If your pool has metal sides, don't use limestone rocks. We bought our house many years ago, and the same idea was done with white, limestone rocks. The pool had about 2 feet of hideous water in it. We drained the pool, scrubbed the liner and refilled the pool. Overnight all of the water was gone. Little did we know that the limestone had corroded little holes in the metal sides, which had poked tiny pinholes in the liner. Cleaning the liner unclogged the holes, and the water drained out. Our yard was flooded! So, we either had to deal with a very large sand box, or get another pool. As our daughter was 13, and had already fallen in love with the idea of having a pool, we bought a new one. After just buying the house, it was an expense we didn't plan for....☹. Bottom line... be careful of the type of rock you use.
