Question about using wall foam for the pool floor...

I have built my Aquasport52 and it is almost ready for the liner. As you can see by the pictures, I still have a few wrinkles to work out in the Armor Sheild Pool pad. But this brings me to my question...

Since I have the Armor Sheild down for the pool floor protection, I am thinking of laying another layer of the pool wall foam on top of that for two reasons:
1. To help eliminate all wrinkles in the liner which may come from the pool pad.
2. To add another 1/4" of cushion.

So my question is...has anyone done this before? Would you recommend it or not?

Thanks,
Matt
p.s. Hoping to squeeze out 2 more good sunny days here in Louisville before winter sets in...

I do not think the wall foam will do anything to stop any wrinkles.. now if you use this 1/4 inch foam from lowes it will help much more... I used the 3/4 inch and has been awesome under my pool for 6 years now, it was a little more from the 1/4 inch...

Thank you for this suggestion...I will certainly look into it.....
