Ok, sorry for all the newbie questions..but I just want to be sure I am doing this right the first time.
Anyway, I had my pool area excavated professionally.....they actually dug the high end of our yard out to match the low end, and then took it down another 3 inches below level. Then the brought in enough "screenings" (gravel dust type stuff) to raise the bed up 2-3 inches...then they compacted it down...It's a very nice, hard surface now..and they laser leveled it all the way around and it was all within 1/4"..pretty acceptable for a 34ft circle I think.
Anyway...I got my bottom rails put together now and have the wall installed in the pool...next is the liner. I am ordering a new one, so it'll be a few days before I can get to it. Should I have any issues with my wall sitting with no liner or water in if we get any thunderstorms or anything? I have braced the wall internally with 2x4's right now.
Anyway...before I put the liner down I'll install my foam cove, but do I need anything else down on the screenings, or can I lay my liner down right on that? I was thinking of maybe getting some carpet padding from home depot and laying it down, but I don't think it's necessary.
What are your guys' thoughts????
