I am new here have been reading and reading and lurking for awhile, finally leveled my ground, bought my pool/saltwater system and am going to finally install the thing tomorrow. I have a couple questions about some protection on the bottom floor. I know the recommended stuff to use is extruded foam but am looking to cut some costs if I can, plus this thing is only going up for a couple months since we are halfway through summer. I'll be taking it down and looking for a more permanent install next year.
Anyway the ground is really smooth (the initial area was mostly dirty with some slight dead grass so it was easy to work with) I removed all the roots completely, leveled it and dumped about an inch of sand.
Do you guys think I'd be able to get away with putting some material like this "Floor Underlayment" underneath it's supposedly 0.75 inch?
I also found this Landscape Fabric on clearance at Sears that is supposed to be anti-weeds, mold etc.. what do you guys say? (See pic attachment)
