You must remove all the sod where the pool will sit. Remove 2 inches of your sod from this area. Rent a sod cutter for a 2 hour period. Pack down the dirt or let it settle for a few weeks before you continue. Order enough sand for the hole to make the area completely level. Use a straight 2x4 (one foot longer then the length of half the circumferance of the pool) ie 15' pool use 8 or 10' 2x4. Use a level on the top of the 2x4 all around the sand area. The area is ready for the pool. This is the BEST way to prepare for the pool.
