    From Intex to inground pool

    Hello!
    After swimming one year in an Intex frame pool 488 x 122, we decided to make a new one in ground.
    The problem was, we had made a concrete base plate, that we had to remove first.
    It was soooo much work, i couldnĀ“t believe that the most work is done now.

    Now the pool is in winter sleep, and my back is ready for the doc
    i have taken out about 20mĀ³ ground and about 5mĀ³ concrete from the old base plate.
    The Pool is 5m diameter , and 1,5m deep.
    I have filled it up around with concrete, too.

    Jes, it was much work for a one-man-show
    Today i finished the rest, only the grass must wait till spring.
    Next autumn i will make a wood terrace around the pool, i think.
    For the next summer it must be ok like it is now.
