    Can you build a deck around an impermanent pool??

    I will be purchasing the Intex 24' by 52" Metal Frame pool within the next few weeks.

    My plan is to take this pool down in the offseason to prevent rusting. This is a bug purchase for us so I want it to last as long as possible.

    I would like to build a small deck on this pool. Probably 10' by 12', but with a curved side to match the pool contour (if that makes sense... I can see it but I can't describe it.)

    Will this be possible considering I will be putting the pool up in the spring and taking it down in the fall? I know the Intex has a ground liner, like a tarp. Would a deck interfere with the proper placement of this?

    Thank you in advance!

    Welcome to TFP!

    The deck will make things a little more difficult both setting up and taking down, but it won't prevent you from doing everything you need to do.

    Sure you can!

    Just design the decking so that you can remove a couple of boards when it's time to take it down or put it back up.
