German translation:Betonplatte mit stahlarmierten Wänden
Explanation:
The entire sub base consists of:

Betonplatte mit stahlarmierten Wänden

http://www.frenz-schwimmbadbau.de/Maisfeld/maisfeld.htm:

für den speziellen Typ von Fertigbecken bestimmte statische Voraussetzungen notwendig sind (Stützwände, Betonplatte)

There's not really a German word that reflects what is really meant - the sub base doesn't just carry the pool, it also keeps it straight.
