How to find the materials needed for the pool

Find Redstone Minecraft

Before going into the details of the procedure on how to make a pool on Minecraft , I think you may be interested in learning more about where to find the necessary materials within the world of the Mojang title.

Well, the materials you’ll need to build the pool are: polished andesite blocks , fir plates , red banners , fences fir , fences dark oak , slabs of quartz , polished quartz blocks , polished red sandstone slabs , steps of polished andesite , ladders and buckets of water .

If you like, however, you make a automatic pool , you need to add the following materials: redstone dust , redstone repeaters , Observer blocks , pistons sticky and a lever .

At first glance, these materials may seem difficult to find, but in fact I can assure you that it is not so impossible to get them, even in the game’s Survival mode . On the other hand, on Minecraft everything is possible by putting a little effort into it. In particular, I guarantee you that these materials can be found playing for a few hours. In any case, if you really don’t want to use this amount of time, you can always play in Creative mode , where you already have all the materials available.

If you want to proceed in Survival mode, know that most of the materials necessary for the construction of the pool are obtained simply by playing Minecraft. Probably the most difficult elements to find in Mojang’s title are the redstone powder , which is obtained by extracting it from the raw redstone or by collecting it inside the trunks scattered throughout the game world, and the smooth red sandstone slabs that, instead, are obtained combining 3 blocks of smooth red sandstone .

My advice is to turn to a convenient external tool to understand how to obtain certain materials: I refer to MineSearch .

To use MineSearch, simply connect to its home page , write in the search bar (top right) the name of the element you need and select the most relevant result .

The combination of objects that you will have to use to obtain the searched item will appear on the screen . I can assure you that, using this tool, you will not have any problem to find all the materials necessary to build your swimming pool (or your automatic swimming pool).

Once you have collected the necessary materials, I would say that you are ready to proceed in building your swimming pool.

The first thing you need to do is find a space that has many free blocks of terrain . My advice is to try to explore the world a bit: Minecraft is chock full of meadows just waiting to be “modified”.

Free Minecraft blocks

Once you have found the right terrain, dig a hole 10 blocks long and 15 blocks wide .

Then create a thick “frame” 2 blocks of polished andesite .

Now, place 2 blocks of smoothed andesite on the right and 2 blocks on the left at the base of the pool.

Then deepen the pool by digging up to 3 blocks .

Then cover the floor and side “walls” with smooth quartz blocks .

At this point, place 3 polished quartz blocks at the base of the swimming pool, in order to create a sort of “step”.

The time has come to add a deckchair . Choose the position you want, on the left of the pool, and dig 2 blocks at the outermost point of the pool and one block at the inner point.

After that, place a fir slab in the first block outside the pool and place a red banner on it .

Next, cover the holes created with fir slabs and repeat this procedure to create, for example, another deckchair.

If you want to make an umbrella , just place a fir fence and combine it with a dark oak fence .

Then place, at the top of the umbrella, a mix of quartz slabs and smooth red sandstone slabs , creating the type of umbrella you prefer.

At this point, go to the other side of the swimming pool, position the steps of smooth andesite and place us on the ladders .

To create a diving board , go to the top of the pool and use 4 fir slabs .

Now, if you only need to have a normal swimming pool, all you have to do is fill the pool completely with a bucket of water .

I remind you that you must cover each side with water to be able to enjoy your swimming pool in Minecraft!

How to build an automatic pool on Minecraft

How do you say? Would you like to transform the swimming pool you have just built into an automatic swimming pool ? No problem, I’ll explain how to do it right away. If you have not yet followed the instructions in the chapter on how to build a swimming pool on Minecraft , I recommend starting from there.

After that, you have to go inside the pool, without water, and make it 5 blocks deep .

At this point, go to the base of the swimming pool (where there is the “step” created previously) and place a row of redstone powder .

Next, fill all the remaining blocks with redstone boosters .

Then place Observer blocks on top of each redstone repeater .

Afterwards, put a sticky piston on top of each Observer block.

Then place blocks of smooth quartz on top of the various sticky pistons.

Now, go back to where you placed the redstone, manually create some steps that will get you out and get the redstone dust to the outside , placing it on the steps.

Remember, later, to cover all the empty blocks with polished andesite and quartz blocks  .

Once this is done, go to the block where the redstone powder arrives and place a lever . Perfect, now you just have to have fun with your automatic pool. Just press the lever to make the water disappear and make the quartz blocks appear.

Mission accomplished! You have successfully created your automatic pool in Minecraft!
