We physically mark the area for the project prior to the start of construction. Often we do this during the design process for a visual.
The use of a dig plan aids in preparation of the pool hole. It helps to ensure that the pool will sit at the exact desired elevation needed to complete the project.
We use the aid of stakes, string lines, and a surveyors transit to ensure that we grade the bottom to the exact elevations we need.
After digging the pool hole, we compact the area to assist with settling of the shell once we begin to add the weight of water. We add sand, & sometimes rock to help create a stable base for the pool bottom.
Ever heard of a pool shell "popping" or issues with the high water table? We install an underground rock filtration system in the pool hole prior to install. This assist us in the installation in case of an abundance of ground water, and is left capped and hidden incase its needed in the future.
Fiberglass pools are delivered direct from the San Juan Fiberglass Pool factory in Lakeland, FL. We use the aid of a boom truck or crane to lift them off the truck and into the pool hole!
After delivery, we use landscape timbers and bottle jacks to hold the level of the pool from shifting once we start to add water and backfill. We also consistently check the elevation with a transit, stakes, and string lines!
Now that we have a pool we can start hooking together the pool plumbing. Prior to adding the equipment, we must first pass a pressure inspection to ensure that there are no leaks in the plumbing!
Water is put into the pool with the use of a garden hose. The water must be added at the same time as the backfill to help equalize the pressure inside and outside of the pool shell so that the pool doesn't bow in or out.
The use of clean washed fine grade sand is used to backfill the pool.
NEVER use the same dirt from the hole to backfill your pool. This can eventually lead to settling issues which can damage your pool, deck, or enclosure. We wash down the sand for tight compaction. We also walk the bottom of EVERY pool to ensure that there are no areas that are hollow under the shell.
Everyone of our installs is finished with a concrete footer 1' wide by 1' deep, and includes two pieces of #4 rebar. The concrete footer stabilizes the pool and helps prevent future settling or shifting of the pool shell.
The deck and custom features are typically the last part of the project! Depending on the options in the project design, customization can extend the installation completion time for the entire project. Typically the pool is already up and circulating!
