What is a normal operating pressure for a jacuzzi sand filter for an above ground pool?"
I used a sand base for our 20' round above ground pool. It's much easier to deal with after the pool is gone. Greener too.
Masonry Sand is used to level the bottom of a pool
About two bags per square foot.
Probably not going to be adequate.

I just put up an above ground pool and we used sand to level the ground. To level the sand, we used one of those string levelers and tied it to stakes on each side of the pool area to make sure it was all level.
If you are getting sand coming into the pool and have a sand filter you may have to replace worn laterals in the sand filter.
if you google - installing an above ground pool - you will get links to sites that post quite explicit directions good luck
yes, just sand will let grass grow through your liner. im in the process of getting vermiculite installed in my above ground pool, because grass grew through the liner.
First question: Why do you need sand. and two: You need another dimension [such as height] to have area right?
removed top soil then put sand down leveled sand tamped it.And your ready to setup pool.
That all depends on the size of the filter. It should say how many pounds of sand you need on the side of your sand filter.
Unfortunately, no. If the sand isn't level when you put the pool on top of it, the bottom of the pool will stay uneven after it's filled. Sorry.
Could be several things. If your pool walls are sunk into ground instead of setting on the ground, or pool is at base of a slope in the yard, and sand is washing out from under pool floor, it might just be a spot where heavy rains let water flow under pool wall and floor eroding the sand under the liner. Usually small pin-holes in the liner won't do much if anything to the sand… Read More
Looking at the chart shown here: http://www.backyardcitypools.com/AG-Pool-Sand-Volume-Chart.htm You'll need 3 yards of masonry sand.
Yes. This prevents weeds and grass from growing beneath the pool. I just had an above ground pool installed. The cove comes with a lifetime guarantee.
Swimming pool pumps do not use sand. You may have sand in your filter. The sand has to by removed by hand after taking th etop of the filter off.
Yes by putting an even layer of sand down you will protect the liner from the irregularity's in the ground and absorb impact from above.
You can get swimming pool filter sand or a number of other filter media that can be used instead of sand from most pool shops. You can also get sand from under above ground pools from a builders supply or nursery.
I always cleaned off the ground. Then I covered the area with sand. People will walk across the bottom of the pool in bare feet. You want it to be comfortable for them and you do not want the bottom of the pool to rip.
Enough to lay a 3 inch thick foundation.
It should be on "FILTER"
To install an above ground pool you will have to level the ground where the pool will be placed. You should then add a layer of sand. You should lay out the bottom rails and connect them as shown in the directions next. Install the walls, uprights, and wall bars. The liner will be installed last.
For above ground pools you usually need at least 2" of double or triple screened sand. It is very important to have at least a 6" cove. The cove is where the wall and floor meet. The angle of sand is to prevent the liner from squeaking out from under the metal wall of the pool. If that where to happen the pool will eventually collapse
In southern California the cost to install an above ground pool vary by size of the pool and the prep work needed to level the area and the cost of building materials like sand. Generally speaking, most pools cost between $800 and $1500 to have professionally installed. Pools with a deep end and pools partially buried in the ground will be substantially more.
Believe it or not I used pea gravel. It was half the cost of sand and just as effective. I used three tons for a 24ft. above ground pool and I also put a tarp between the pea gravel and the pool. No problems at all. Works great for me, but maybe not for everyone.
Specifically where is it leaking? At the gasket? Replace gasket.
3"/75mm of sand over a solid level surface.
Very clean sand with all grass removed and leveled
Definitely, If you don you will wreck the liner
use sand to create a level surface
That depends completely on the slope that you're trying to compensate for. Figure for two inches at the high point, but settle for one.
You say, 'where my above ground pool use to be.' Is there a shallow, medium or deep hole to be filled? or a slight depression? A hole would be better filled with a mixture of sand, soil and gravel, especially if a lawn is to be laid over the top. A slight depression would still need a mixture of soil and sand. Sand alone could be washed away by heavy rain. Less likely if the… Read More
HELP A pool leak I fix in my vinyl above ground left a sand cavity right beneath it it's right on the edge - hat do I do -- immediately fill with sand to help withstand the water pressure?
Well, all I knew to do was to rush to Home Dept & got some sand -- not pool sand, the coarser landscaping type, and packed as much in as possible.
Hi..I have a Haywood model s-180t and my manual says (this is for my above ground pool)...150 lbs. of 0.40 -0.55 of filter sand. Vickirevans1@aol.com
Yes but you will need to put sand under the liner to protect it from impact.
use compaced sand to leavel out the groung and have a smooth surface.
If the pool is partially or fully in the ground make a sand cement mix of 10 to 1 and back fill with it leaving a couple of inches for soil to grow grass on.
assuming you have a pentair 2.3 21" 51-1/2" 50 24,000 225 lbs.20 grit silica sand If on the other hand you mean the amout of sand needed to cover the floor of a 21' round pool to a depth of 2", the answer is 3 to 4 tons.
i also use a 5000 gallon pool above ground and i use a 1 1/2hp pump. with a sand filter.
Experts do not recommend using plywood under and above ground pool to level it. Even with plywood you would have to level the ground underneath and you would need a layer of sand. Plywood may warp over time and that would result in you having to take the pool down to remove it.
If you mean under the liner yes it protects the liner and makes it more comfortable for the users.
