We just bought an above ground pool 20x48.
And it not one of those permanent ones it’s the ones you can take down every year. So we are going to build it on concrete in my backyard but we do not know what to put under the pool so it doesn’t wear and tear. I would appreciate anyone who has good and inexpensive ideas, thank you.

We used a big white round tough fabrc feeling thing - I think it was called a rhino liner but it might have been an elephant pad. I think there are different brands. Our pool liner held up great, the frame rusted out. We left our pool up in the winter after the first year.

There's a YouTube poster that showed they bought home insulation board 4'×8' at $22 each for the 1.25 ich thick ones, duct taped them together, and placed them under his pool (covered by plastic and tarp) which made it very comfortable to walk on. He gave a 3 or 4 year update on it too - was an Intex rectangle pool.
