Thinking about installing a vinyl liner pool? You’re not alone, they are a fantastic investment and a backyard upgrade that provides years of low maintenance enjoyment. Planning a vinyl liner pool installation project is the very start of a journey that will finally allow your family to enjoy their own backyard swimming pool. Each phase is critical in ensuring that your inground swimming pool is constructed to a high standard and will survive for decades. The following is a step-by-step guide to installing a vinyl inground pool:

Step 1: Obtaining a Building Permit

A building permit must be obtained and posted at the job site before any site work may begin. Permit approval requirements differ depending on the county or city where the pool will be built. As part of the pool purchase deal, Your Backyard Haven will normally offer all necessary work and price payments for obtaining permits. This procedure takes about two weeks on average.

Step 2: Starting Pool Excavation

After the permit has been issued and the utilities have been indicated, the pool excavation can begin. This stage creates the most noticeable alteration in the backyard space since it establishes the foundation for the pool structure that will be built later. The pool bottom is sculpted to suit the exact proportions of the pool’s design while excess dirt for backfill is added around the edge. 1 day is the average amount of time required.

Step 3: Building The Pool Walls

The pool component kit can be delivered to the site once the excavation and pool bottom preparation are finished, and the wall construction can commence. A vinyl pool wall is made up of galvanized steel panels that are bolted together, leveled, and braced to form the pool’s surrounding framework. 1 day is the average amount of time required.

Step 4: Plumbing The Pool

While the pool walls are being built, work is also being done to build all of the underground PVC plumbing required for the pool’s circulation and filtration. An equipment pad is placed near the pool and contains the pool’s pump, filter, and electrical controls at a minimum. Other underground lines may be “roughed in” at this stage, depending on the pool’s features and accessories.

Step 5: Pouring The Concrete Pool Floor

The installers will order a concrete delivery to pour the wall collar after finishing the wall installation, which is usually the same day. The pool’s structural support is provided by the collar, which encases the wall and bracing in a complete subterranean ring of concrete. The shallow end of the pool bottom will be poured at the same time as the collar, using the same 3000 psi concrete mix. Half-day is the average amount of time required.

The focus now shifts to the vinyl pool’s deep end, or hopper. A layer of grout ready-mix is applied to the pool bottom, which is reinforced with wire mesh in important spots. This will provide your vinyl liner pool structure with the additional strength and durability for a long lasting pool installation. Half-day is the average amount of time required.

Step 6: Backfilling & Grading

Dirt is backfilled up to the pool’s wall structure once the pool wall, collar, and plumbing lines are in place. To work surplus dirt into the overall landscaping grade or to account for any changes in drainage in the yard, a rough grade will be done around the whole pool area.

Step 7: Installing Electrical & Pool Equipment

The longest time of anticipation begins now that the pool structure has been built and backfilled. The backfill dirt is not severely compacted by machine to protect the integrity of the pool wall structure. As a result, it’s important to give the earth time to settle naturally, with the help of rain and watering, in order to provide a stable foundation for the pool decking that will be poured over it soon. Your Backyard Haven’s qualified electrician usually completes all electrical work and, if necessary, fence installation during this time. 3 weeks is the average amount of time required.

Step 8: Building a Pool Deck

After enough settling time has passed, preparations for the pool deck begin. The responsibilities needed at this time might vary substantially depending on the deck and coping type, as well as whether any rock work is involved. We are one of the leading installers of paver decking in Toronto and can provide you with a wide array of paver options to choose from when selecting the look and feel of your deck. Our expert installers can create a beautiful deck for a completed and finished pool area.

Step 9: Installing The Pool Liner

The construction project is already nearing completion. The pool bottom is cleaned and prepped completely, and the custom-ordered vinyl liner is installed and fitted.

Step 10: Opening The Pool

Once the pool has been filled with water, a few finishing accessories can be put, and the job site can be cleaned up. Finally, our staff meets with the homeowner to provide them a thorough explanation of the pool’s systems as well as the expectations for future pool maintenance. 4-5 days is the average amount of time required.
