Have two toddlers so we bought a 12x30 metal frame Intex this year. Was planning to put on the deck, but weight is too much. We plan to take this down in a couple of months since Canadian summers are short. I have found a 12x12 area of the lawn that is level (checked with string level etc.). How critical is it that the ground under the pool be completely level. I really want a temporary solution so was hoping I could just lay down the gorilla pad on the grass (with some bumps and ridges in the grassy area) but knowing full well that all 12 metal posts will be level, would consider putting a paver under each one.
I really don't want to cut a circle, remove the grass, level with filler/sand/rocks/concrete etc. The plan is to see if we like a pool this summer and if we do move up to an on or in ground next year. So I need some temporary solution just for one summer and am okay realizing at a minimum my grass will die, but cannot fathom having to do more than that.
