Repurposing Swimming Pools

Saturday, May 14 at 9:00 am (PT)

Have a swimming pool you’ve realized is underused, requires too much maintenance, is too expensive to keep up and is a tremendous waste of water? Instead of simply filling it in and putting a lawn on top, consider the expanse of possibilities for reconfiguring such prime backyard real estate. Tary Campbell, construction project manager and water conservation specialist for REALM™ will share fresh ideas for making innovative use of former pools. Options include redesigning former pools to accommodate a sunken patio as well as going an extra step and converting the swimming pool into a built-in water harvesting system below ground with an outdoor-living space above.

Saturday, May 14 | 9 a.m. to noon

Cost: $65, $55 members (register early, limit of 10).
