The Ins & Outs of Building a Durable Fiberglass Pools

Swimming PoolIf you ask most homeowners in Perth who want a swimming pool what the process of getting the right pool includes, they are likely only to tell you that it involves much ground digging and filling the hole with water. While that is true, installing a durable fibreglass pool is a slightly different process, which, typically, takes the following steps:

Land Preparation

You need to get the right permits to put up a pool in your property. A property search will also reveal any utilities in the area you intend to put up your project. The contractor will then outline the pool's dimensions before the digging process starts.

Excavation and Pool Placement

An excavator handles the digging process while following the pool’s outline to provide the pool with an exact fit. A crane then sets the pre-moulded fibreglass pool once the hole meets the pool requirements, which is where these differ with the construction of traditional swimming pools. You may need sump lines on one end of your pool to balance hydrostatic pressure in the pool.

Water Addition

The pool contractor places sand on the pool's base before going ahead to fill the pool with water. He/she alternates water and sand until there is even pressure on both the outside and inside of the fibreglass structure until you get to the level at which you plan to place the deck.

Installation of Plumbing Parts and Electrical Parts

Installing electrical connections, heaters, pumps and filters, comes in towards the end of the fibreglass pool building process. Installing these elements, though, does not take long to complete.

Concrete Placement

Once the contractor gets to this stage, the deck will start to form. He/she, however, will have to wait for the concrete to set. In the meantime, the team focuses on clearing your area.

Understanding what you should expect in building a swimming pool helps you to prepare psychologically and financially for the entire process. If you have the right builder in Perth, they will explain the significance of each step to you, as the homeowner, and deliver a functional and highly durable pool at the end of the project.
