After wanting to know how much it costs to install an in-ground liner pool, the second question everybody has is “how long does it take?” There are four major steps (and many small steps in between) in the pool installation process that takes between two and three weeks to complete – depending on the type of pool and options selected.
At Daigle Pools, we have in-ground pool installation down to a science. With a very thorough planning process, our clients know exactly what to expect and how much it will cost before the contract is signed. With our own in-house construction team, the build process of our in-ground liner pools runs very smoothly from start to finish with a consistent level of quality on every job we do.
SEE HOW WE DO A POOL INSTALLATION HERE
Phase 1 – Planning
During the planning process, pool styles, options and budgets are discussed. The process and the contract are thoroughly explained – what is covered and what is not – prior to signing. Once the contract has been signed and first deposit received, layout and site preparation begin. Underground utilities are notified (DIG SAFE) and a building permit is pulled. Daigle Pools can assist with permitting if necessary.
Phase 2 – Excavation
After the pool shape and elevations have been set, excavation equipment is brought in to begin digging the pool. Normally this step only takes a day. Sometimes however, the site conditions can cause delays or additional work. There could be ledge that needs to be hammered out or blasted; high water table may require bringing in drainage stone to correct the problem before construction begins. Daigle Pools contractors will always notify the client before proceeding in any work that is beyond the scope of the contract.
Phase 3 – Construction
Once the hole has been dug, we are ready to begin assembling the pool. After the Polymer walls are bolted together and leveled, PVC plumbing lines are placed, and read- mix concrete is brought in to form a sturdy foundation base for the Polymer walls. With the walls securely in place, we shape the bottom of the deep end with a vermiculite and Portland cement mixture. Foam underlayment covers the walls and shallow end floor of the pool before the liner is installed. The final step in the pool construction phase is installing and hooking up the equipment. A licensed electrician brings the power out to the pool filter and heater. The pool is then filled either using a garden hose from the house, or we can provide a pool water delivery if the homes water source is not able to fill the volume of the pool.
Phase 4 – Completion
After testing the pool equipment, the pool is back filled with gravel and grade is brought up to 4” below finish and temporary safety fencing is secured around pool. Depending on the finishing options selected, the pool deck and fencing can be installed – either by our preferred vendors or the client may select their own contractors.
Remember: we don’t just install a pool and disappear!
Daigle Pools is always available to help our clients after their new pool is installed. Most of our clients trust our recommendations year after year. Our greatest satisfaction is in knowing that our clients are truly enjoying their pool.
