Herein, how much sand do you put under an above ground pool?

Sand Depth Also, sand under an aboveground pool acts as cushioning for its floor, making it more comfortable for feet. The standard depth of sand that should be used under an aboveground pool's floor is 2 inches.

Secondly, can you put above ground pool on pavers? We put pool on at least an 8-inch base of fine sand covered with a foam board for additional protection. This needs to be leveled so as to also provide the best water placement. Don't use the paver base; however, you may be able to use the pavers to contain the sand. You can do it on pavers, or concrete.

Likewise, people ask, do I need to put sand under my pool?

The only pools that require sand as a base are vinyl lined ones. The sand is easily troweled flat and smooth and provides a compactable surface free of any rocks or debris with sharp edges that could puncture the liner. Nowadays, it is mostly only used under above ground pools.

How do you prepare the ground for an Intex pool?

Use a line level on the string to measure for level at 12-36 points around the pool. Use flat shovels or a sod cutter machine to remove turf, and lower the high spots. Add a one inch layer of sand. The Wrong Way: Raise the low spots by adding sand – not checking for level.

Lay out a layer of sand 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5.1 cm) deep across the work area, then roll over it with the tamper. If there are any areas that you need to level, use crushed limestone instead of sand.

Can you level a pool with water in it?

There is no way to raise a pool with water in it. Any attempts to do so would disturb the cove and put to much strain on the liner. The pool water level needs to be lowered to just a couple of inches before any leveling can be done.

Should I put sand under my Intex pool?

I use a little sand under Intex pools, to cushion the bottom, but not for leveling. You can then just use a ground cloth over the dirt or you could cover the area with an inch or so of sand. A twenty four foot pool would probably use about 3 tons of sand.

Should you put a tarp under an above ground pool?

It's OK to use a tarp under the sand but not in place of it. A tarp will allow all the lumps and bumps of a dirt base to show through into the base of your pool. With just a tarp you still have to have a cove for the pool to be safe. The cove can be dirt, sand or foam, but it has to be there.

What kind of sand do you use for an above ground pool?

Mason sand, sometimes called mortar sand, can normally be found at any sand/gravel yard or masonry supply yard. It is usually measured in yards. It is very fine and should not contain any rocks or pebbles. This will create a very smooth bottom and is the most popular method to use when installing an above ground pool.

Can you put a pool on grass?

Installing an above-ground pool on a natural grass lawn is not a good idea, particularly if you plan on taking down the pool for part of the year. Since natural grass does get muddy and can be quite slippery when wet, there are also issues around safety and, of course, tracking mud and wet grass into the house.

What can I use instead of sand under my pool?

You could go with a thin layer of sand. Smooth it out, wet it down and pack it down good. Over top of that you could use carpet foam, carpet felt, indoor/outdoor carpet, something along those lines that can be found in the remnants, cutoffs or discount racks of carpet stores.

It is a good pad for the above ground pool on grass because it is flat and level. It will keep the pool in place, and it would not shift around. But don't forget that concrete is a pretty rough surface, and in the long run, it might damage the pool liner.

Can you backfill around an above ground pool?

Although most pool manufacturers do not recommend it, homeowners and contractors frequently use an above-ground pool as an in-ground pool. The pool must be filled prior to backfilling to prevent pool wall collapse and the water level in the pool must always be higher than ground level by at least 1 foot.
