    Re: Wall foam

    I have seen MANY pools go up without it. It's not an absolute necessity, but not always recommended by all installers.. I will just state my findings, but not going to say it's the rule or not.> Sorry.. I can just say waht we did.

    Re: Wall foam

    We looked for something similar to the wall foam sold for pools, any alternative that work work in the same way. We just could not find it. Like Insomnix said, you don't need it but I'm here to tell you that we have had without, and with our last liner replacement we added it - MUCH nicer and even though it may be incrimental, I do believe it adds a bit of insulation property. I'm glad we added it this time around.

    Some of the foam padding that goes under floating laminate flooring is the same as wall foam. You should be able to find it at Lowes or Home Depot. The biggest issue you will have is the width. I think most of it is only 36"s or so. I hope this helps.

    I used a polystyrene. It made a nice addition to the feel of the wall and bottom. It was my first pool install and my friends and family are quite impressed with the feel and comfort , I recessed the pool so my walls feel so much more solid vs spongy.
