Is it possible to convert the whole ground floor of a building to a swimming pool?
The answer is unquestionably, "NO". Water is very heavy. If you put one foot of water in a 10x15 living room, it would weight over 8,000 pounds. The floor was never designed to support this kind of weight. Even if the floor could, the walls could never support the pressure. Tom
I want to but a swimming pool for my backyard. What should I expect to pay for a quality swimming pool?
It can affect the strength, durability, or the sturdiness of the building. If the ground beneath it is sand, It is more than likely to fall during an earthquake or something. Sand is a horrible foundation for a building. Loose soil can also affect the building in the same way, making it slide or sink into the ground.
