The Swimming Pool Installation Guide

A complete guide to what to expect when you are expecting… a pool!

A comprehensive guide on the process of building a swimming pool and what you should expect.

Buying a pool is an investment, so we have written this guide to help you understand the process.

This document covers building a pool and how we minimise disruption to get your pool built in as little time as possible. It will also explain areas where you or an external contractor would need to be involved in the process and what needs to be done.

With this guide, you’ll learn:

  • The approximate timescales each major task will take
  • What we do with the soil we excavate
  • The planning application process
  • What vehicles you can expect to arrive
  • What problems can be encountered (and what we do about them)
  • Temporary removal of fences and other obstacles

…and a lot more.
