Installation Process for Fiberglass Pools

by My Fibreglass Pool Professional inground fibreglass swimming pool bui



Installing a swimming pool is a big task. There are lots of procedures and sub-procedures involved. When it comes to installing a fiberglass pool, there are certain steps that would come chronologically. Here is the list:

 

Ø Excavation

Ø Setting and Leveling the Pool

Ø Plumbing the Pool and Filter System

Ø Back-filling the Pool Shell

Ø Coping and Patio

Ø Pool Fence

Ø Phase One: Excavation



First, it’s the excavation part that would be carried out. A big excavator will be used to dig the hole for lifting and setting the pool. The dirt being formed because of digging will be collected using a skid steer. The pool builders will paint the pool on the ground while using a laser level to calculate the height of the pool. Accordingly, the hole would be dug.

 

o   Phase Two: Placement of the grave foundation

Once the excavation part gets over, the pool builders Brisbane will be placing a 2”-3” thick gravel layer in the hole. This is done to ensure that the pool finds a suitable support to rest on. The gravel base will also play an integral role in determining the overall pool height. This will help in setting the gravel at precisely the correct elevation point. Gravel is always a better alternative to sand when it comes to the installation. Using sand, there can be certain problems in pool settlement, and also other issues like bulges in the walls, leaks in plumbing and fittings, etc. On the other hand, gravel never causes such problems.

 

o   Phase Three: Plumbing the pool while handling the filter system

The filter system comprises two major components- pool pump and filter. The pump is used for circulating the water while the filter helps in removing the micro particles and debris from the water. The filter system will also be fitted with valves to control the flow of water, a switch to turn on and off the pool light, a heater, and salt water chlorinators.

 

o   Phase Four: Backfilling of the pool shell

After the completion of the plumbing work, the pool is being set in the hole and leveled accordingly. After that, fill the pool with water. Also, it is time to backfill around the gravel outsets. It is necessary to get both the filling of the pool with water and backfilling on the outside of the gravel carried out simultaneously to equalize the pressure.

 

o   Phase Five: Coping and decking

Once the pool is completely backfilled and inspections being approached, the pool builders will start with the installation of the coping around the top the pool patio and pool shell. The patio can take somewhere in between 2–5 days to get installed. The patio is responsible for locking the pool shell into place.

 

o   Phase Six: Fencing

Once the patio installation part gets completed, it’s time to focus on the home stretching and fencing part. It would depend entirely on the weather condition as to how much more time to get completed. Get the pool fence installed properly. Get it approved. Fiberglass pools or any other variant of inground swimming pools require proper fencing around the pool to safeguard the area and prevent chances of accidents.
