Vinyl Pool Construction Process

Premier Charlotte Vinyl Pool Builder

The pool construction process can be daunting if you don’t what to expect.  The pool professionals at Edgewater Pools, LLC walk you through the vinyl pool construction process from start to finish.

STEEL WALL INSTALLATION


STEP 1

  • A precise excavation is required with a ledge to support the pool panels
  • Panels are positioned and loosely fastened together
  • Dimensions are checked to ensure the pool perimeter is constructed to specification
Step 2 Steel-Wall-insulation-5-150x150

STEP 2

  • The tops of the panels are checked to ensure the pool is level
  • A-Frames and deck supports are installed to ensure long term stability
  • MEGNA offers a wide variety of supports to meet the needs of individual pool contractors
Step 3

STEP 3

  • When all dimensions meet specifications the panels are tightened into place
  • Concrete is poured at the base of the pool panels around the perimeter and at the end of a-frames, to ensure stability
step 4

STEP 4

  • Aluminum or PVC coping or liner track is installed around the perimeter of the pool
  • Coping provides a track into which the liner will later be installed, as well as a finished edge for the concrete pool decking when it is installed
step 5

STEP 5

  • A cement hard bottom is installed and trowelled smooth
  • In place of the recommended cement bottom, a packed sand bottom can be used, however for longevity, cement is preferred.

 

 

STEP 6

  • The over dug perimeter of the pool is then carefully back filled with clean fill dirt
  • The surface is prepared for either a poured concrete deck or for the installation of paving stones

VINYL LINER INSTALLATION


Vinyl Liner Installation Step 1

STEP 1

  • The vinyl liner is unfolded from the shallow end to the deep end of the pool and the bead is clipped into the liner track
  • Once adjusted into place the liner is vacuumed into place to ensure a wrinkle free fit
Vinyl Liner Installation step 2

STEP 2

  • The vacuum remains in use until the pool is half-filled with water, this ensures that the liner does not shift in place
