I just ordered my Sharkline 15x30x52" pool. Looking forward to warmer weather (NJ) so I can start my build and get ready for summer.
I've been looking at the different products available for the wall and floor.
First the wall: A lot of sites advertise 1/8" wall foam to help pad the wall and provide insulation. Any opinions on these kinds of products? Do they really help keep the pool warmer and prevent liner punctures? Is it worth the $ or just another way to help separate me from my wallet? Also, all the products I've found are 48" wide, but my pool is 52" high. Has anybody found a wall foam 52" high?
Floor: Looking for a foam product to help insulate from the ground and also to provide a footprint free base. Found 1/2" Dow Styrofoam at my local Lowes. It seems like a tough product that could handle the compression of the water. It's even rated for below ground use. Any opinions on this or another recommended product?
