Hi all- We are planning an ABG to be decked up and left semi-permanently in place, so I am looking for the pool pad with the best durability. The pool we are getting has a 10 year warranty, so I'd like a pad that will last at least that long as well. So far, I've been able to determine:
1. Happy Bottom has NO warranty;
2. Perfect Pool Bottom (which I hadn't even heard of as long-time lurker here) has a 10 yr warranty; and
3. Gorilla Pad - ???- can't find any info.
I know #1 and# 3 serve somewhat different purposes (padding vs. puncture protection:) do people use both??
Also, how long do they last in anyone's experience, even if not warrantied?
#2 looks like it serves both purposes but is quite a bit more expensive, and isn't available in the size we want: we'd have to cut it way down.
Thanks - you guys (and gals) are great. I followed all your advice for last year's cheapo starter intex but am ready to move up to a more semi-permanent pool this year - whew, things get complicated quickly !! -MNmom
