If you are looking for information on taking the DIY Pool route when considering your options then you will find all the information you need right here. I would like to point out that when DIY is mentioned in relation to a swimming pool it does not mean that you are expected to craft the pool yourself. a DIY Pool project is to take the pool construction company out of the equation and to directly engage the contractors who actually build the pool to do it under your supervision.
Inground DIY Pool
In this sense, Inground DIY pools are the way to go, if you were potentially looking at an above ground installation then you might actually be able to do it yourself since these do not require digging of any sort and can actually be setup over a couple of weekends. My inital option was to get an above ground pool but going the DIY route meant that i might as well get an inground and enjoy the benefits of a proper pool.
Why go the DIY Pool route?
Simple. To save money. I’ve been collecting for sometime now to get a pool but going to an advertised pool construction company means you are going to be paying a premium for something could cost a lot less if you went straight to the people who actually did it. Look around in your yellow pages or ask around at your local hardware store and you are bound to find someone who has gone the DIY pool route before.
While i did learn a lot of things along the way, i took most of my guidance from this book that i read that you could probably find useful as well. I am almost done with my pool and in the course of the next few weeks i will update the site on the things that i have learned and what i find important.
