I am going to do paver decking... the company we are looking at for the pool says they normally pour a concrete base and then set the pavers on top. I am not a fan of that. I had pavers set on my front porch on a conreete base and there is no drainage. When it rains the water accumulates. They are EP Henry Cobble so the corners are tapered and all fill up with water.
Anyone who has pavers around your pool... how were they set? On concrete? On regular compacted base and sand layer like normal paver installs? How long after backfill did they do deck? Any settling?
How did they handle the bonding for code?
And I like being able to take them up if I ever need to get to a skimmer or pipe.
