A floor foundation is poured and a concrete wall structure is constructed to the desired shape of the pool. Filter attachments are inserted into the walls, which are generally reinforced with steel bars, and "solid poured" (the internal cavites are filled with concrete). Once the shell is completed, the pool is waterproofed one of these ways: 1. with cement/white crushed marble, 2. PVC Vinyl waterproof liner, 3. sprayed with a fibreglass strand-reinforced resin coating, 4. painted, 5. tiled.

Yes. Ron Lacher Pool Engineering in southern California probably has an engineering detail showing how to build it.

You may as well ask how to build a concrete bridge. There are too many details to list.

Of course you can. See http://www.genesis3.com for the best in pool contractors and designers. Luke Pool Service Tucker, GA

The cost of a fiberglass or concrete pool depends on what part of the country you live in. In much the United States, especially southern regions, a fiberglass pool can cost more than a concrete pool. In the Midwest market that we build in a fiberglass pool will typically cost 10% - 20% less than a quality built concrete pool that is built be a reputable company.

The answer will depend on the size of the concrete block!

Yes But it must be built to "free standing" engineering specs. Ron Lacher Pool Engineering in southern California should have an engineering detail to build one.

Basic concrete block it 8x8x16 inches.

A concrete pool is better any where if it is done professionally.

Yes, build a new wall along the length of your pool to the desired width then back fill the part you will not be using

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

Concrete, Mortar, Brick, Block, Re bar for support

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.

If you mean can a concrete pool pop up out of the ground then the answer is Yes it can. All you need is an empty or partially empty concrete pool and a lot of ground water around it once the ground water around the outside of the pool builds up enough the pool will start to float. I have seen it happen several times over the years. To avoid this happening most pools have a hydrostatic valve fitted in the bottom of the pool to allow ground water into the pool when there is a build up of water pressure outside the pool it flows into the pool to stop it from floating.

It weighs 59 lbs. There is a difference between a "real" cinder block and a concrete block. A cinder block uses cinders--ash from the burning of coal--as its aggregate. Concrete blocks are made from concrete. Concrete block is far stronger than is cinder block, and some jurisdictions prohibit the use of cinder block. The only justification for cinder block is that it weighs less than concrete block, which is important if the ground you're building on isn't strong enough to support a heavy structure. This justification has gone away, because now you can buy concrete block made from expanded-shale aggregate that's as light as cinder block and as strong as standard-weight concrete masonry.

A concrete block is made from concrete, a brick block is made from brick. They are two different building materials. Both have their respective advantages and disadvantages.

A vinyl liner, its the way they have been done for 40+ years good swimming getapool.com

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

User Avatar

Yes you can but you would be replacing the liner every 3-4 years when you can build a gunite pool using the old pool as a base and get another 30-40 years of enjoyment out of it.

A concrete block is normally 8 inches high so that an 18 concrete block wall is 12 feet high.

Above ground: assemble the frame, add the waterproof liner, and fill. Below ground: dig a hole big enough to fit the pool, build a drain line, apply a liner of concrete or similar material, waterproof this, and fill.

How are you planning on making the pool water tight? If you want to use a Vinyl Liner, you should consult the dealer you are planning on ordering the liner from. A lot of Vinyl Liner manufactures will not make a liner for that pool.

what is the weight of concrete block work per cubic meter.
