Ok, the subject on this thread might not be completely accurate. But... I was kicking around the idea of building my own pool in our next house. But, I would like it to be more natural in look rather that a basic shape, a more tropical look with waterfalls, etc. (I have built ponds for a living in the past so have a lot of experience in that way).
My first question is the liner. With ponds we use EPDM liners but I don't think this would be appropriate for a pool as most EPDM liners are black (not very inviting for a pool color) and I don't know how EPDM would hold up to chlorine levels and other chemicals.
Is it possible to buy vinyl pool liner material by the foot (seaming it if necessary) just as you would a pond liner? If so, are folds (like what would be in a pond liner) ok considering bacterial growth, etc.
I just seems to me that a really cool looking pool could be built based on pond design.
I'd like to get feedback from those that have any knowledge in this.
