Where To Buy Sand To Level Pool

Otherwise known as washed clean sand, manufactured sand and utility sand, it quickly becomes evident that concrete sand is most commonly utilized for construction and industrial functions. The sand is an aggregate material that is typically comprised of gneiss, granite, limestone, or traprock, depending on the quarry where it was crushed and screened.

As a result, yellow mason sand is a top pick for creating Portland cement mixtures, for mason grout and mortar combinations and as a base layer for bricks and paving stones. It is extremely popular for recreational uses such as volleyball courts and beaches and in the development of swimming pools.

After leveling the ground, you need a truckload of sand. The sand creates a base, protecting not only the liner of your pool but to provide a buffer against grass and weeds, or any other sharp objects you may have missed in the dirt.

Getting sand delivered is as easy as a phone call to a landscaping supply company or your local garden center. Ask for enough to create at least a 2-inch thick layer of sand across the entire area of your pool site, though if you end up with 6-inches or more this is totally fine.

Pool Cove is foam that easily peels and sticks to the inside base of the pool wall. The foam pool cove is 3-3/4 inches high and must be installed on top of 3 inches of sand. This will give you a total height of about 7 inches, the recommended height to support the liner and eliminate stress at the seam of the pool liner.

Beach Sand: Rarely used for construction applications, beach sand can come in a wide range of grains and color based on where it comes from. The grains can be very irregular from the natural erosion of the minerals in the ocean that produces the sand.

We only recommend fine mason sand for our above ground pool bases. Unlike other abrasive and coarse sand types that can puncture the pool liner over time, mason sand is fine, soft, and easy to work with.

Because of the manufacturing process and refining, mason sand does not have the debris and other materials that could affect the integrity of your pool liner. This sand acts as a barrier between your ground and the pool liner.

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. You can call The Pool Factory to find out the correct amount of mason sand you will need for the size of the above ground pool you have in your backyard.

A: It is definitely possible to install an above ground pool on a concrete slab. Typically, professional installers use the sandbox method to do this type of installation. This means that they will build a box using wood planks and fill it with mason sand. The pool is then built inside the sandbox, using the sand to make sure the pool is completely level. Also, oval shaped above ground pools have support beams that run underneath the pool that need to be buried. These will be buried in the sand inside the sandbox. You can see pictures of this type of installation in our photo gallery.

A: We do not recommend using dirt as the base for your pool. Dirt may contain rocks or pebbles that can damage your liner. We only recommend very fine mason sand for your swimming pool sand.

A: You need to pack down the cove you built using a tamp tool. Be careful not to scratch the pool wall when doing this. Smooth out the rest of the swimming pool sand base using a rake. Be sure to wet the sand prior to tamping it. This will help the sand pack better. Then tamp the entire bottom of your pool. Doing this will reduce foot prints in the sand and provide a firm and even bottom for your pool.

Stone can be used in lieu of patio blocks to level and support the posts and understructure of an above ground swimming po
