    here's my crasy idea for a pool

    Here's a picture of an above ground which I installed... in-ground !
    This is a 12' pool, I bought for $115.00 !! The total cost of this project is about $1500.00. most part of the expenses, comes from concrete floor, end fencing, which I aldo done by myself. See my site for more pics.
    Feel free to comment, or give ideas etc...

    thanks,

    Looks great! Looks a little small for the effort it looks like it was... just my opinion though. May just be the right size for you and your family.

    I wish we'd have had the option to put ours inground a bit too, but hadn't done enough research when we found our used pool to figure out if it would work where we wanted to put it.

    Re: here's my crasy idea for a pool

    I've done the same thing with my pool. I have been contemplating the deck for over 2 years. Is that cement around yours? If so, without sounding absolutley dumb, how did you do it? Is it right up to the pool sides or is there a bit of a gap?
    thanks!

    Looks like pavers to me. I would of used pavers too as they are easy to take out and do allow room for expansion with the ground. Great idea Frenchie.

    Re: here's my crasy idea for a pool

    Hi everyone, sorry for being away from the site for a while. No it's not concrete. I didn't want to have concrete, in case or my project would collaps, or not lasting long, the job would have been more complicate, to remove, so pavers is a lot simple, and I can re-use them for other project, or sell them !

    I have about 10" space between pool walls and pavers.which I filled the top 2-3 inches with washed stones, again a cheap material.

    bye now !

    My crazy idea being a Canes fan is to basically connect the L shape pool I already have with an L shape in the opposite direction making a U

    Pavers are great because if you decide to change any of the landscaping you can easily w/o having a to bust up the concrete... Plus, like you mentioned, if you have any problems w/the pool they are easy to manuever. They look nice too!
