Foam Pool Base
by Kimm Dilling
I am going to be installing a 30' AG pool. I see that someone used foam sheeting instead of sand. What kind of sheeting is this?
I have ordered the pool coving with the pool and would like to use a foam bottom. I also have the gorilla pad on its way.
Hi Kimm. 4 x 8 sheets of either 1" or 1 1/2" Styrofoam make a very nice cushion for the liner. Start by laying out as many of the full sheets as possible and then tape them all together. Now you can start cutting and fitting in the small pieces and curved sections. If you are going to use the Gorilla pad it should go on next. Get the pad to lay as flat as possible and then cut it to fit just inside of the pool wall. The pad tends to move easily so I would tape that in place. The last pieces to go in would be the preformed pool cove. Make sure all of the seams are taped.
You are now ready for a liner. Best of luck.
