pool at their summer cottage is no longer a luxury.After all, you can make it yourself.If you have the necessary funds, the pool itself, and you can buy.However, a person, which is a bit familiar with the construction works, can be equipped with such a structure, and without the involvement of specialists.Before you make a swimming pool with their hands, we need to understand what kinds of pools exist at all, as well as to learn about the pros and cons of each.

- The second step is to calculate the size of the pool.The foundation pit construction usually not less than 4 * 4 meters.The depth of the pool at the same time can be from a meter to two.The optimum depth - half a meter.
- Once the dimensions are determined, it is necessary to drive the pegs where the future will be located pool.Its shape may be circular, square or rectangular - depending on the tastes of the owner.
- mark the border, it is necessary to begin excavation.Dug a pit for the pool to be a little deeper and wider than on the plans.Thus, the dimensions of the walls should be increased by 40 to 50 cm. In determining the optimum pit depth is necessary to consider waterproofing layer.
- After the pit dug, you can begin to equalize the bottom and waterproofing.At the bottom of the pit poured sand.The layer must be 30 cm. Then the sand compacted.At the bottom we have to put equalized roofing in 2 - 3 layers and bitumen mastic.Ruberoid thus should slightly overlap the walls of the future pool.

- cement pool Before you start working with the walls of the pool, it is necessary to take into account the water drainage system.
- next stage of work - formwork.It is set on the edges of the pool.
- between the formwork and the ground is necessary to pour a layer of concrete.To make the walls stronger, you need to select the appropriate brand and concrete reinforcing mesh installed.
- When the concrete hardens, formwork should be removed.The walls of the basin when it is necessary to specially treated with a mixture of concrete and water.This process is also called zhelezneniem.
