Greetings everyone! I am looking for some advice on doing a DIY pool at my house. I have a great idea of what I want but I am looking to see if anybody has any input on doing a DIY pool in an area with heavy clay soil in Buffalo NY with the weather that we experience up here. I own a site work construction company and am very familiar with construction but I have never built an in ground pool before! Any advice or links to offer great guidance would be greatly appreciated! I am looking to purchase my pool kit this fall from Pool Warehouse or Royal Pools and do our installation spring of 2021!

You can build on anything they have them all over red clay country and in between. My personal pool is on horrible ground took twice the effort to build cut into a hill no less. Its just extra labor and better material, and alot more stone.
