Installation process

 

The installation of an inground swimming pool has several phases, and we want you to be aware of the process every step of the way.  Transforming your ordinary backyard into a beautiful oasis will yield a lifetime of enjoyment for your family and friends and provide an area to meet, eat, socialize, and relax.  Lets get started.



After meeting with your Premier Pools sales representative and signing a swimming pool installation contract, our expediter will begin the process of obtaining the necessary permits required by your municipality.  If your lot is equipped with a private well and septic, a PSE or preliminary site evaluation may be required in addition to the permits. Once the necessary permits are obtained, Premier Pools will begin installing your dream oasis.



 

Step 1

 

Layout and excavation



Premier Pools will notify you in advance of our planned excavation date.  If there are any trees, shrubs, or hardscape that need to be removed or relocated we will discuss the process in advance to your dig date.  It can be a little overwhelming at first breaking ground as we are sure to make a controlled mess in your yard, but the finish product will be worth it.

  1. Steel structure and bonding

 

Now that excavation is complete, the steel structure will be erected.  The pool is leveled and squared, and all support braces will be installed to tie the shell together in preparation for the concrete collar.  You will now begin seeing your pool take shape.  The electrician will then attach a bonding wire around the perimeter of the pool which will lead back through the plumbing trench and to the equipment pad.  This wire will keep all metal components at the same potential to eliminate the risk of stray voltage from entering the pool.  A properly bonded pool is paramount to prevent electrocution and damage to the structure from electrolysis.

  1.  Grading, wall foam insulation, and rough plumbing

 

Now that the collar and equipment pad are completed, the installers will rough grade the pool floor and walls using a clear stone or TB material.  The stone is then compacted to reduce the risk of settling.  The plumbing lines and plumbing ports are roughed in and a layer of foam insulation is applied to the steel walls to create a soft buffer between the steel and the liner.

  1. Liner installation

 

Once the floor of the pool has been finished, the bead receiver or aluminum coping will be fastened to top of the pool wall and the liner will be installed.  After the liner is hung in the pool, a industrial vacuum is used to remove the air from behind the vinyl and draw it in tight.  After this process is completed, the pool is filled with water and chemically treated.

  1. Backfilling and finish plumbing

 

After the pool is filled, the backfilling and finish plumbing process begins.  Backfilling is the process of filling the remaining void left from the pool excavation and areas that were dug out for concrete placement.  The finish plumbing involves placing and connecting the mechanicals that are required to operate the pool.  The electrician will be notified and will come out to complete the electrical hookup to your pump, heater, lighting, and automation panel.   A Premier Pools service advisor will program the panel and turn on the pool pump to begin the circulation and filtration required to maintain the water.

  1.  Concrete

 

Now that the pool installation is complete, it is time to begin the concrete forming and pouring.  The concrete crew will form the pool deck , install a wire mesh grid and rebar(where needed), and pour and finish the pool walkway and surrounding areas.

  1.  Final grading, fence, and landscaping

 

This is the final phase of the pool construction process.  The pool fence will be installed and upon completion, your landscape contractor can do the final grading, hardscape, fabric and stone, and plantings.  A final inspection is required in most municipalities and once completed, you may begin enjoying your new inground pool!
