Shipping-Container Pools

Deciding on a Shipping Container Pool

Building a shipping container pool using a shipping container.

The question is, can a container be used for an underground swimming pool.
The answer is yes, but I don’t recommend it.
Yes it has been done and by these photos it looks great.
Im curious about 10 years from now and what problems you might have.

This is just my opinion, but you are dealing with a lot of new pressure that the shipping container was not built for. The internal pressure of the ton of water will certainly over time play a role in the status of your container. There is the rust factor as well.

But, they do look cool and I want to build one.

Below are some photos of containers being used to build a swimming pool. These are not our photos or our product.

The swimming pool at the TAXI development in Denver is made from two shipping containers welded together. Residents and employees at the development gather on a 100 degree day on the deck around the lap pool on Friday, June 29, 2012.
