In-Ground, Concrete-Wall Pool
With the strength of concrete, these 10" thick, steel-reinforced concrete walls form the strongest swimming pool that we offer. Concrete walls are completely non-corrosive, will not rot, and we have been building them for decades with trouble free performance. Available in a variety of both shapes and rectangles, they also present some unique options like stair entries that are 20 feet wide or more. Once the concrete forms are stripped away, all our concrete wall pools receive a specially designed closed cell wall material that protects the liner from abrasion while giving the pool interior a luxurious feel to the touch.
See our Gallery of Concrete-Wall Pools
Our brand of vinyl surface from Vyn-All is specifically formulated for maximum stain and scale resistance. Unlike other surfaces, like plaster that are rough to the touch, prone to scaling and staining, and often require careful attention and brushing, the Vyn-All surface is low-maintenance and highly durable, so you spend less time maintaining your pool and more time enjoying it.
Installation Sequence for a Concrete In-ground Pool
1 -- All Formed
Here, the forms are set and ready to pour the 10-inch thick reinforced concrete walls.
2 -- Pouring Concrete
Concrete mixture is seen flowing into the forms. Walls are reinforced with 1/2-inch steel
rebar. No vinyl liner pool comes close in strength and durability.
3 -- Foam Underlayment Goes On Walls
After forms are stripped away, the interior of the wall is covered with pool wall foam
to produce a comfortable 'feel' and to protect the liner from abrasion. The vermiculite/concrete
bottom is being installed here.
4 -- Hand Working the Bottom
Final troweling of the vermiculite bottom in the deep end.
5 -- Hand Troweling the Floor
Troweling the shallow end floor.
6 -- Footing for Diving Board
A solid concrete diving board footing to undisturbed earth ensures the diving stand
and board will never shift or move.
7 -- Vinyl Liner Installed
Concrete receptor coping is already installed in this photo and the vinyl liner is hung
into the coping track.
8 -- Liner Installation Finished
Finishing the installation of the liner into the receptor track.
9 -- Main Drain Plate Installed
With commercial vacuums pulling the liner smooth against the wall and floor, the main
drain faceplate is installed.
10 -- Side Wall Light Fixture
Final touches are put on the installation of the side wall light.
11 -- Fill It Up!
With the vacuums continuously holding the liner snug, this photo shows the pool being
filled with water.
