Fiberglass Pool Installation Process
Step 1: Fiberglass Pool Excavation
For accuracy, a design template in the exact size and shape of the pool you purchased will be used to layout the placement of your fiberglass in-ground pool. A dig print is used for the excavation that is specific to your pool’s design and shape. The hole is dug meticulously to avoid the need for back-fill and compacted to prevent unwanted settling.
Step 2: Pool Installation Delivery
Your fiberglass pool arrives at your home on a truck-trailer. Professionals will offload your pool from the trailer and lower it into place in the excavated hole after a compacted bed of gravel is prepared. Guide stakes, string lines, and laser levels will ensure accurate placement and leveling during the in-ground pool installation.
Step 3: Fiberglass Pool Leveling
After placing the pool on the gravel bed, the floor of the pool, the swimming pool installer will inspect it to ensure that there are no voids or humps that were formed during the placement. Water is then added to the pool simultaneously along with backfill. Continuous checking of the levelness of the pool is critical.
Step 4: Fiberglass Pool Plumbing
While water and backfill is being done, the installer will connect the plumbing from the pool to the equipment pad location.
Step 5: Fiberglass Pool Deck Preparation
After water and back-fill have been completed, gravel is prepped for the surrounding pool deck. Typical decking includes concrete or pavers. Final leveling and shape adjustments and bonding are done at this stage.
Step 6: Fiberglass Pool Coping
At this point the concrete decking, pavers or combination of the two are installed around the pool. The installer also will integrate accessories and features such as handrails, ladders, water sheers and deck jets.
Step 7: Time to Enjoy!
Fiberglass Pool Installation Cost
Budgeting the cost of your fiberglass pool is an important consideration. Costs for fiberglass pool installations are dependent on many varying factors, such as your backyard and which package you choose.
Basic fiberglass pool installation packages, which includes things like the shell, shipping, excavation, backfill, pool collar, 3’ of concrete around the pool, pump & filter system, electrical, and filling the pool can start in the $35,000 to $50,000 range. *Note this is contingent on a variety of factors, so please get a quoted price from your local installer
If you’re looking at including pavers along with your basic fiberglass pool installation, this can increase the cost of your project.
Any additional options like saltwater chlorine systems, pool security covers, automatic pool covers, heat pumps, LED pool lighting, security fencing, or automatic cleaning systems will also add to your fiberglass pool installation cost. These are more general costs and meant as a guideline. To get more specific pricing for your project, please contact our team of sales professionals.
