Rectangle above ground pool is usually made of kits that come in large boxes and spend a lot of money. There is a much cheaper way to install a small pond on the ground than by buying an expensive steel-framed model that will eventually rust – even if it’s galvanized from the start. Another problem with the above ground pools made of kits is that water filtration and sanitation systems are almost always below standard because most of the money is allocated for steel frames and not for pond water treatment. A simple above ground pool can be constructed in various forms using a 150 mm concrete block from your local builder and waterproof with a PVC coating and equipped with a water treatment system that is truly functional and ensures that children can use the pool without getting sick.
Rectangle above ground pool like it can be square, round or octagonal. If the wall is around 4 feet or 1.2 meters high, the water depth can reach 40 inches or about 1.0m. The concrete beam wall will hold this water level if supported externally by further concrete support built at 2-meter intervals around the edge of the pond. This support only needs 40 inches or about 1 meter wide and must always is built at the right angle (as planned) to the main pool wall. The beauty of this structural system is that the support can be used to support wooden decking around the pool perimeter. The pool walls and supporting walls will need the right concrete foundation and this must be at least 16 inches or 400 mm wide and carried down through the topsoil to fairly hard ground.

The foundation must be at least 6 inches or 150mm thick. They can be stepped on if the pool is not built on the site level. Swimming pools can also be placed on the ground if needed to reduce visual depravity. The side in the water facing the concrete wall must be flat so that the pool side is smooth. Ponds above ground do not lose heat received from the sun very quickly at night and to counteract this effect, polystyrene panels can be attached to the face of the inside of the pool wall. Amateur bricklayers can build one of these pools quite quickly and easily but care needs to be taken to ensure the structural integrity of the wall and may be easier and faster to engage a professional.
A skimmer and three drains that can be purchased from a local pool shop also need to be installed through the pool walls. The skimmer must be installed so as to maintain the design water level. Two drains must be installed around 400 mm below the surface of the water and the third water channel (which actually functions as a drain) must be installed just above the pool floor. All three must be on the opposite side of the skimmer.
