Are you wanting to make an inground pool or above ground pool? Since I am not sure what you are trying to do I will list a couple ideas for you
Dan, please give me a little more information to go on. I've had both above and in-ground pools, and from experience I can tell you that the pool sales people are your best source of information on purchase, installation and pool maintenance. Although I use other sites frequently for "how-to" info, a pool is not one of them. Not only is there potential for danger (electrical, drowning, illness, etc.), but there are so many technical issues that you need professional advice about (like water chemistry). Visit several pool dealers to find one you can trust to install and keep your pool clean and safe.
