Building an in-ground swimming pool

In ground swimming pools are quite different to above ground wooden pools. These in-ground pools can be supplied in kit form either using concrete block and liner where you purchase the building materials i.e. Concrete for the foundations, concrete blocks, sand and cement for building the walls, rendering, and floor separately or by using wall panels where you need less building materials to build with.

These in-ground swimming pools are more complex to construct than the above ground pools. If you have some knowledge of building then you should be able to build the pool yourself, but there are many factors and pitfalls to be aware of as building a swimming pool is not the same as building a house or an extension. So it may be best to seek advice before and during construction from a reputable swimming pool installer. For more information please fill in the short form below

A few pointers when planning to build a swimming pool.

  1. Make a list of what you want then place the ideas in order of preference. For example: What size pool do you want? If you want a large pool add at about a metre of paving or decking of your choice around the pool.
  2. Be flexible and practicable in your choice of designs and locations,
  3. Is the pool to be an indoor or outdoor pool?
  4. What type of decking and surround do you want around the swimming pool?
  5. Set aside an area for the pool plant room, pool toys and games.

Building your own swimming pool can be a bit daunting but if you do get stuck in a rut give us a call on 01600861851 or email us. We cover all areas including Wales Monmouth Cardiff Chepstow Swansea across the border to England Gloucester Bristol Taunton Bath Oxford Hampshire Guildford London Kent Southampton Essex and Kent

Building a pool yourself is an economical way to have a swimming pool.

However you need to be aware of the pitfalls at the beginning, during and at the end of your build.

If you have some general knowledge of construction then building a pool yourself can be relatively easy but this depends on how much experience you have

You could buy and build a wooden above ground type. These come in kit form  and you will need to build a concrete base for the structure to rest on.

If you do not want an out of ground pool then another way is to build it partly in the ground and put timber decking around to make it look like an in-ground pool.
