    Ground Padding under a above ground Intex Pool

    I will be installing my new Intex 16' x 48" pool soon and was thinking of different ground pads. I will be using the original ground sheet that comes with the pool, plus a Rino Ground pad. I was also thinking of using the "Connect-A-Mat" that are used for home day cares for infants to crawl on, they are also used for exercising on as well. Anyone ever use these to cushion the pool floor of their Intex Pool?

    I used these and they work great, they are probably way cheaper and will last just as long... The foam is great and has no indentions at all and as long as you use good tape (I used gorilla extra strength tape) it should not separate.

    Look through my installation below (page 2 mostly) to see how I and many others installed the foam

    Shop GORILLA 2.88-in x 90-ft Black Duct Tape at
