Do I need to use a pool pad like the Gorilla Pad with an above ground pool liner?

A pool liner pad is a cheap way to protect your aboveground pool liner.

The Gorilla Pad is used to help protect and prevent sharp objects and grasses from coming up into your aboveground swimming pool liner. Help prevent vinyl liner bottom leaks with Gorilla Pad.

Gorilla Padding is a geotextile material that is super tough, but also adds a layer of cushioning that will eliminate footprints from forming. Gorilla Pad is cut to size and seamed for your pool. Simply layout the pool pad under the above ground swimming pool liner and over the sand base. You can cut the floor padding on site or pull it up the pool cove.

Should you use the Happy Bottom or Gorilla Pad for Above Ground Swimming Pool Liner Padding

September 4, 2008

At Mega Pool and Spa, we sell everything you need when you replace your swimming pool liner.  Before installing the liner, you may want to consider putting a padding material down first to protect the liner from punctures or give you a softer footing.  These products are placed down first, before putting the liner in.

The Gladon Happy Bottom and Gorilla Pad have different uses.

The Gorilla Pad is a thin felt type of material.  The material is very strong and tightly woven.  This product is not really a “padding” , but provides an excellent layer of protection for the bottom of your vinyl liner.  This product is good for stopping grasses and sharp objects from coming up and cutting or puncturing your swimming pool liner.  You simply lay the Gorilla Pad out on the ground and trim excess, bury in sand, or pull up your pool cove.

The Happy Bottom Pool Pad is made from a foam material.  If your above ground swimming pool is ontop of concrete, this is a great product to put under the liner.  If you want to add some cushion under your swiming pool liner, this is the product to buy. Made from special high density polyethylene foam and about 1/4″ thick, the Happy Bottom Pool Padding acts as a vapor barrier to keep potentially harmful water away from metal components. In addition, liner failure due to puncture is minimized and heat retention is improved. A smooth, easy to clean bottom and reduced indentations are just a few of the benefits of using Happy Bottom Pool Pad.  The Happy Bottom Padding is taped together and sold in pool size.  Detailed instructions and how to install the Happy Bottom Pool Pad can be found here.

What is Wall Foam for Above ground swimming pools and how do you put it on?

May 20, 2008

Gladon Pool Products makes a lot of quality products for your above ground swimming pool vinyl liner replacement job.

When you replace your pool liner, you should consider floor padding such as Happy Bottom Pool Pad to make the pool floor nice and comfortable to add a layer of cushion and protect the bottom of the pool.  Swimming Pool Cove sticks are placed at the bottom of the pool wall to protect the pool frame from the weight of the water.  But, don’t forget about the walls…..

Gladon also makes a product called “Waveless Wall Foam”.

The Above Ground Swimming Pool Wall Foam that we sell makes your swimming pool walls nice and smooth.   Another benefit of using wall foam is that it creates a little bit of insulation to keep heat from escaping your pool water temperature.

The wall foam is 1/8″ thick, 48″ tall, and comes in several sizes.  At http://www.megapoolandspa.com, we have great prices on 65 , 75, 85, and 100 foot lengths.

Our Wall Foam is flat, high quality, and easy to apply.   With the Gladon Foam Bond Adhesive Spray, you can bond the wall foam to swimming pool walls and almost any surface; including concrete and wood.  The foam bond comes in a aerosol can with a  high volume spray nozzle.  The blue foam lets you see where you’ve sprayed it and is easy to clean.
