Shipping containers are not only intended for shipping, storage or transport. They can easily be used for many other projects. From garden office to care units, office containers and even swimming pools; the possibilities with containers are only limited by your imagination.
Having a backyard pool is a dream, but underground pools can be priceless and above ground pools are sometimes not the prettiest. That is why using a shipping container can be a great solution.
The shipping container as a swimming pool container is not only cost effective, but the industrial style provides a modern look and becomes a statement in your garden.
In this blog we discuss the steps you need to take to build a swimming pool with a shipping container.
Planning is the most important step for any project. You should contact the municipality to investigate any regulations related to this, such as for proper building permits and other requirements.
The next step is the choice of the shipping container, which size, quality and type. For example, should the shipping container be reinforced? They generally don't start out as completely waterproof, so you may need to add extra layers on the inside. It is also important to ensure that the shipping container can support the weight of all the water.
Once the planning is complete, it's time to start applying the necessary modifications. When the container is made to the desired size, care is taken to finish all sharp edges. Then the container is made completely watertight, of course this is checked several times, otherwise you will soon have a large empty container in your garden, instead of a beautiful swimming pool.
The steel is also treated for rust and both the inside and outside are sprayed. This is of course possible in any desired RAL color.
Finally, the finishing touches are added such as pumps, filters, steps and side floors. Of course, this can also be added yourself.
For example, a nice idea is to add a glass window to the side to view the depths of the pool.
