Ever thought of having a pool at home spending around $ 500? This is perfectly possible if you opt for a pallet pool. Yes, the same pallet used to make furniture and a hundred crafts can also be used to make pools. They are cheap, versatile and sustainable. Now there is no excuse for not having a pool at home.
And best of all, you can build the pool yourself in the good old-fashioned "Do It Yourself" style. With a simple step by step (which we'll have to teach here) your pool will be beautiful and ready for the summer.
There are several models of pallet pools that can be made. The most common are high, built above ground. This model allows the creation of a high deck to accompany the pool, leaving the look even more beautiful.
Pallet pools can be round, square, oval or oval and in the size you desire. Usually, the inside of them is made of canvas. But there are also models with swimming pools made of plastic, fiber or masonry lined pallet. It all depends on how much you are willing to spend on the project.
No matter the size or the way your pool is built, the pallet will always value the environment where it is inserted, giving a rustic and cozy atmosphere to the house.

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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- After attaching all the pallets to one another, reinforce the structure using ratchet straps for loading;
- 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
- Take the other polyethylene tarp and throw it over, securing it to the pallets with a strong adhesive tape
- Finish the top with wooden boards or whatever you prefer
- Finally, fill the pool with water. Now it's just fun!
