I would be really interested in doing something similar.

We get a lot of frogs/toads which my wife hates, so a pool is pretty much out, but I do love the sound of running water.

Does it use a single supply of water recycled? I presume it needs power too?

BAD idea unless, you want to void your liner guarantee.*

Most liner makers will NOT honor any guarantee if you use carpet, you should use sand (2inch layer) OR a liner underlay. (Depending on what the maker says)

Old carpet, rots after time, giving no support and it does not fit corners very well, again, giving no support.

Your choice.

*Liners often have anything from 5 -35 year guarantee.

I showed it to 'himself' - he loves it, it might be something to think about next year, however, he's a total DIY disaster.
I can 'see' him thinking though...
