      Just a cheap 10ft Bestway/intex pool. I wish I had gone bigger to be honest, but space was a bit of an issue.

    What kind of material did you to make the pool? Did you do the pool DIY ir was it from a box pool kit? I just wanna make sure animals can't get to the lining of the pool hidden where the boards are thinking they're sneaky and it rip.... here in Missouri they are tricky!!! Lol you did amazing though!!!
    Can you use a box pool kit, dig dirt and set it in there?

      The pool was just a cheap 10ft Bestway/intex. The material is pretty tough, but we dont really have any scary wild animals here. A hedgehog would do a lot less damage than a mountain lion (??). You could of course use a box kit and dig it down further, I guess. Cheers

    At what point did you put your liner on the frame?

      Right at the end. The frame and liner can all be assembled in the cut out space.

    Hi, what is you filtering system, sand or cartridge.

    • Andrew Oxton

      Cartridge. It works well enough, but will be upgrading to a decent sand filter next year, i think.
