Before you make any final decisions to have Aqua Fun install a pool for you, we will review in detail everything that’s included with a base pool. But for now, here is an overview to help give you an idea of what’s involved…
We will walk through your backyard with you to hear your ideas on size, shape, function, features, and landscaping and make recommendations based on our experience. We will then complete the to-scale CAD and engineering drawings and sit down with you to review them to ensure they depict what you want from your pool.
Once you are happy with the design, we get the permits for the construction, plumbing, and electrical work so you don’t have to worry about them.
Our backhoe comes in and digs the hole and the plumbing and electrical trenches to the engineered specifications. Now it’s 30 days until you’re swimming!
We set up steel walls around the edge of the hole, then pour concrete for the floor and coat it with vermiculite. We hang the liner from coping at the top of the steel wall and use a vacuum to ensure the liner fits the vessel with no wrinkles. Then it’s time to fill the pool.
Plumbing, Electrical, Filtration, and Decking
We run the plumbing and electrical to the equipment pad and install the filtration equipment. After our work passes code inspection, we backfill the filter trench and pool area with pea gravel, then pour the concrete deck.
We typically finish the dirt around the pool or decking with a rough grade, which will still need preparation before it is ready for grass seed. We do work with landscaping contractors and, at this point in the process, would be happy to provide you with a quote to complete the landscaping.
We will teach our Aqua Fun Pool School, which is a tutorial on caring for your new pool. We will also give you detailed product manuals, warranty cards, and complete install drawings for your reference and records.
Aqua Fun Water Management System
In an Aqua Fun pool, you also get the Aqua Fun Water Management System, which is designed to cut down on your pool cleaning time.
A standard pool’s circulation system includes a skimmer (to skim off insects and other floating debris) and a floor drain that pulls water into the filtration system and back out into the pool through two returns. This circulates about 62% of the water when the pool is not being used.
The Aqua Fun Water Management System uses six sidewall jets and multiple in-floor pop-up jets to circulate 100% of the water when the pool is not being used, distributing chlorine and heat throughout the entire pool. This beefed up circulation system also pushes dirt into just a few places throughout the pool to make vacuum cleaning a breeze – it takes only about 15 minutes a week to clean your pool rather than a few hours – and it saves money on water treatment.
