Armor Shield pool floor padding is a specialty product highly recommended for Florida above ground pool and liner installations. Pool floor pads or Armor Shield in particular may be seldom used by pool owners in other states, but in Ocala Florida the ground is warm, soft and sandy, perfect for burrowing rodents and insects like moles, ground hogs, beetles and ants. These nuisance critters often dig under above ground pools and come up right under them puncturing your brand new vinyl pool liner.
Armor Shield Pool Floor Pad is the best way to stop this from happening to your pool. This product is a made from a super tough material that moles and other animals can’t bite through. And the good news is that it still allows the pool to breathe, it’s the breath-ability that keeps the pool from rusting away. This occurs by allowing the trapped moisture or condensation to escape into the ground, allowing the pool walls to dry out.
Armor Shield comes ready to use out of the box. There is no cutting or taping necessary, just unfold it inside pool and install the liner right on top of it. It’s important to note that plastic sheeting, weed barrier, Styro-foam and other materials cannot stop moles from ruining your liner. Use Armor Shield pool floor pad with nutgrass weed killer for the best in pool liner protection. This is the combo I used on my own pool and highly recommend it.
