Tips for building a DIY Swimming Pool

  • Budget for add-ons. Whilst the DIY pool kit provides you with the basic parts to build your pool, you may wish to budget for add-ons such as outdoor lighting, safety fencing, swimming pool covers or additional landscaping.
  • Consider your location carefully. Once installed, the pool will not be able to be moved unless at a very high cost. Draw a scale plan of your garden and ensure you have the right space before building. Keep away from trees or shaded areas and make sure no electric cables, water or gas pipes run through the proposed site.
  • Tools for the job. You will require an extensive number of tools to complete the task, including specialist equipment such as an industrial vacuum cleaner and angle grinder.
  • Manpower. If you are planning on building the pool without any heavy machinery, then you’ll likely need the help of a team of people to assist with the initial digging.
  • Time. Ensure that you’ve blocked out enough spare time to complete this project, as once you start, you’ll want to ensure that each task is completed within quick succession of one another.
  • Materials. On top of the initial DIY pool kit, you will also require standard building materials including soft sand, ballast, cement and 40mm shingle. Make sure you have all of these materials to hand before starting the build.
  • Get help if needed. If you aren’t confident with a certain aspect of the process, then seek help for those parts. You may be able to excavate and level the hole to your satisfaction but might not be able to execute the plumbing. Hire someone to help rather than sacrifice quality.

Do I need planning permission for a DIY Swimming Pool?

In most cases, you do not need planning permission to build a DIY swimming pool. However, you may need to contact your planning office if you are living in:

  • an area of outstanding natural beauty
  • conservation area
  • green belt
  • a listed building

How long does it take to get council approval for a pool?

Approval from a council for your pool build, should you need it, could be expected to be delivered between 8 and 16 weeks, depending on the circumstances. Planning authorities are duty-bound to make decisions on applications quickly, and as such, there is a statutory determination period of 8 weeks for ‘straight forward planning applications’. In cases where an Environmental Impact Assessment is needed, this period is extended to 16 weeks.

How do you heat a DIY swimming pool?

Swimming Pool Heat Pumps are the most popular way to heat a swimming pool. We can offer a range of heat pumps, standard heat pump or inverter part or full inverter that can enable you to keep the pool warm for summer, extended summer or longer if wanted.
