    New pool bottom?

    I currently have a 24' round above ground thats about 8 years old that has a few problems; I have decided instead of fixing it, I am going to buy a new resin 24 above ground pool. The problem I have had with my current pool is the bottom always seems to get divots and foot prints over time which catch dirt. I have been looking at the Gladon Perfect Pool bottom but they are so pricey. I was wondering if anyone has ever put down vinyl flooring / linoleum under the liner instead of one of these expensive kits. It seems to me that it would be about the same but instead of having seams every 5' I would only have one seam down the middle.

    Whats your thoughts?
