For the best result, it is helpful to transition with one or more materials with in-between stiffness, and/or attach the valve to a wide plate and use a rubber gasket to prevent leaks/failure. I believe that a good place to start would be to look for water heater ...

I have been setting up pools in the same area in my yard for about 6 years now. I have found that play sand is the best under lament for the liner. Now I went from a 18 foot to a 22 foot Coleman and need to expand the circumference extremely. I will let you folks know how it turns out.
