Back in the day, we used pavers with our 15 x 42 round Intex Ultra Frame, but we have an Intex Prism oval 16.5 x 9 x 48 and I'm reading here about issues re: pavers and the oval pools, but for the life of me, I can't picture what we need in my head. After the 15 x 42 round Intex Ultra Frame, I installed our 18 x 52 AG (with help, of course), but we left that pool (oh, how I cried!) when we moved across the country a few years back, so I know a little, but most definitely not enough. I've got two autistic pool fiends who've been out of school since March, so with all that stress and now, with their summer services and camps cancelled, I'm super anxious about getting this set up right, as it will definitely get more use than the intex paddlers we've had since our move. Frame pools make me nervous anyway, as they seem more finicky, with more variables, so I need to be able to show my husband and my oldest *exactly* what we need--I've always been the shopper and the builder, but my hands are pretty shot these days. Leveling will be daunting as heck, but I hope that renting a level will mitigate some of that. I plan to use foam board under the pool, as it worked well for the 18 foot AGP. Anyway, if anybody would be kind enough to post pics of the wood they used with their ovals, along with the specifics of the kind of wood, etc., I'd really appreciate it. Like I said, I'm having a tough time visualizing what we need. Thanks!
