Finally, a post not about EDC, Reviews, River, or things like that, this one is just about setting up a pool. Simple right? Hah, you have not been around our house then. For those of you who don't know, we're crazy, and by we I mean my family. We don't just do something half way, in fact we do more than is necessary just because we can. Our backyard has a decent slope to it, something along the lines of about 20 degrees or so on average, this is not a good slope to have for a pool. Our answer?
Well, sort of. We built a 20'x20' box in our backyard anchoring 6"x6" posts 3' in the ground to take the weight with 4"x4" posts 3' in the ground towards the side with less weight. We also lined it with landscaping material to cover the cracks. The cap is made up of 10' sections of 2"x8" lumber cut to fit so this is quite strong (and also heavy, the entire thing is made of pressure treated wood). We ended up with 12" above ground on the shallow side and 26" on the deep side.
