You state "The pool after all is a man-made object that just sits on the ground".  Some pools sit on the surface of the ground, and so could potentially be moved from one location to another.  Others are built into an excavation, and can't be moved without demolishing them.  They are a permanent change to the landscape, unless you fill them in.
