    We have done a few but none using the rubber liner, what we do is form the concrete and brush on a rubber membrane, I think the product is made by "king". Has worked good up to now.

    I am not familiar with specs for Swimming Pool construction. Is there an accepted drainage grade on the decking/skirting? Is it poured to drain water toward or away from the Pool? If it can be poured to drain toward the pool the liner can be laid directly on the deck/skirt. The installation that I pictured had a slight poolward grade so I didn't need to make any modifications to alter the drainage grade. I don't know if that was intentionally poured that way or if it was a shoddy job. If you need to alter the existing deck/skirt grade I think any material that you feel comfortable using would work.
    The mortaring that I referred to was for tying the rock together (if you don't trust your dry-stacking ability). The installation I pictured is entirely dry stacked.
    PM me if this is not completely clear.

    In my area the building code on pool decking calls for drainage away from the pool. Every pool I have encountered drains this way, not to say that we landscape around pools every day! More like 4 or 5 per summer.

    The pool companies in our area usually do their own landscaping.....then the homeowners call us to fix them as soon as they can afford it!!
