Your Swimming Pool Construction Questions Answered

Questions and answers about fibreglass swimming pools

Deciding to install a swimming pool in your home is an exciting time. They are the perfect addition to your backyard for summer and can provide hours of enjoyment for you and your family. However, when it comes to installing a swimming pool in your home, the process can seem a little overwhelming at first. After finally choosing a pool that suits your home, budget and preferred style, it’s time to tackle the construction phase. To help make the whole process a little easier and less stressful, today we’re going to be answering some of the most commonly asked questions about pool installation.

What Exactly Is The Swimming Pool Installation Process?

The installation process can vary depending on the type of pool and yard you have. When it comes to inground pools there are three types you can choose from; fibreglass, concrete, or vinyl. Here at Factory Pools Perth, we specialise in fibreglass swimming pools, which are usually transported to your house in one piece. First, the shape of your pool is pegged out in the ground and then excavated. A base material is then placed in the bottom of the hole for the shell to sit on top of (if required). Once the shell is placed in the ground and leveled, sand is backfilled around the outside of the pool.

How Long Does Constructing a Swimming Pool Usually Take?

Again, this can vary depending on the type of pool and backyard you have. For a fibreglass pool one of the big advantages is the quick installation time. Construction of a fibreglass pool will usually only take around 7-10 to complete.

What Are Some Common Swimming Pool Construction Problems?

Though fibreglass pools are sturdy and rarely encounter issues, swimming pool installation problems can be grouped into two main categories; leakage problems and structural problems. In terms of leaks, these can occur around the pool’s plumbing or around any fittings, like return jets or skimmers. For structural issues, there is the potential for your pool’s fibreglass shell to crack or shift if it is not installed correctly by a reputable provider. There are also potential problems that could arise if you don’t choose the right company to build and install your swimming pool, including completion delays and even damage to sewer and water mains.

How Do I Find A Reputable Swimming Pool Provider?

Making the decision about who is going to install your fibreglass swimming pool is of the utmost importance. When choosing a builder, ask them questions such as how many pools have you built? Do you offer a completion guarantee? Am I able to inspect a pool you’ve built in a suburb nearby to me? At Factory Pools Perth, we have experienced and reputable professionals who guarantee to safely and properly install your pool. We also provide the best value for money when it comes to fibreglass pools in Perth, which are all built at our brand-new factory. You can even come along and see them being built for yourself.
