How to Install a Swimming Pool
Things You’ll Need:
- Inground pool kit
- Ready-to-mix cement
- Research building codes in your area. Apply for building permits before you break ground. Building codes vary by county, so check with your local building inspectors office or county courthouse.
- Choose a location. Pick a level spot that gets plenty of sun.Take into account how much space you want around the pool for decking, a patio or other recreational area.
- Dig out the shape of the pool. You may want to rent a backhoe or hire someone to do this step. Dig to the desired depth and diameter. Decide if you want to pay to have the dirt hauled away or if there is somewhere else you can use it.
- Install panels around the sides or outer edge of the hole. Each pool kit comes with panels that need to be assembled in place. At this time, you also install the steps and skimmer and any other framework pieces included in your kit. Make sure the frame is level.
- Brace the wall with the braces in the kit. The kit will provide specific instructions. Pour concrete into each base that is formed by the braces. This gives the pool extra strength.
- Move the dirt away from the side panels of the pool. The ground should be about 2 feet lower than the panels.
- Create a smooth floor. Using a trowel and a thin coat of concrete, smooth out a floor for the bottom of the pool.
- Install the pool liner. Make sure the liner is as taut and smooth as possible by using a brush to slowly smooth down the liner as you lay it.
- Connect any systems that your pool will have, including electrical, plumbing and filter.
- Fill the pool with water from a garden hose.
- Let the dirt around the pool settle for a few weeks before pouring cement for decking around the pool.
