AbstractA swimming pool of the liner type, with an improved sidewall construction. The sidewall comprises a plurality of concrete slabs cast between spaces defined by inner and outer vertical walls and vertical studs spaced therein. The inner wall is preferably formed of a rigid pressure treated wood material and bears against the pool liner. A continuous upper sill and a lower footer of concrete are cast integrally with the sidewall slabs to join adjacent respective slab portions around the upper and lower perimeters of the pool. The sidewall slabs and the upper sill preferably contain steel reinforcement bars.
