Concrete pool building

The cooler winter months are ideal for building concrete pools. The concrete cures perfectly without risk of drying out. This is a pool we have recently begun. This picture was taken while the rebar was being laid out prior to the plumbing and PVC piping.

The next photo was taken while pouring the concrete. The base has been completed and the walls are bing filled. The workers are using a vibrator to eliminate air pockets from the concrete. The plumbing and electric lighting have all been put in place before the concrete arrives.

After a few days it’s on to the overflow channels and the top slab. The end result will be a 20 x 40 foot overflow pool 6.5 feet deep. The inground structure includes the overflow tank, freshwater tank for all the household and garden needs, pool pump room, garden sprinkler pump room, and living area consisting of a rec room, wet bar/ kitchen and bathroom/ shower facilities.

  1. I am building a concrete pool. After I pour the walls and the floor what do you all recommend for the finial finish. I heard Marble dust and White portland Cement.

  2. Can anyone provide advice on a concrete wall that won’t dry please??? Needs to be dry to have fibreglass put on. Project is now 4 weeks overdue! Contractor keeps blaming the rain and that one wall doesn’t get sun. They’ve tried covering it up, and using a heater. But still not. Help please!?

  3. Concrete pools may be constructed using many differing methods. Concrete pools offer greater design flexibility than fiberglass pools. The ability to individually design a concrete pool means the consumer is not limited to pre-moulded designs.
