Swimming pond – construction guide



You can build a swimming pond made of different materials. One of the most important steps is the use of pond liner. It is especially important to follow the sg pool principle. This means that a foil is applied to the vertical concrete wall later. Especially advantageous are the quick cleaning options. It depends on the local conditions, whether there is a danger of burglary or not. Sometimes such a danger can threaten construction in poor soil conditions. In addition, you need a brick wall made of concrete blocks, on which you have to stretch a foil again. For a timber construction you can use well durable larch beams. These are pretty cheap.

Necessary materials and information

You can not build a swimming pond by yourself, without getting rental equipment. For example, you should have a mini digger available to dig out the pool’s hollow. In addition, the depth of the swimming pond should be taken into account. The water should be at least 2m deep. You can make the ground with gravel or concrete paving. These materials quite facilitate the annual cleaning. When the swimming pond is ready, the basin should be filled with well water or rainwater.
