|Fiberglass Swimming Pool Installation
Anyone who has had a concrete swimming pool built in their backyard knows that the process can take months. Fences are ripped down, yards are torn apart, and foundations are laid and re-laid. By the time the job is complete, one swimming season has passed and it is months until the weather turns warm again.
A fiberglass pool can be installed within days. Once a person's backyard has been surveyed, the pool layout is marked. Once the dig begins, the hole will be worked until it is the appropriate shape and depth. When the hole is ready, the pool is set, and then it is filled with water. Electrical and plumbing equipment is then put into place, and then a concrete foundation is poured around the pool. If all of the prep work has been done, the actual installation should be fast and incident-free.
Installing Indoor Pools
There are concerns that are specific to the installation of an indoor fiberglass pool. The pool will be delivered in one piece, and it is important that the shell is set up before the onset of rough construction. Indoor pools are often installed on loose soil. If this is the case, footings must be set at least 18 inches deeper than the shell. Before a contractor begins work on an indoor pool, he should talk the buyer through any unique problems that might be encountered.
