    THAILAND:- My 3,000 Baht Swimming Pool

    OK ... it's not 'mine' as in I own it ... but it was fun to watch it being built.

    OK 'Swimming Pool' also might be a an overreach ... but the Mozzies could swim in it !

    Jaysus, you'd have to be one of the most unrelentingly and determinedly miserable old coots in existence. It's almost as though you want to be miserable and put actual effort into it.

    Wanna know what won't crack? Your face into a smile, that's what, you sad old goat!

    If that was in Australia it would have to have an 8 foot barbed wire alarmed fence round it.

    Australia's swimming pool fence laws are the stupidest most over-emotional under-rational legislation ever passed.

    If you're after a cheap pool maybe this will interest you. Although their prices seem excessive, I'm sure you could do it yourself a lot cheaper than that.

    With a heater and some bubbles it'd make a good spa

    I've flirted with the idea of a pool on and off for a while but always come to the same conclusion: fuck it, too much effort and maintenance.

    Besides the communal moo baan pool's only a minute away.

    Swimming pool - a man made excavation into which you throw bundles of money on a regular basis.

    @david - is it for the kids when you guys visit? If so, then it's ok - shld be good until they're 5 or 6 y.o. After that, you could fill it up w/ soil & plant some veggies. Heh.

    I like the shipping container pool, wouldn't mind having that in my hacienda. 555

    What were they using to stain the outside of the pool? Was that ginger root?

    I described in my thread http://teakdoor.com/construction-in-...d-so-easy.html (A swimming pool in Thailand so easy)
    an affordable swimming pool 12x3 m I built 12 years ago. Not really by myself as in the previous video - with a help of Thai workers - and they do not work for nothing. So it was for little bit more than $3,000, but really affordable.

    And it serves well with minimum maintenance, for my daily long track swimming, surviving two earthquakes when the water run over the edge.

    Now this pool is set up wrong, the steps are at the wrong end.
    The step should be at the end where the sun deck is.

    Yes Harry the steps are down the fare end of the pool.
    The 4 pictures you posted, I removed 3 pictures as the steps are in the right place.
    Only leaving the 1 picture where the steps are at the wrong end of the pool.

    It's just that I'm not sure how you can tell from that angle if it's got steps at both ends.

    There appears to be some sort of reflection on the left hand side, look closely...

    Look under the decking and see the pools fibre hull, it's straight with no steps, unless there's a ladder step that we can't see.
    Ratch is right.
