I am considering building a pool and trying to decide on the type based on price, ease of doing yourself, quality, etc. Thought poured concrete would actually be a good choice. My biggest concern was possible leaks between walls and bottom since those would have to be two separate pieces of slab. Mr. "Waste" stated that this should not be a concern but I would like to hear other opinions too (no disrespect to Mr. "Waste")
Also, how thick should be the walls/ bottom? Will I need to plaster the surface? I was hoping to just grind/sand the rough areas and paint with epoxy paint. Would that work???
