Pallet pool deck – Having a cover around your pool on the floor not only beautifies your garden but also keeps the pool clean because less dirt gets into the pool. Building a deck around a pool on the ground is not as difficult as it sounds. The height is almost predetermined since you will need to set the deck on the same level as the top of the pool. In addition, the basic design is almost as soon as the shape of the pool is followed. Determine the area where the stairs will contact the floor. Take this area as a reference point. Buying pre-made stair stringer will make the project go faster. With any luck, you are going to buy a set that has the correct height of the pool.
Construct the pallet pool deck frame with pressure treated pallet. Build at a slightly lower height to the pool as you will have to add an extra due to the thickness of the deck plates. Use 2 by 2 centimeter poles buried in concrete at least 40 centimeters deep around the deck as the main support. Use 1 by 3 cm posts attached in an “X” shape as a cross brace. Connect them with screws and bolts. Finally, use 1-by-4-inch boards such as beams to attach the deck planks to surround the entire perimeter of the pool. Attach the 2×2 or 1×3 posts as stair railing and for the main deck area around the perimeter.

Lay the deck and ladder boards on the front of the strips with stainless steel screws or coated screws. They should be long enough to pass through the deck board and stairs. Place the cover on the top of the 1×4 beams using the same screws as on the stairs. Trim the platform to fit the shape of the pool. Attach a top post on the handrail, and attach the rail pickets no more than 1.5 centimeters apart so that a child’s head can not get out of the pickets. After completing the cover, decide whether to include the bottom of the cover or leave it open. If you want to include it, there are many options, like pre-fabricated fence panels cut to fit the size, shape and height of the pallet pool deck.
