Man builds incredible homemade pallet pool all on his own
Kayla Harrison, 26, is a service coordinator and influencer based in Dickson, Tennessee. She filmed these videos between July 10th - 17th, 2021 at her home.
"My husband decided that he wanted to build a pool. We could not afford to buy one. I looked all over the internet for a reasonably priced pool but they were all several hundred dollars. Caleb was convinced that he could build one just out of scraps he found around the jobsite" said Kayla. Kayla admits to being weary at first, but "he was so determined, so I was like 'whatever, go ahead!' said Kayla.
"So he started to build this thing. It's pallets braced together. He coated the interior with foam so no splinters would puncture the plastic. Then he laid a white thick waterproof plastic in it. Over that he added a blue tarp, for more of a pool feel. He installed bracing and hurricane strapping around the corners and sides. Then he installed the pump and filter and then added the vinyl around the outside and painted it to give it that final finished look" said Kayla.
"We spent $29 on the tarp and 70 on chemicals. We attempted to build an interior ladder to get out but that didn't work out. The material for that cost us $40. So in total it cost us about $140 to build" said Kayla.
And not only that, it only took him about ten hours over the course of a week to make!
"He started on a Saturday and finished the next Saturday. Now that it's completed we swim in it on a regular basis. We have full intention to make a much bigger and better pool next summer!" said Kayla.
