Imagine doing laps in your own shipping container swimming pool.

Ok let’s back up for a second, swimming in a used cargo container? That sounds crazy…

As eccentric as it seems, a cargo container pool can actually be a good idea. And you’re almost guaranteed to be the only person who has one in your street, heck your town.

You’d be locally famous as the person with a shipping container pool.

Container is cut and will be enough for housing of 2 pools.


The structure is often more durable than many other above ground pools says Robust Pools, an Australian company who’s building and offering these container pools for sale.

You can buy them in either 6 metre or 12 metre length, so even if you’re a fast swimmer there’s enough room for a proper workout.

The container pool is fully assembled when it’s delivered to you, all you need to do is fill it up with water and have the filter system connected to the mains – pretty easy.

Oh yeah, and about that water filtration system. You can choose between a chlorine, magnesium or salt water pool.

That means eco-friendly minded people can enjoy this too, especially since the cargo container is used and upcycled.

Just fill the pool with water and you’re ready to go.


Think about how much fun having one of these would be.

You could get fit and healthy in your own backyard without ever having to set foot in a gym again.

And then there’s the legendary pool parties you could have, an absolute must with something as cool as a shipping container pool to show off.

What’s the price of the shipping container pool?

Prices vary from country to country, however a shipping container pool conversion by Adaptainer in the UK costs from £20,000.

Yep, around £20k gets you into the quirky (and very niche) club of container pool owners.

Actually, when I think about how much Toronto design company Castor were charging for their shipping container sauna ($41,000 USD) the pool really does seem like a steal.

Of course, if money is no object then what better combination than a shipping container swimming pool AND sauna. They go together like bread and butter, just a bit more expensive.
