How Do You Make a Truck Bed Pool?

Making a truck bed pool is an easy and inexpensive way to enjoy a refreshing dip in the summer heat. With a few simple supplies, you can quickly and easily make a fun, safe, and durable pool for you and your family.

Materials Needed:

  • Truck Bed Liner
  • PVC Pipes with Fittings
  • Flexible Pool Liner
  • Large Sheet of Plywood
  • Pool Pump &Filter
  • Hose Clamps & Screws
  • Adhesive Sealant

Step 1: Prepare the Truck Bed
Start by preparing the truck bed. Begin by removing any dirt or debris that may have accumulated in the bed over time.

Once it’s clean, apply a truck bed liner to protect the surface from damage due to water or other elements. This will also help to prevent rusting.

Step 2: Assemble PVC Frame
Once your truck bed is prepped, assemble the PVC frame for your pool. Cut several PVC pipes to size and fit them together with fittings to create a rectangular frame. Securely attach them with hose clamps or screws.

Next, place a large sheet of plywood onto the truck bed. Make sure that it covers the entire area of the frame and is securely attached so that it doesn’t move when you fill it up with water.

Now attach the flexible pool liner onto the frame using adhesive sealant. Make sure that it is securely attached so that there are no gaps between it and the frame.

After attaching the liner, install your pool pump and filter system according to manufacturer instructions. This will ensure that your pool stays clean and clear throughout the summer season.


Making a truck bed pool can be an easy and affordable way to cool off during a hot summer day! By following these steps, you can quickly make an enjoyable, safe, and durable pool for all your friends and family to enjoy!
