If you are ready to install an in-ground pool into your backyard that your whole family can enjoy, there are certain things that you need to keep in mind so that you are prepared for what is to come during the actual installation process of your pool, as well as what you need to do before the pool is installed and after the project has been completed.
Get a Permit
You will more than likely need to purchase a building permit in order to have an in-ground pool installed in your backyard. Visit your township’s office to determine the costs of the permit. Then you will need to wait for your permit to be given to you before you can go ahead and have the workers come in and install your swimming pool.
Hire a Reputable Company
You should really do your research into in-ground pool companies that will install your new pool at a great rate and using the right equipment and techniques. If you simply hire the first company you find, you may be disappointed by the way that they conduct business. Also, if you can, find pool installation companies by using referrals from trusted friends and family who have had in-ground pools installed successfully.
Be Prepared for Big Trucks, a Mess, and a Lot of Noise
During the installation of your in-ground pool, you should be prepared to make room for some very large trucks and machinery that will get to work digging up your lawn, leveling it out properly, and installing the materials for your permanent in-ground pool. These trucks and machines can be extremely loud, but you will just have to bear with it. They will rip up your lawn and throw dirt everywhere, but you will have to just deal with the mess until they are completely done.
The whole construction process can take anywhere from a couple of weeks to over a month, especially if a township representative comes in to inspect the construction process and if there are delays due to inclement weather. So, again, be prepared for the potential for delays and just be patient while the crew works, no matter how noisy or messy they may be.
Repair Your Lawn After the Pool is Complete
Even though your in-ground pool has been successfully installed, your work is not over just yet. Now you need to finish cleaning up the mess they have left behind by repairing your lawn. You will need to level out the area and put down new grass seeds in order to let it grow back quickly and beautify your space again. This is a small price to pay, though, for having the added value of an in-ground pool in your yard.
Installing an in-ground pool can be an exciting experience, especially if you have been saving up and waiting a long time to get the job done. However, it can also be a stressful experience, especially if the crew encounters delays, so it is important to stay level-headed and be prepared for the challenges that may lie ahead.
