Swimming in the swimming pool

Steps 1. Planning  

The first thing you have to do when building your own pool enclosure is to ensure that you get the precise measurement of your pool.

Just because the pool is circular or triangular in shape, doesn’t mean you have to build an enclosure in this shape.

A swimming pool of any shape will look great in a square or a rectangular shaped enclosure.

You can then choose a design that matches your outside landscaping decor.

Which you will later send to the manufacturing company who will tailor make the swimming pool enclosure kit according to that design and your measurements.

Place the pole in the holes in an upright position. Pour a mixture of concrete and water to fill up hole and make sure the pole is tightly placed.

Repeat this process in all the holes. For better results, allow the concrete to dry completely before you proceed. This will take a maximum around 2 to 3 days.

For a smoother finish, use a shovel to spread concrete evenly to smoothen the holes.
