    I don't see why not. They'd probably be even nicer than the foam insulation.

    Sounds expensive but would be nice. Last time I had to move one of those things it was a pita, heavy and floppy, lol

    They will be fine. Expensive, but If you have them already, go for it! One thing for sure, they will last forever, as they will not give out or rot. Just tape them really good together with gorilla tape of something similar.

    On sale right now for 29. Thought that's about what the foam board is. Unless I'm looking at the wrong thing. We have soft sandy soil. So thought the mats would help hold the pool as well as the feet. And would last for a long time.
