Yeah, but that's super large material and anything you put to Full it is going to settle into the granite- especially sand.

Only problem is she did not punch any holes in the bottom of the pool. Now for the kicker, homeowner would like an estimate to fill with sand, yes sand, and pour concrete on top.






So what are you going to do there?

Short of taking all the granite back out I might entertain the idea of pouring a concrete slurry and vibrating it down. Might fill the voids. Otherwise a nice wood deck over the top. ..

That pool is absolutely hilarious. Every day bringing 2 boxes of scraps home for 3 consecutive years lol. How is that pool not overflowing just from rain/snow melt if there's no holes punched in the bottom? That's insane. I also see tree rings like that everywhere here in Pittsburgh. I'll have to snap some pics next time I'm out and about if I remember. There's plenty of funny ones in the Burgh.

Well, it saves a lot of time gathering wood to simply build the fire pit around "wood"

The pool most likely has a vermiculite bottom in it.. Water will soak through it..
