What material should I use for my pool base? And how much of it should I use?

If you have ground water concerns, you'll want to use a mix of either vermiculite and Portland cement or you can use what the pros do and opt for Pre-Mix.

 There are 4 choices to use for the pool base.

  1. Sand
  2. Sand & Portland Cement
  3. Vermiculite & Portland Cement 
  4. Pre-Mix; also call Pool Krete® or Pool Crete

We cover the details of each and when it is best to use them here in this blog.  <-- includes a chart for how much to use!

You can find additional mixing instructions in our Inground Pool Installation guide here!
