Hello - we are new pool owners. 27’ round above ground. Well, we are about to install it. I have read thru a lot of posts on here. We had a crusher dust pad laid yesterday. We are going with foam bottom. What thickness and what type of seam tape is best to use? Any tips for cutting the foam and tips for ensuring seams don’t separate? Thanks

Welcome to TFP :)

I used the 3/4 inch stuff from lowes and they have the 3 inch gorilla tape that will work perfect.. Mine has been under my pool for 5 years and no separation at all... :)

It looks different than what we got 5 years ago but should be the same.. A sharp razor blade is all you should need to cut it...
