This pool measures 7m (23ft) x 3.5m (11.5ft) and is 1.8m (5.9ft) in the deep end and 1.1m (3.6ft) in the shallow end. The pool itself holds about 38,000 litres (10,040 gallons) of water. There was approximately 21m³ (742ft³) of concrete used to construct the pool and cantilevered beam. The purpose of this beam was to support the weight of the block boundary wall.

Filmed using a GoPro Hero2 which was mounted on the side of the 'pool house' taking a photo every 30 seconds for 8-12 hours each working day. The filmed section of this project took over 3 months which included over 44 working days.

The costings for the pool including excavation and tipping fees, steel supply and labour, concrete supply and labour, rendering, tile supply and labour and pool equipment (filter etc) was approx. $30,000 AUD (21,000 USD).

This pool was an owner-built project which in the long run saved us approximately 50% of the price quoted to us by pool construction companies.
