I think you can as long as the yard is level, the concrete is in good condition and thick enough, and you use sand in the bottom of the pool. Consult your local pool shop for advice.

A concrete pool is better just about any where unless there is a lot of ground movement.

Football, swimming (install a small plastic swimming pool), etc.

You will need to level the area under the pool, though. Most suggest using sand to do this.

Generally, a liner pool is cheaper to install and operate, especially in areas that may freeze in the winter. Hatawa

Yes, as long as the pool itself is on level ground. If not then see if the pool company that is going to build your pool give you some pointers.

Yes, there is no problem with using salt in a concrete pool.

A concrete pool keeps looking better for longer and will outlast a fibreglass pool. Fibreglass pool maufacturers offer guarantees of between 10-20 years. This gives some idea of the longevitiy of fibreglass pools. Fibreglass pools have the following advantages: 1. Easier to install than concrete pools 2. More inert to chemicals and thus require less maintenance and cost than concrete pools 3. Easier to clean than tiles pools

There does not appear to be anything that can be put in your pool to redeye your concrete in the pool dark blue. This can only be achieved by draining the pool and painting the concrete a dark blue color.

Don't do it. Too many possibilities for leaks. Get Fiberglass or vinyl pool, learn to install that instead.

Yes,but only if your pool is resin[that is constructed from 100% polymer or plastic]. It is not advisable to use salt in a "steel pool". Salt in a steel pool is a lousy salesman answer. All Chlorine is made from Salt and the amount needed in your pool is insignificant to what kind of pool you have. Any pool can be salt

Both are fine. Due to the short season a vinyl liner pool will hold up for many years. The problem with a viyl liner pool is you have to stick to certain set sizes and designs. Small leaks can be patched, or eventually replaced with a new liner. A concrete or gunite pool will last for 25 - 30+ years. They can be constructed in custom designs.

Fiberglass swimming pools are easier to maintain, repair, and are less costly to install.

That last answer was not very helpful. Installing an aboveground pool can cost $1,500-$5,000; for in-ground $7,000-$16,000 for a vinyl-lined model, $15,000-$25,000 for a fiberglass shell and $17,000-$45,000 for concrete or gunite. However, custom designs can run prices much higher. source: costhelper.com

1. Steel walls will allow for expansion and contraction in temperature changes. 2. Concrete walls are more likely to have rough edges that may, in time, wear holes or cause tears in the liner. Umm...concrete wall pools don't usually have liners. You either plaster the pool then paint over the plaster, or tile the inside. A steel wall pool (although you should get a polymer wall pool instead--steel will rust in a below-ground application even though it's galvanized; polymer can't rust) is less expensive than a concrete pool Steel-wall and polymer-wall pools are less expensive to install. A concrete pool is made from Gunite--a sprayed-on concrete. Liner pools come as panels on pallets, and you bolt the panels together.

The above ground pool option has many advantages, They are safer, cheaper and easier to build. But the In-ground pool can be handicap accessible, It is also durable and comes with endless design possibilities.

If you are referring to underwater lighting you must install the pool first but before you install the water.

It will be less expensive for you in the long run to request permission to install the pool. Keep permissions granted with your ownership documents, so that there is no future question about the legality of the pool. Should you choose to install it without permission, be aware that one day, the board will notify you -- or your subesquent owner -- that your pool is illegal, require you to remove it, and fine you perhaps daily for every day you refuse to remove the unapproved pool.

Never heard of a ceramic pool.
