to worry about it this year, most likely will drain it next year early and fix, technically it is a multilevel pool ) -- It is good.

    Thank you very much for all of your help


    PS- Really, I know NOTHING about level sand. It is sad...and I complained the ground wasnt level to begin with...g'z...

    Also, I now know what masons sand is, and why I should have used year gorilla bottom
