After the winter we’ve had, we need a light at the end of this cold tunnel to look forward to. Summertime is that light, and there’s no better way to celebrate than by enhancing your home with a pool.
Treating yourself to spectacular memories to help you make your way through the next winter season is ideal, but pool instillation isn’t an easy task.
Any pool expert will tell you that step one to a successful install is simple: Contact the experts! Without the experience or know-how of professional pool technicians, it’s nearly impossible to get a high quality design or installation. However if you’re still curious as to how deep-end pools are installed, here are some tips on how in-ground pools are installed and maintained.
Installing a pool is a big decision and takes a lot of planning before the operation even begins.
First, you need to decide on the area that you’re going to have your pool installed. Will it be round, rectangular, or kidney shaped? Then, you need to decide on the details on what’s going in your pool. Will you have a diving board? How many ladders would you like? Make all your choices before attacking the backyard because you may limit your choices once the work has already begun.
Next, we move on to the action-packed part: the installation process. Keep in mind that installing a pool takes about two weeks minimum from start to finish – you need to start with the excavation by digging a large pit in your backyard, erect the frame, and prepare the base before doing anything else.
When all the measurements have been carefully completed and double-checked, the concrete can be poured evenly over the base. This takes time to sit and let dry.
Finally, you can install the vinyl liner. Getting a pool installed just in time for summer is an appealing idea, but if you’re looking to save a bit of money, try scheduling the installation for later in the season when there is less competition and you’re more likely to get a good deal on labour.
The third, and most important, step in the process is to make sure that the pool is well maintained. A pool that is well taken care of can provide nearly 25 years of summertime family fun. The two most important aspects you need to look at are cleaning our debris from the pool and purifying the water.
Today, we have automatic cleaners and water purifiers that are easily installed to make your job much easier. During the summer you’ll have to regularly check the water’s temperature, pH levels, and chlorine levels and adjust accordingly. Investing in a vacuum for your pool is also a great idea and will make cleaning the floor of your pool an easy breeze.
Follow these steps and you’re sure to have an easier time taking care of the pool that has been installed! Find a trusted and professional pool installation company and you’ll be able to to sit back, relax, and enjoy your time in the sun beside your deep end pool this summer.
Don’t hesitate to put in a bit of extra in the beginning stages to make sure you have this pool around for years to come. Winter won’t be so bad when you know you have an awesome pool to look forward to!
