Leveling my lawn

Not sure where to post this question, but here it goes. I need to level a part of the lawn where we want to put an above ground pool. My husband doesn't want to use sand to level it, can we use just dirt or soil. Would that sink to fast into the ground using dirt?

If it were me, I'd regrade the soil in and around the pool area to suit my needs, so to answer your question, yes, you can use dirt to level the area. You will still want to use sand directly under the liner for getting that "perfect" level as well as to prevent any sharp things from getting to the liner.
