What is the process of installing a fiberglass pool?

Our innovative advanced method of construction was created specifically to avoid all of the most frequent issues that arise during the construction of fiberglass pools. We can guarantee that there won’t be any separation, bulging, shifting, or leaking with your new fiberglass pool.

A fiberglass pool may be built in just 3 to 6 weeks, and the advantage with a fiberglass pool is that you can start swimming in it on the second day!

The steps we take to install your pool are as follows:

  • Digging up the ground
  • Pool placement and leveling
  • Installing the plumbing and filtration for the pool
  • Backfilling the pool shell
  • Setting up the patio and coping
  • Installing the pool fence


  1. Removing the soil

Using a laser level, we determine the height at which the pool should be placed in the yard after painting the pool on the ground. This will help us determine how deep we should excavate. The other team members of Nachman Pool Company start to set up the pump and filtration system as one digs the hole.

Depending on a variety of factors such as the size of the hole and how long it’s going to take to remove the soil, this process often takes three to two and a half hours.

  1. Positioning and leveling the pool

We fill the pit that the pool will sit in with a 2-inch-thick layer of gravel. The height of the pool is decided by this gravel base.

Depending on the project, this part of the project is typically finished by the end of day one or day two.

  1. Constructing the plumbing and filtration system for the pool

Before inserting the pool shell into the hole, we run the whole plumbing around the pool. As a result, we have greater space to work and can fully visually examine each fitting and piece of pipe to make sure they adhere to our standards and expectations.

Normally, we start this procedure as soon as the pool is taken out of the truck to your backyard.


  1. Backfilling the pool shell

By the end of the second or third day, Nachman Pool Company crew typically has the pool shell installed, filled with water, and all of the piping finished.

After this very moment, you are able to dip in your pool and start to enjoy it with your family and loved ones.

  1. Constructing the patio and coping

Before putting in the patio and coping, we do a thorough check of the fiberglass pool to see everything is working properly.

The time it takes to backfill the pool, build the coping, and install the patio can vary depending on the weather and our schedule, but it usually takes one to two weeks.

Depending on the size of the patio and the type of material chosen, installing the patio can take two to six days.

  1. Installing the fence of the pool

Any in-ground pool must have a fence that complies with the requirements for security.
