step 2: EXCAVATE

A professional excavation service digs a hole for the pool, based on the dimensions of the pool shell.

step 3: prepare the base

Create a base for the pool to sit on, such as compacted sand or gravel, to provide a level and stable foundation.


The fiberglass pool shell is placed into the excavated area. Temporary supports or braces are used to hold the shell in place while backfilling around the edges with gravel or sand. The level of the pool shell is continuously assessed to ensure it remains level.

step 5: plumbing & electrical

Required plumbing and electrical components are installed, such as the filter, pump, and lighting, according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

step 6: pool deck

The deck area around the pool is created to provide a stable and attractive surface for walking and lounging. Consider adding decorative touches such as stamped or stained concrete to enhance the appearance.

step 7: fill the pool

Fill the pool with water and ensure that all systems are functioning properly. Balance the water chemistry and add any necessary chemicals to maintain proper water quality.

step 8: landscaping

Finish off the area in your backyard with landscaping, such as plants, flowers, or trees, and add any desired finishing touches such as fencing, pool furniture, or outdoor lighting.

step 9: enjoy!

Once the installation is complete and the pool is filled with water, it’s time to enjoy your new fiberglass pool! Follow proper maintenance procedures to ensure that your pool stays in top condition for years to come.
