Installation Process

After picking your perfect pool and setting your design for your backyard, there are 6 pool installation stages:

Stage 1

Excavation of Pool

For accuracy, a design template that is the exact size and shape of the pool you purchased will be used to layout the placement of your fiberglass inground pool. A dig print is used for the excavation that is specific for your pool’s design and shape. The hole is dug meticulously to prevent needing an unnecessary amount of backfill, and compacted to prevent unwanted settling.

Stage 2

Pool Delivery

Your fiberglass pool arrives at your home on a truck-trailer. The pool is offloaded from the trailer and lowered into place in the excavated hole after a compacted bed of gravel is prepared. Guide stakes, string lines and laser levels are used to ensure accurate placement and leveling.

Stage 3

Pool Leveling

After placing the pool on the gravel bed, the floor of the pool is walked on to ensure that there are no voids or humps that were formed during the placement. Water is then added to the pool simultaneously along with backfill. Continuous checking of the levelness of the pool is critical.
