First stages, the initial line of blocks are sitting on a 3 inch thick concrete foundation. For drainage there is a simple hose which will be adapted to attach to a small pond pump with a sprinkler attachment for watering the garden when the pool is drained - in the campo no water gets wasted.
Taking shape, one block was missed out to allow ease of access. A step is placed on the outside and on the inside too - although the pool will only hold 3ft of water we had to allow for the younger generation who will probably use it the most...!
and then look what happens, we get rained off! And what a storm it was - 6 hours not stop of heavy rain.
More coming up inc: seats in the pool, materials used/waterproofing, and finished effect
