Inground pool

Did anybody build there own inground pool? I Got three quotes. To build and a do it your self quote. It’s half the money to build your self. With all the sand gravel cement. Looked on YouTube and it’s not that hard. I watch a 1.5hr. Video on it. It’s just to find the time to install it. Have anyone attempted this. Thanks.

Barn
Can't be that hard. No different than a manure pit only smaller I'd guess unless you're building a big ass pool. Just need a water barrier at the joints and poured concrete from there. Time is the issue setting forms and tearing them all back down.


Don't blame the baker when the butcher bakes the bread.

I don't know anything about pools but it seems to me if you're going to put a liner in it then steel would be the way to go - probably cheaper than concrete and certainly easier for the DIYer. My uncle put an inground pool on the farm in the late 60's. They used the **** out of it over the years even after they had the land rented out and only spent a few summer months on the farm. He put a coil of black PVC on the garage roof for heat.

Slip clutch where are you located? There are people that come to our church that are taking out their metal in ground swimming pool. I bet you could almost get the metal for nothing. Send me a pm if iinterested.

Westeel c-ring, 3000-4500m3 and deep enough to dive into. Galvanized. Can buy cheap now that they lost favour for frac, the liner will cost you $20,000 though.

I am doing one right now for the kids, making it out of a sea can, that is about the cheapest way to get a pool.
Many bury it, but I am leaving it above ground so I can sell it later if I get bored of it. Building it into the deck

If you want it wider, just weld two together
