Feel like I've read every thread possible but looking for a simple answer I can't seem to find anywhere!! I currently have this paver patio laid in my backyard and I wanted to know if I can place the hot tub on top of the pavers that are already laid. As you can see, the pavers are slightly uneven (its very slight, less than an inch with some in the middle being a little higher than where the outsides would like) and I know hot tubs are supposed to be level. My question is what is the best way to level the hot tub on this surface? Is there a need to buy Handi-Spa pads and will placing a Spa Pad over this area make the hot tub sink in more level? https://www.spadepot.com/Handi-Spa-Pads-Box-of-3-P847?zmam=55673001&zmas=1&zmac=1&zmap=AC1058&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIx-e07aSV5wIVnv_jBx0o5AiREAQYBSABEgJllvD_BwE are what I am referring to Can I just buy heavy duty wedges and slide them around the hot tub to make up for the extra space? https://www.amazon.com/Ez-Shim-Heavy-Duty-Shims-count/dp/B002Y0LIQE Is another option to lay a level of gravel down to try to make up for some of the unevenness on top of the rocks? Or can someone just tell me if this uneven paver really isnt that terrible and I really shouldn't worry about it in the long run? Help is GREATLY APPRECIATED!! hot tub is here next week so I do not wan to dig up the pavers. I can always get a pad and put it on the grass but I've read pavers are a good choice. Thank you!!
Hi, I have an inground 22x42 vinyl pool with aluminum coping. Replacing liner and was considering bullnose coping. Had pavers with 1' border installed about 10 years ago when we moved in. Mason is saying that in order to do bullnose, we should peel back 3ft in order to "even out". He wants to charge $2150 to do the bullnose and $3150 to do the peel back part. Already spending a lot to do the liner and not sure about the need for going back so far. Any advice? thanks!
Hello this is my first post...just had the concrete patio tore out around our vinyl lined inground pool with aluminum bullnosed coping. Had paver patio installed. Contractors laid approx. 10" concrete collar around the pool perimeter and laid pavers on bed of sand flush to the coping. Pavers are not mortared in, just polymeric sand in between joints. They attempted to squeeze thinned mortar in between the spaces between the pavers into the bullnosed coping and were not having much success. I have been reading conflicting opinions on whether there needs to be an expansion joint between coping and paver patio where the pavers around the edge are on top of concrete collar. Is this necessary? I didn't know if the water that may get in between the two would erode the sand under the pavers which I don't think was very thick on top of the concrete or if water would get in the coping and be susceptible to freeze thaw (live in central IL) or if water would be able to get in between the liner and the pool wall. I am still not certain exactly what purpose the coping serves. We would like to sand and paint the coping but didn't think we could remove with an open pool. We are replacing the liner this year around end of Aug. - beginning of Sept. Could anything be done then? If a joint is needed, could a person run a diamond blade flush to the coping through the pavers and fill with backer and tremco? The contactors that we hired did not have a lot of experience with laying paver patios around existing inground pools and we didn't have much to choose from in the boonies. Thanks and I am not sure how to insert pictures, but I have some. Susie
