The pool was built in 1934 to store drinking water for the needs of the village members. The pool was 6 m in diameter and 12 m high. There was a large security post and spotlight on the pool. The village guards watched from the pool over the Arab villages in the area.
On the pool hung a bell made of a large iron ring on which an iron pipe was struck. The ringing of the bell informed members of a gathering, celebration, or disaster. During the war the bell was for alarm purposes. On holidays they waved flags on the pool and on disaster days black flags.
The pool was a place for games and activities for the teens. The names of the boys listed on it were written in 1944.
