For the last two years my husband and I put up a inflatable ring intex pool. Our yard is sloping and we had tons of problems even after leveling the yard with soil washing away when it rained thus causing the pool to lean. So this winter he built a retaining wall to contain the soil and releveled my "pool circle." This year we are starting fresh with a Metal Frame Intex pool, 15x48. The ground has been leveled and our kit comes with a ground cloth.
My question is in addition to the ground cloth should I also use the foam insulation boards?
I have read several places that people use them for other types of AGPs but haven't found anyone who has used the foam boards with this particular style of pool. I know I would need to duct tape them together and cut them to fit. Also do the boards need to under the frame poles? I was intending to place wood squares beneath the pole feet for stability, but would I need to do that with the foam board?
Thanks so much for any help!
