I have recently spoken to a guy who did just that and the job

that lasted him for 20 years and then he only had to replace the

liner the pool frame was still in good order. he used a powder

coated zincalume above ground pool.

Basically you dig a hole just big enough for the pool. if the

ground is sloped let the pool stick out of the ground on the low

side. level the bottom of the hole with washed river sand don't use

brickies loam as that stuff gets to hard. now build the pool inside

the hole setup the plumbing and fill it with water. You will now

have a gap around the outside of the pool that will have to be

filled with a sand cement mixture of 10 to 1.
