Step by step to make a simple pallet pool

List the materials you need to start making your pool:

  • 10 pallets;
  • Varnish or stain;
  • Towels, sheets and cloths;
  • Nails, screws, hammer and drill;
  • Strap with ratchet to secure the frame;
  • Two large polyethylene tarpaulins (plus or minus 5mx4m);
  • Strong adhesive tape;
  • Water to fill the pool;

Now check out the step-by-step

  1. Before starting, make sure that the ground where the pool will be assembled does not have any sharp objects or elevations. It is advisable to give a "fluff" on the ground to ensure that no stone or other object harms the pool
  2. Once done, prepare the pallets by sanding them and passing two to three coats of varnish or stain. This step is important to ensure the durability and strength of the material
  3. The next step is already assembling the pool. Begin by lining the floor with one of the polythene tarpaulins. Next, attach some pallets and fasten them with nails and screws so that they are securely attached to each other
  4. After attaching all the pallets to one another, reinforce the structure using ratchet straps for loading;
  5. Wrap the entire interior of the pool with rags and sheets that are not used or are already well beaten. Whatever you have at home, the important thing is to ensure that the swimming pool tarp does not come into contact with any rough surface
  6. Take the other polyethylene tarp and throw it over, securing it to the pallets with a strong adhesive tape
  7. Finish the top with wooden boards or whatever you prefer
  8. Finally, fill the pool with water. Now it's just fun!
