Yes, sand is absolutely needed. With both the bamboo shark and the cat shark they "require sand as the substrate as the abdomen is easily scratched by a coarser substrate, which may lead to an infection" (liveaquaria.com).

A pool bottom wouldn't be suitable for them, because it would be hard.

Also you would require what any aquarium requires. Filters, a Skimmer, Live Rock, Sand. I would build a sump out of a Large tub. It wouldn't be cheap, cheap. Lighting would only need to be normal lighting as your not growing coral.

May seem like a dumb question but would they pop an inflatable pool?

I was thinking more like this

Heritage Round 12' x 36'' Metal-Walled Swimming Pool - Walmart.com

It's a lot stronger and has a port hole to view into. If you were to do something like this, I would find a place that could take your sharks off your hands fast and in a hurry if an emergency happened and the pool breaks. Plus, I wouldn't be putting this in the basement of a home. This would be an outside project in a barn in case of failure. So a good heater and possibly a chiller would be necessary. So when it is all said and done, the tank might be cheap, but everything else won't be. Like I said, I would just make sure that you had someone that could care for all your sharks in case the thing breaks, before you even start the project or buy the sharks.
