installing rods on outside of Gunite pool

zecallrexMarch 20, 2011

I am installing concrete deck as a sub-base around gunite pool- is it okay install & drill 5/8" rods into sides of gunite pool to secure to deck? I have been told by some not to do this, others say it is fine. Opinions? What is common practice?

I am in north east area, just installed the gunite pool last Nov. Deck base fill has be layered- compacted, & 4" gravel compacted. Will be adding natural stone on top of concrete sub-base with an expansion gap between pool and stone.

Definitely do NOT tie the patio slab to the pool shell. The patio needs to be able to move horizontally and vertically.
