Summer 2011 DIY Lap pool project

Summer 2011 DIY Lap pool project

I used to swim a lot before i moved to Richmond and was looking for another way to get in shape, without wasting time going and coming back from a gym when i have my gym in my basement. So, In popped the idea of having my own pool…but my backyard is so small? I figured I’d dig a hole, some cinder blocks, plaster, and attach myself by a harness to the garage wall. Well it turned into a bigger project with a 4hp pump to make it endless with no harness. On top of that, by the time I was done building it, getting in shape by swimming in it wasn’t as pertinent lol! –some people have asked about price… i did it myself to not incur cost 🙂 I salvaged as much as I could…so your costs depend on whether you enjoy the hunt of a deal or if you just go and buy things….

Total cost (roughly)?

zakiyyah staley says:

How much did it cost you

Mar K says:

Didn't notice you put down anything like gravel, as a bed for the concrete. Did you?How thick did you lay the concrete?Just want to understand, you laid the 2×4 on the length of the pool and laid the rebar parallel to them ? How far apart was the rebar? Or did you lay it cross thatch like. Or did you lay it going across the width of the pool ?Sorry I know nothing about this . (but I am still going to do it)

Mar K says:

Great job!
The concrete floor: Did you just mix up a bag or two at a time and pour it? How long did that take to do the entire floor? And advise on the concrete floor application.?
Plastered interior: have any pics of you doing this? The plaster is not listed in you supplies. What kind/brand. Did you have to do anything to make it waterproof?
One of the Best dyi videos yet ! You make it look possible. Thankyou
