The Sims Freeplay- Adding a Pool

Before you can get the tools to add a pool to your houses gardens you need to have completed the Its All Going Swimmingly Quest.

Once that quest is done in the garden section of the home store you will see the new pool tabs which includes building the pool, pool interior, pool paving, paver width and pool items.

Building a pool is a lot like building a room but you need to remember you need at least one extra square around the pool for the paving so even though the pool can be as small as 3×3 with the paving its 5×5.

And unlike rooms you can join pools together to make different shapes!

Once you have built the pool you can add items to it such as inflatables and a diving board (if you have completed the diving collection for the first time) and items around the pool such as beach towels.

Making an island in the middle of a pool

This video explains how to do it:

Paver Width
Click on the paver width tab and select the width you want to increase/ decrease the paving around your pool, the picture below shows the widths:

If you have a weather machine at your house where your pool is when you put it on snow it freezes the pool so you can do the figure skating hobby!

Cleaning the pool

When the pool is green it will need to be cleaned, otherwise your sims will just get straight out of the water instead of doing the action you want, click on the pool and select the option clean pool.

Watch this video for more information on cleaning pools and using the weather machine!

Adding Diving Boards

Diving boards have to be placed with one square over the water and 2 squares on land, like the picture below shows:
image

You can unlock diving boards by completing the diving hobby for the first time.

Using the pool

In the pool you can:
image

-Go swimming, click somewhere in the pool and your sim will swim there
image

-If you have two sims you can interact with the other sim:

  • Flip- 4 seconds
  • Splash- 10 seconds
  • Chat- 4 minutes

image

Toddlers can play in the pool with the help of a teen, adult or senior

NOTE: You need steps for your sims to be able to use the swimming pool

When you want your sim to get out of the pool click on the ground above some steps and they will get out and get changed.

Can I complete this quest even though I have passed level 13?
Yes, you just need to complete all previous quests then this quest will start automatically

Why are there two versions of this quest?
Some quests have two versions, as when the makers have updated the times for quests they haven’t updated them on all devices so some players still get the old times

This post may help

Can I build the swim center before starting this quest?
No, you have to get the goal in this quest before you can start building it

Go to the swim center and click on the whistle next to a sim who isn’t busy on the simtracker, this post explains more about the simtracker

How long does supervise in a lifeguard chair take to complete?

I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?
This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post
