If you are a parent or a grandparent and you want to get into swimming pool building, this article is for you.
But it’s also a guide to creating your own.
The following steps should be familiar to anyone who’s ever tried to build a pool.
Start with a basic plan, and then work your way up to a bigger and better one.
For each step, you’ll find an illustration, step-by-step instructions, and photos to help you build the pool you want.
The guide is based on years of research by my team and my friends, but it’s not meant to be a comprehensive guide.
Instead, it’s a quick way to get started with the basics of building a swimming pool.
