Patio


I finished laying my pavers and tamped it all down with the plate compactor. The pavers were too wet to sweep the sand in the joints. Now it is raining nonstop.
Questions:
1. Will the rain seep in-between and under my pavers and wash out my sand base? Should I cover it?
2. I have polymeric sand for the joints. Should I use regular sand first to sweep in joints, then wait a couple of months to add the expensive polymeric sand?

Thanks,
John
