Hello, I have a friend that would like to put a pool in his livign room but is concerned about the weight of the pool...he lives in an apartment building so in between each floor it's concrete(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

the pool holds 705 gallons (2680 litres) and its diameter is 9 feet and the water will be 21 inches high...i figured that 2680 litres weighs 5,908lbs or 2,680 kilograms.....also the area taht this weight will be on is about 63.6 feet (pi x r = 4.5^2) however i don't know how strong concrete is and whether it will be able to sustain this weight (which seems like a lot to me)

any help on this would be appreciated or even a final answer so that my friend can avoid a lawsuit!
