A swimming pool in your backyard is something that a lot of people want, but a few can actually have this luxury. Having to handle the maintenance of an entire swimming pool is a lot of effort, not to mention how costly it is. But at the end of the day, there is nothing quite like having your private pool to relax in.
One man took his love for swimming to a whole new level and constructed a massive swimming pool in his backyard. Jerry Leussink is a resident of Canada, and has an entire farm for a yard, giving him an ample amount of space to construct his massive pool. Jerry decided to start this out as a backyard project, making use of the beautiful landscape that was in front of him. He soon began transforming the yard, bit by bit. He first started out by digging the ground with a tractor he borrowed from his brother. He then went on to create the rustic floorboards and landscape around it, which is what gave it the beautiful natural feel that it needed.
The pool that he constructed is massive – ninety into seventy feet massive. The pool is also fourteen feet deep, which makes it brilliant for diving. The entire pool is powered by solar panels because Jerry has always believed in leading a greener lifestyle. One of the plus points about living in Canada is that the pool also doubles as a skating and hockey rink during the winter since the temperatures drop so low that the water freezes over.
The project has been gaining a lot of attention from people who want to try and construct their own pool in their backyards, after all, it is a brilliant summer project that is sure to keep you and your family entertained through the season.
