GORILLA FLOOR PADDING
SUPER STRONG FLOOR PAD PROTECTS LINERS FROM ROCKS & ROOTS
New Gorilla Pad makes old foam floor padding obsolete. Unlike foam, which can be easily cut by roots or rocks under your liner, Gorilla Padding is impervious to almost any sharp object. Gorilla Padding is a geotextile that was developed to protect trash dump liners where any cut would be a catastrophe. Gorilla Padding 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. No more cutting and taping as with foam. Virtually eliminate vinyl liner bottom leaks with Gorilla Pad.
Note: Gorilla Padding will not stop grass, we suggest Perfect Pool Bottom to stop grass

can I put foam on top of this ?
Hello Scot, You can if you so desire to put more padding down, but would recommend doing the math of how much sand you will be laying down first than laying down foam, I would recommend doing a double layer gorilla floor padding NL122.
Does this still require a liner between the pad and the bottom of the pool? Or is the Gorilla Pad all that is required? THX
Hello Gary, the Gorilla Floor Padding makes old foam floor padding obsolete. Typically you would place traditional foam padding between the liner and the ground. This is an alternative to traditional foam padding.
Does the Gorilla pad go on top of the pool cove?
The Gorilla pad would be put down first and the pool cove would go on top of the Gorilla pad.
How thick is the Gorilla pad?
The Gorilla pad is about an 1/8" thick. It is similar to a piece of felt material.
I am wondering if you need to put sand under the Gorilla floor padding? Or can this be just set on the level ground?
You can set up the Gorilla floor pad either way. Some of our customers will put a layer of sand down and then the Gorilla floor pad. However the manufacturer states that you do not have to put sand down first.

Pros: Great protection
I bought my house with the pool in place and I was constantly patching holes on the floor from small rocks poking through. I installed a new liner, put down sand and installed the gorilla pad. I've had no problems and don't expect any. I would recommend putting one down for anyone who does not want to worry about their new liner.

This is a fantastic item. Makes putting in the liner so much easier and the pool bottom feels great. If you are a do it yourselfer and you are putting up an above ground pool just bite the bullet and order one with your pool.

I replaced my pool padding with this product and I felt the difference after installation. It is easy to install as illustrated. It is still on the same condition for the second year. It protected the pool liner bottom and made it smooth even under the high water pressure. I recommend it for everyone.
