Hey guys how are you all doing tonight? I have a quick question that I am unsure of. I have a customer that wants a paver patio put in which is fine no problem. However the patio is going were an above ground pool was. The pool was on top of a pad with 2a and then masonry sand on top of it. The pool was there for 10 + years. My question is would it be ok to use that as the base or would it need to be re excavated and a new base installed. Part of me says it would be fine for the following reason, the pool once held somewhere in the range of 40000-50000 pounds of water (assuming my calculation is correct). That is quite a bit of compaction over a long period of time. Either way what do you guys think?
