    new intex pool question

    I purchased a 14x42 ultra frame pool. I know I should use pavers underneath the legs for support but I cant dig them down into the ground I need to have them laying on top of the ground..I don't want to put stress on the liner seems with the height difference so I was thinking about using the recycled rubber tiles from home depot instead of the pavers. Just looking for opinions from people who have set up these pools if they will work.

    I used 6"x6" ceramic tiles that are 3/8th of an inch thick. They are not buried, and in a couple of places I have two stacked together to help level the top rail. Don't over-think what should go under the "feet" of the legs. Leveling is much more important.
