In the sticks it is very hard to maintain if you are not there. My friend in Nakon nowhere filled his in because when he wasn't there it turned into a pond and filled with bugs and frogs!😥

But back on topic 200k for an average small pool sounds good

Maybe look at a shipping container pool, very cost-effective in Australia especially if you can do a bit of landscaping yourself ... maybe these people can help in Thailand ... http://www.containerkingsthailand.com/

 

Standard container size length 20ft (6 metres) would fit your bill or 40 ft (12 metres) also easy to get but access for truck that size may be a problem.

Sounds more like a kiddies paddling pool which they would soon grow out of. Why not just buy a plastic inflatable pool? It would be much cheaper.

I have been gathering information for a pool build in Issan for about a month. Some generalizations from the data I have:

  • In-ground tiled concrete and fiberglass cost about the same here in Thailand.
  • Most quotations I have received by pool businesses fall around 18,000 to 20,000 per square meter complete and ready to swim. Depths are 1.2 to 1.5.
  • A few quotes were 50% more. 1 was 25% less.
  • There are a lot of farangs building pools for other farangs. (Reminds me of the false economy of Japanese doing business with Japanese in Hawaii. They were happy things were cheaper than Tokyo, and had no idea what the real costs should be.)
  • DIY could easily cost 10,000 to 12,000 per m2 if built to the same spec and using mid range pump,  filter and salt chlorinator.

I would love more information before deciding on the build!

And a lot of them know what they are doing, there's some good thai-australian pool companies, the amount you pay extra is simply for their experience like in every other business too.

Nice big pool for a good price. I’m curious about your foundation, rebar, walls, plumbing, tiles, and choice of pump chlorinator, etc. 

 

DIY rocks!
