Pool Installation

Everything you need to know about Pool Installation

Now that you’re considering one of our premium pools for your space, you’re going to need to better understand the process behind installing your pool. When it comes to easy pool installation there is no better option than fibreglass – this is what makes our pools the best solution for almost every application.

The first step in any installation process is to assess the landscape where the pool is being installed. This must be done to both measure the area and ascertain what kind of permits and resource consent documents may be required for the project.

Once the area is mapped out and ready to go, the next step towards installing your dream pool is the excavation. Specifically formulated based on the pool you opt for, our installation team will have a 3D layout of the pool to ensure that they excavate to the required measurements of the fibreglass shell. Using the dig sheet provided, the installer will check how deep the excavation should be, allowing for the progressive pool depths and features.

Once the excavation is complete, we must apply a bed of gravel that will provide a base for the fibreglass pool shell to rest on. To ensure we get a smooth, level grading when we install the pool we use ‘Screed Bars’ to mould the contours of gravel, creating a slope consistent with the shape of the pool.

One of the things that our assessors will look for when they come to your site for a consultation, is the ease of access for a crane to be able to lower your pool without obstruction. When your pool has been lowered into the excavated site, we then will double-check all areas to make sure it is completely level, before beginning to backfill.

Understanding the Various Types of Pool Installation

Considering all your options is always the best idea when choosing to invest in a swimming pool. Knowing what other types of pools are available and why fibreglass is superior is essential. There are 3 main types of pools available to create your dream oasis:

  • Concrete Swimming Pools
  • Vinyl Liner Pools
  • Fibreglass Composite Pools

Concrete Swimming Pools

A perfect option for people looking for a completely custom swimming pool, concrete pools provide the most freedom when it comes to creating a design that suits you and your family.
While being a great option to customise your space, there are some big downsides to choosing a concrete pool. The most obvious downside to a concrete pool is the increased risk of injury and decreased amount of safety features. While fibreglass shell pools offer some degree of flex, concrete pools are solid; this means that if you are to fall or slip the impact is a lot harder, and this is one of the biggest reasons why people opt for fibreglass when looking for a family pool.

Concrete swimming pools tend to be a far more costly investment due to the need to create a fully custom pool. The process of creating a concrete pool is a lengthy, complicated one; after excavating the shape of the pool, the edges and frame of the pool are then reinforced with steel and sprayed with concrete. While being a strong, durable option, concrete swimming pools are a costly investment that require a lot of effort to install and maintain.

Vinyl Liner Pools

So concrete pools might not be the best option for you. That’s not to say your only other option is a fibreglass pool. A vinyl lined pool is a good option for people looking for an affordable, cost-effective solution.

A vinyl lined pool offers an affordable option for people wanting their dream outdoor space on a tight budget. To install a vinyl pool is a lengthy process. First, a hole must be excavated to the desired pool dimensions and specifications. Once this has been completed the next step is to pour concrete to create a base for the liner and a beam around the edge of the pool. After your pool has been plumbed, and the necessary drainage added, we then backfill the edges before installing the vinyl lining itself. When the lining has been installed there is still a lengthy process involved before your new pool is finished ready for you to enjoy.

The lengthy process of installing a vinyl liner pool is only one of the drawbacks. Possibly the biggest factor to consider when choosing what style of pool best suits you is the longevity of your pool. By using a thin vinyl liner you run the risk of your new pool being damaged easily – vinyl lined pool’s biggest problem is the fact that over time the liners deteriorate and become weaker which can make them susceptible to damage. With this type of pool, the amount of maintenance required is much higher as well, as the need to replace the liner every 3-4 years is recommended.

All of these factors are important to consider when selecting your pool design.
