    Considering having the walls shot with spray foam?

    Thinking of having a pool built and was considering having the walls shot with spray foam? Any thoughts or experiences with spay foam or insulating a steel walled pool?

    Thanks

    Most people consider wall insulation a waste of time. It will help retain heat just a tiny bit, but isn't likely to be worth the cost.

    Total waste of money, and if the compressive strength of the foam is less then what properly compacted soil is it could create issues.

    Truly a piece of cellophane wrap over the top of the pool would do way more then any wall insulation. Not the product
