How to build a swimming pool

Manuals, tips and plans for building a DIY - swimming-pool (inground pool)

The following pages describe how I plan to build my swimming-pool and hold in the operation. Because the pool building throws up a lot of questions, I try to clarify most questions for those who also want to fulfill their dream of owning a pool or private swimming-pool. And to start, first of all, with the mistake that every building brings with itself.
I plan to describe the building of the swimming-pool so well that it sticks with a lot of pictures, sketches and architect’s plans. Should anyone have questions or wish to see detailed pictures, I will gladly reply to mail at bernd.krammer (at) gmail (dot) com. I hope those who also want to build a pool themselves will get a lot of enjoyment out of this and with, eventually, building your own pool in the lawn.

Key features of the swimming-pool:

The garden inground pool is built with mortar.
Swimming pool (scarf stones) with welded foil.
Rectangle washbasins with inside-lying Roman stair.
Masses: 4.50 x 8.50 x 1.50 ms, 48 ms contents.
The slope is roofed built-in.
