heaviest is on a distinguished road
Default Re: Pool's open
FWIW I've looked into the cost of inground pools. Inground because getting super heavy people up the ladder of an above ground pool isn't really possible. Need concrete stairs and a sturdy rail.

I've also looked into the possibility of building it myself. I could make a special-purpose shallow-slope stair and a super shallow pool portion for loading big people onto floaties. I'm thinking an L-shape with a special purpose very shallow side that'd double as a kids pool on one leg, a traditional shallow side on the other leg, and a deep-ish but not very deep part between them. Dream pool, but no diving section. But will probably settle for something smaller. Or chicken out altogether.

Groundbreaking not before next year. Looking into construction technique and building and yard code.
