At Fiberglass Pool Guyz we are passionate about what we do – in fact, some people may say we are a little crazy about fiberglass. We believe that having fun and enjoying what you do is critical to your performance at work and in life. In our case, having fun allows us to create exceptional backyard experiences that we tailor to you and your lifestyle.
Posting articles of our favorite pools provides great insight into what we do here everyday at Fiberglass Pool Guyz. For today’s article we thought it would be fun to take a look at how we install a fiberglass pool. Ready to dive in? So are we!
Order Up! One Oceanside Fiberglass Pool Model
Welcome to the Oceanside Fiberglass Pool Model! This pool is filled with some simplistic design concepts. All that really means is: it’s a blank canvas ready for some imagination!
Imagine with us for a moment:
You’re getting home from long day at the office. It’s hot outside. All you can think of at the moment is rushing to get your swim suit. You then open up your backdoor and cannonball into the cool resting waters of your gorgeous Oceanside pool! Then you look up to discover the margarita stand nearby…
Ah hem… excuse us, we tend to get carried away by the thought of summer. Now where were we?
Alas, this pool is designed simply with the intention of you making it your own. It’s long shape and consistent depth provides the perfect venue for playing volleyball and basketball with the kids. It’s also perfect for the athlete who desires some laps after a long day at the office. Did we mention it can fit some flotation devices? Well believe us, it’ll hold several large floating flamingos (you can thank Target for those)!
Now Let’s Get Down and Dirty
Enough persuasion about how awesome this pool is. We did, after all, mention our construction and delivery process. Let’s get back to it.
Our fiberglass shells are manufactured using 5 hand-laid layers of fiberglass material. In areas of high-stress we can put as many as 15 layers of fiberglass!
These fiberglass layers are constructed of two components: a 1-1/2 oz. mat & 24 oz. heavy-woven roving which are placed in alternate layers. Many fiberglass manufacturers will install fillers in their shells to cut costs. Not San Juan shells!
- Expansive Soils
- Freezing Temperatures
After setting the layers of fiberglass, our shells continue to prime in our stocking yard until the day of their choosing. It’s like a litter of puppies – our shells are excited to leave their yard to come home and provide you with years of play and outdoor fun!
From Delivery to Installation
From the point that you select your perfect fiberglass shell, we provide you with an estimated time of arrival (we prefer to call it an Estimated Time of Awesome). Rest assured, we are in contact with our manufacturer throughout the whole purchase order process and you will be updated on the ETA of your pool.
Once we receive notification that your shell has shipped we prep your backyard for its arrival. This stage includes:
- Excavating the earth for the fiberglass shell
- Prepping the job site for Plumbing & Electrical
- Arrival of your Equipment and Accessory Items
The moment your pool arrives we use a special crane to lift, lower and set your pool in its new home: your backyard.
Next we complete the leveling, back-filling and installation of your pool. This entire process takes only 2-3 days. At that point we leave you to your new outdoor oasis. Unless of course you purchase some stamped & stained concrete (which we hope you do!).
You’re Now a Proud New Pool Parent
At that point you are now the proud parent of a new fiberglass swimming pool. Be sure to take a moment to soak in this glorious moment and waive at your next door neighbors. Unfortunately, they’ll be waiting another 3-6 months for their gunite swimming pool to be installed. Don’t be rude though, you can invite them to your open house for your new pool party!
Not only are we faster at installing a brand new swimming pool, we can also help save you money! Read this article to find out how!
