Hi- I know a person can purchase a gorilla pad, foam board, use sand for the floor base of a pool, but what else can be used? We will be installing a 27 foot (52inch deep) Round pool and are wanting to look at all the options. We did sand with our intex pool and had a difficult time avoiding the foot prints. The gorilla pad seems expensive and I am not sure about the foam board I have heard about... I have no idea. I am just wondering if anyone can share other alternatives and what they did.
We are having top soil brought in to level the ground because we have some sloping. The ground cover (or pool floor base whatever it is called) is to protect the liner and prevent nutgrass and weeds, right? I do plan to purchase the pool cove to avoid having to do the cove with sand. (sigh) I am trying to stay within reason regarding price and just wondering if there are other alternatives I haven't read about.
Any thoughts? Oh! And we do live in Northern Michigan and we do get a lot of snow. I am not sure if that makes a difference.
Thanks in advance for any help/insight that is given
