Step One: Find the best location for a wading pool in your backyard

To get started you will need to decide where you want to locate your pool. To build a wading pool you will need an area that is level.

Step Two: Clear the area so you have a nice and leveled place for the wading pool

Clear your level area of all sticks, stones, bricks or anything that could cut your plastic as you build a wading pool to the size you want.

Step Three: let’s get down to business

You will now lay out the railroad ties on the ground for your bottom edge supports. The ties should not have anything sharp sticking out of them to build a wading pool. Place the ties 2 feet inside the outside edge of your cleared area.

Step Four: building the wading pool

To build a wading pool that won’t leak, lay the heavy plastic sheet over the railroad tie edge. Smooth the plastic down the inside flat side area and across the bottom foundation. Feel for anything that is poking the plastic to ensure you build a wading pool that can last.

Step Five: make sure everything is done correctly

Your plastic will come down over the railroad tie to the outside all the way to the ground. In order to build a wading pool correctly you will need to anchor the plastic edge with bricks or blocks so that the weight of the water will not pull the plastic up and out of its supports.

Step Six: filling water in the wading pool

wading poolUse your hose to fill your wading pool. Fill up to 6 inches of water in the wading pool and then check for leaks in the plastic. When you build a wading pool for children or pets you might not want as much water as for adults. This will be up to each individual to decide how much water to use in your wading pool.

Step Seven: decorate your new wading pool

If you want you can add a decorative edge over the plastic side and blocks or bricks that you’ve used to build a wading pool. These alternatives could be pool stones layered against the side and top for a rustic look or even wood planks to make sitting on the top edge easier. Use your imagination here. Remember when you build a wading pool with plastic that it can become slick.
