You can never install a fiberglass swimming pool in merely a day. Yet, this is the common promise of many pool contractors. You need to consider the following in installing a fibreglass pool:
- Application for a permit
- Approval of the permit
- The excavation
- Hooking up the electricity
- Plumbing, water filling, back filling of the swimming pool, and setting
- Constructing a form for the concrete
- Pouring the concrete
- Eliminating concrete forms
- Pool cleaning
- Yard cleaning
- Final cleaning of your pool
- Installing of your pool cover.
On TV, yes, it is possible to construct a pool in a day. In real life, it is not. Take not of the labor, paperwork, and inspection before everything falls into place. Here are some of the real-time spans that you need to consider when scheduling your fiberglass pool installation:
- Excavation. This includes digging, backfilling, setting, and forming, which last for about two to three days.
- Grading, cleaning, and covering. This usually takes two to four days.
- Permit security. This depends in the country. Acquiring a permit takes one to ten weeks.
- Form removal and pouring concrete. This takes about two to three days. If it is stamped concrete, it may take longer.
***Please note that the noted timeframe is just the average. It does not include the downtime.
Fiberglass pools can take about two weeks to install. Of course, under the right circumstances, a fiberglass swimming pool can be installed quickly, especially if there is a prefabricated shell delivered straight to your home. You can have the delivery in one day, but the installation process takes a lot longer. The project itself can take longer because of many reasons. Some issued arise during planning. Other surprises become evident during the digging. The weather, the contractor’s schedule, the site itself, the lengthy permit approval, pool size, and inspection are only some of the things you need to understand.
