nobody's gonna read it, and if anyone does read it, it's not going to be the 
person that drains the pool when the ground is saturated and the water table 
is 6-inches below the ground surface.

Design for the conditions, plus some extra, and have some peace of mind that 
you don't have to explain to anyone why a pool popped up out of the ground 
when you knew it would if it was drained.
