My pool installer is coming tomorrow and I really need help with making the decision. I purchased an above ground 24â round pool and I also purchase the accessory package. The accessory package came with the happy bottom pad. My pool installer said not to install it. He stated that they come apart and leave creases in the liner that is hard to clean. I have search high and low to find others that have used this pad (or one similar) and no one really post any negatives on it. I also just spoke with a man that has had three above ground pools and he said the next one he puts up he is definitely putting in the pad. I was told it helps to maintain the heat and keeps things from coming up thru the sand. (I live in Northern Indiana so maintaining heat may be an issue) I am just wondering if the pool installer is just trying to be lazy and still charge me an arm and a leg for installation or if it really is not a good idea to use. Please can anyone help me out here?? I want to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly!
Thanks so much!!!
Also ~ For those of you who put one in... did you buy the expensive tape or use duct tape?
