    Question Pad under stairs

    Hello ~
    It's a beautiful hot sunny day here in northern Illinois. We have a new above ground pool and have purchased wedding cake stairs for inside the pool. I have read that a pad under the stairs will protect the liner.

    What kind of pad should I get? Where do I get it?

    Thanks for the support! wedding cake stairs.jpg

    I have a pad under my stairs. Its just a ribbed peice of heavy gauge vinyl. They are like $20 and you can get them almost anywhere on line.

    I'll tell you one thing the pad does do, it shows you just how much your liner has faded at the end of the season when you take the pad out.
