Finally Finished

Jun 11, 2007
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... :shock:

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