10FT Swimming pool base

Postby NIKNAT » Tue Apr 21, 2009 1:11 pm

I have bought a 10ft round bestway swimming pool, for my sons 7th birthday. Was going to put it on a base of railway sleepers and then decking on top, but having price this up decided that its nearly double the price of the pool! :( .

Can anyone give me any other ideas of what I could use as a stable base?

Someone said sand but don't really want the pool, keep getting sand in it.

HELP :!: :!:

Thanks :? [/b]

Simply Build It

Assuming the ground is level you don't really need anything under the pool but its probably worth using a thick tarpaulin or piece of pond liner to portect against piercing.
