    Insulation for heat loss 18 x 33 Oval

    About to break ground for a 18 X 33 Oval. Has anybody used any insulation such as Gladdon Wall foam on the walls? We can only find it in the USA and shipment $ is outrageous. Has anybody done any insulation to help with heat loss? I would appreciate anything anybody can offer for advice.

    I would skip the wall really does little to help, since most heat loss is out the top. Also, having it there can increase the chance of something poking a hole in the liner.

    Using a solar cover at night and on cold, cloudy, and windy days is the single best thing to do to keep the pool warm.
