We installed a 24' doughboy last year. It "wintered" well in our cold climate (northern il). Our grade was approx."1 in 3" wall began to indent badly this last week due to heavy rains and water trappage against wall. we had to dig down to within 1 1/2' of bottom of pool,install drain tiles (with holes)around that side. after digging the wall down,the wall dent "popped" back out. hope that helps you. We completed the installation of an 18x33 above ground in this manner last summer. I would recomend that you excavate 2'-3' beyond the pool wall and slope the side of the excavation so that the earth does not come in contact with the sidewalls. We installed a deck between the pool and the slope, creating a level walk out to the pool, and hiding the excavated area.

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.
