Fiberglass Pool Installation
Summary of Our Technical Installation
As we mentioned last week, we are now selling Fiberglass Swimming Pools by the brand: Imagine Pools. These fiberglass pools are the best in the industry and provide superior quality to any other fiberglass product that you’ll find on today’s marketplace.
Bringing us to this article, we are hard at work this week installing a new Fiberglass Swimming Pool with an Automated Pool Cover. This is a technical installation that requires advanced “know how” to install properly. As you can see from the above image, we have completed the following tasks:
- Set our fiberglass pool Semi-Inground
- Installed our Polybox – which will house our pool cover
- Run our Plumbing Lines (parallel with equal distance between lines)
- Installed our Concrete Forms (shown as white foam on top of pool edge – more on this later…)
Automated Pool Cover
This sounds a bit advanced, and it definitely is. Setting any swimming pool semi-inground is difficult due to potential settling that can occur once the pool is set. We always back-fill our fiberglass pools with sand or pea gravel to allow for proper drainage of water behind our pool shell. Now that our pool is set, we are able to move on to stage two: preparing for our Automated Pool Cover.
Automated Pool Covers are very handy instruments that allow you to cover your pool with the click of a button. This is extremely beneficial in Fall and Winter months during periods of periodic or zero use. The primary function of these covers is to keep the leaves and other debris out of your swimming pool during periods of non-use.
To prepare our pool deck to conceal our pool cover (when in the open position), we install a Polybox. This black box (seen in the image below) hides our pool cover when it’s rolled up. We install this unit before pouring our concrete deck. This coincides with the time frame that we also install our plumbing and electrical lines (so that everything is concealed below deck).
Running Our Plumbing Lines
Not only do we see Kristie installing our Polybox, we see her hard at work running our plumbing lines from start to finish. The key to any successful pool installation is tools, attention to detail & hard work. Kristie is seen here following the proper plumbing guidelines:
- Even spacing between plumbing lines
- Setting the lines side by side (using an open trench) rather than stacking the lines and saving cost
- Measuring and cutting each line in 90 degree angles
- Applying both Cleaner (primer) & Quick Drying Glue
Not all plumbers are created equal. Some are fast and lack attention to detail. Other’s (like Kristie) emphasize precision and accuracy. She believes that the plumbing must be done accurately and understands the benefit it provides to her customers.
That being said, Kristie wants to build a swimming pool that is long lasting and functions as it’s intended to! The best plumbers turn a simple task into an art form and we can see how great a proper plumbing install looks from Kristie’s example here!
