What is a large project that you’ve completed at work and couldn’t wait to tell your coworkers about? Was it something challenging that pushed you to a new limit that you didn’t know existed? Or was it something that excited and interested you? At Fiberglass Pool Guyz, we encounter circumstances that challenge and excite us all of the time! In fact, most of our fiberglass swimming pool installations involve an element of problem solving that is outside of the box for most pool builders.
The unique fact about our products is that they are manufactured by San Juan Pools in their factory in Florida. That means that our products have to travel across country to arrive at your job site on the same date as our crane & installation crew. There is a lot of moving pieces related to installing fiberglass swimming pools and it often seems like magic when it all comes together. To see the crane roll up, off load and lift the fiberglass pool right over a home and set it into a freshly dug backyard is definitely an art form!
Our realm of swimming pool construction is a bit like balancing the scales to ensure that our teams are in place on specific dates to successfully install our fiberglass pools and spas. It’s a challenge and it’s certainly always exciting! Just seeing the faces of neighbors and onlookers as they witness a gigantic swimming pool hoisted over the top of houses and placed right into an expectant backyard – there isn’t anything quite like the experience. To witness one of our swimming pools installed is a unique front row seat to something exceptional – but we do that type of work everyday!
Phase #1: The Luxor Deep & Lido Spa – Flower Mound, TX
We recently took on a new project in Flower Mound, TX. Positioned directly next to a busy road, our crews coordinated the shipment of not just a deep end fiberglass pool but also a spa. These two products arrived on the same trailer and our installation crews had to prepare and excavate for both shells to be installed at the same time. To say that this project was complex is an understatement. Luckily the backyard was huge so that provided our teams lots of room to operate!
To complete the installation, our crews utilized a 150′ boom crane to lift both shells right over this beautiful home. As you can see from these images, the proximity of the street to this home meant that we had to lift the loads high in order to land the two shells in the proper spot. This type of lifting is only done by the experts and we’ve been on site at hundreds of installations to ensure that this is done both accurately and safely.
Once positioned in the backyard, our crews resumed their normal duties to install these two shells for our excited home owner. Like all installations, once these shells are placed in the excavated hole, our job is to fill with water while equally filling the negative side with back-fill material. We carefully maintain equal pressure on both the positive and negative sides of the fiberglass shell – to prevent undue stress on either size during fill up.

The Luxor Deep looks gorgeous online and even more beautiful in person. Constructed to provide our clients with a large amount of swimming room – this rectangular swimming pools weighs in a 3,400 pounds and holds 22,000 gallons of water!

Bust out those diving rings and go searching among the depths to see how many you can collect.

The Lido Spa – A Symmetrical Spa to Compliment the Luxor Deep
For this installation, our client selected the Lido Spa – a square spa with symmetrical dimensions. Designed with a corner entry step, the Lido Spa is roomy for it’s users and minimizes the space required for entry and exit.
Designed with squared sides, this spa easily compliments our rectangular swimming pool options! If you’re worried about the space required to pair this spa with a pool choice of your own – don’t!
