Pool on Pavers

We are installing landscape pavers and want to put an above ground pool on them Do you see any problems with doing this We are considering using a gorilla pad and pool cove Will this work and will the pavers be damage when we no longer wish to have the pool?

Hi Doreen Setting the pool on pavers should not hurt them. I would go with something heavier than the Gorilla pad. It flattens out so thin once the water is sitting on it you will see all the joints between the blocks. You might consider using 1" 4x8 sheets of foam. The pool cove is an excellent idea.

Did you install the Pool on the pavers?

I was wondering if We could do that at our house. We have a small back yard and it is all pavers. Would love to have a round pool there. Was wondering if you installed it and how it worked out.
