    Intex pool foam instalation ?s

    Hi again all,
    I will be taking down my Intex pool and re-leveling and I figured I would throw some foam under it.

    What thickness should I use and should I put blocks under the legs? Ive seen a post or 2 talking about not using blocks and not having any problems with the legs being on the foam.

    I can't answer you questions with direct experience. Take a look at this link:http://www.troublefreepool.com/foam-...me-t42304.html

    From the discussion in that link, and if I was planning on taking the pool down each winter, I think I would try extruded polystyrene all the way under legs and all taped with gorilla tape.
