I typical model the water as a floor, to apply the material i just create a new floor type then change the structure material to a preset material. Site - Water would most likely already be setup in your file. You can edit this to change transparency or duplicate it to create a new material. HTH.

You might consider first if you want a chlorinated pool (common type) or salt water pool.

My aunt installed a swimming pool about 3 years ago only to find out that her children have chlorine allergy

I have made several pools, I generally model in place with a sweep blend. I model the water as Mr. Spot has suggested.

A magnificently constructed swimming pool is a dream to all.However once you have decided to construct a pool, there are so many thoughts that walk in randomly.Me and my wife also planning making an Endless Pool and situating it in our garage. 

I read out interesting and informative ideas.This information will be helpful for me.Thanks everyone...

typically gunite pools have a 5" thick vertical wall for the upper 3 feet, at the top resides a bond beam 12" wide by 12" high, ususally this is tapered on the back side to the 5" shell. below this 3' depth, known as a springline the pool is curved in section so the deep end is typically 5' in radius, shallow end 2' radius down to 6" radius. upper portion of the pool can be created with a simple sweep. the lower portion is a little more complicated and is done with a sweep blend.
