    Should I Have Something Under The Ladder

    Should I have something under the ladder in the pool to protect the liner? Is a bath mat going to want to float up?

    If you get a bathmat with the suction cups on the back, it won't float up. Others have used piece of old liner or liner patches to provide protection.

    My old liner was in the pool for 7 years without anything under the ladder and I never had any ladder wear issues. Chemical damage... yes, ladder
