Are DIY Wood Pallet Pools A Cheap Way To Make A Splash Or A Waste Of Time?

0 9

No matter what method they used, every pallet pool builder needed certain essentials. Must-haves for these projects are tarps or a pool liner, as well as reinforcements for the sides of the pool, usually ratchet straps and/or wooden bracing. Many DIYers don’t show or mention a pump or some chemical solution to keep the pool water safe to swim in.

Build It on YouTube pulled off their backyard pool for about $250 (£200), and that is most certainly a steal. At that price, their pallets were most likely free. They also mention using leftover material from other projects. The biggest expenses for Build It’s pool appear to be two extra large waterproof tarps they used to surround the structure and the line pool, and the two ratchet straps supporting the sides. Combined, these items likely made up most of their budget.

If you can find free pallets in your area and incorporate other free or repurposed material, the price tag on your backyard oasis could be close to Build It’s. Yet, that doesn’t include the very necessary costs for a filtration pump. There are seriously icky results of not cleaning your pool. If you’re going to invest the time and money in this project, take the extra steps to put in a filtration system. Filter pumps for an above-ground pool start around $150.
