    Maybe this will help. I never got around to finishing it, but it at least gets most of the way to setup.

    I used 2" thick, 12" x 12" concrete blocks, others use 4" thick. I dug my ground to level, recessed the blocks flush to ground level, and made sure they were all level with each other. I then placed a gorilla pad down, and then 1" thick foam sheets on top. Then the pool went on top of that. The foam I used is the kind the use under concrete for insulation.
