Pool Sand Delivery
Now that summertime is here, pool construction projects are in full swing. If you are building an above-ground pool or installing a pre-farbicated pool, you will no doubt need sand for your project. Don’t waste your time and money on multiple trips to the home improvement store lugging one bag at a time, Stone Farm Materials offers pool sand delivery throughout the Southcoast.
Sand is necessary when constructing or installing an above-ground pool in order to ensure a stable and even base or foundation for the pool to sit on top of. The type of sand used to lay beneath pools also helps to add a protective layer between the ground and the pool liner, preventing rocks that may be beneath the surface from penetrating your pool as the ground settles.
What type of sand should you use for beneath above-ground pools?
For the base of your above-ground pool you will want to use very fine sand that is free from rocks and pebbles, this type of sand may be referred to by a few different terms depending upon whom you ask, including pool sand, mason(ry) sand, mortar sand, concrete sand and more. If you are unsure of what type of sand you might need, just let the professionals at Stone Farm Materials know what the sand you are ordering will be used for and they will be sure to get you some fine pool sand for your next project.
How much sand do you need for your pool?
It is recommended to use a 2”-3” base underneath your pool. If you know the dimensions of your pool you can use our materials calculator on our landscape materials page to get an estimate, or speak with someone in our office for more information.
