In-Ground, Steel-Wall Pool

1 -- Digging the Hole

Once the finished pool location is determined, we can actually machine dig the hole fairly close to the finished dimensions we need.

2 -- Assembling Stairs

Here the wall shelf and hopper have been dug and we are just starting to assemble the steel stair components.

3 -- Steel Walls In Place

This photo shows all the galvanized steel walls and stairs assembled and leveled.

4 -- Stabilizing the Base

We use a machine compactor to thoroughly tamp the slope and floor areas, both for steel wall and for concrete wall pools. This provides a stable base for our vermiculite/concrete bottom.

5 -- Dual Main Drains -- Set in Concrete

We use two main drains to provide dual suction on hopper pools. And we set them in a solid concrete floor at the bottom of the hopper.

6 -- Plumbing Lying on Smooth Concrete

Detail of plumbing lying on top of the smooth concrete bond beam. We plumb all our in-ground pools with the best materials and with time proven techniques. It takes some extra effort, but we feel it's worth it.

7 -- Coping Installed

In this photo, the white receptor coping is installed on top of the steel walls and troweling of the concrete/vermiculite bottom is nearly complete.

8 -- PVC Plumbing

We take the extra time to use all rigid PVC plumbing because our experience has shown us it's the most durable, trouble-free, insect resistant material available for pool plumbing.

11 -- Ready for water

Another view of the pool ready for water and backfilling.

9 -- Solid Concrete Pad for Pump/Filter

We provide a substantial concrete equipment pad, both on our steel wall and concrete wall pools, to prevent any movement or shifting and to ensure the integrity of the plumbing through the winter heave and thaw.

10 -- Pool Liner is set.

With it's liner drawn tightly by vacuum, the concrete bond beam set and plumbing completed, this pool is ready for water and backfilling.
