Sep 19, · We are putting up a 15 x 30 steel wall pool. We've already purchased a foam cove. Our soil is quite sandy so we're thinking we can get away with not bringing in sand if we use a 1/2" or so of sifted soil to cover the inside framework and then put down a layer of rigid polystyrene foam insulation to make a smooth bottom. Gorilla Pads are pre-cut floor pads designed to protect and cushion the bottom of above ground pools. Unlike old pool foam padding, which can be easily be cut or pierced by grass, roots, or rocks under your above ground pool liner, Gorilla Bottom pool floor padding is impervious to almost any sharp object/5(7).
Jun 24, · I was considering using Foam as opposed to a sand bottom in the pool I am going to install. When I inquired at the lumber yard they said the dense Blue foam is only sold in 2' widths. Is this correct? It would require a lot of taping. What tape is best duct tape or the red insulation tape? Also the soil here is very sandy. Would tamping the sand down and placing the foam on be sufficient. Gladon Company PP Happy Bottom Pool Pad 1/2" Extra Thick, ' Be the first to review this product. $ Free Shipping. Out of stock.

Jun 15, · We're getting closer to putting our 15 x 30 AG pool up and I need to decide whether to use 2" of sand on the bottom (I purchased coving) and worry about smoothing that out or just getting 1 1/2" styrofoam and laying that out. Does anyone have an opinion/experience on which is best? I'm sure the styrofoam would be easiest, but I don't want to do it if it compromises anything.
