Want to see the process for how Edwards Pools installs vinyl liner inground pools? Watch this video showing the process from start to finish.
You will see the dig being done to the concrete decking being poured. Couple of things you will notice is how we install sump pits for ground water control, and the electrical work we can do ourselves, not through a sub-contractor.
This pool is a 16′x32′ with grecian corners on the shallow end. We installed Savi Melody LED color changing lights which do not require a wet niche. This also means there is no high voltage electric at the pool, only 12 volt.
Since this pool was finished late in the year, none of the landscaping was finished or grass growing yet. We’ll get the finished pictures once that is all done.
Want a complete backyard makeover? From the simple to the elaborate, Edwards Pools can do it.
We worked with Outdoor FX, a design build firm based in Dublin on this job. We built the pool that included Roman style walk in steps, Pentair Intellibrite LED lights, Superflo pump, Intellichlor salt generator, and Mastertemp electronic ignition heater.
Outdoor FX laid the travertine stone decking, while incorporating fire features and the outdoor kitchen area.
Wondering what type of decking you want around your in ground swimming pool. This video shows the installation of a stamped deck we did around a vinyl liner pool. The stamp pattern is called fractured earth or cracked earth, whichever you prefer.
The standard for decking around an in ground is usually broom finish concrete. A couple of other options is pavers, or a natural stone like travertine. Going with a stamped concrete finish can give you that pop to really finish off your pool project while not breaking the bank. With stamped decking starting at $9 a sq. ft. it is an affordable option to go with.
When customers first start researching an inground pool, they will invariably ask which is better, fiberglass or vinyl liner? Our response is that it is pretty much what you, as the customer, prefers. Each type of inground has pros and cons, which we address on our website.
One potential negative about a vinyl liner pool is that you will have to change the liner at some point during the life of the pool. We find that typically a liner will last about eight years. While that can be a negative, lets look at the other side of the coin. In the video below the owner purchased the home and the pool was in pretty rough shape. While the pool looks rough, by simply changing the liner the pool was well on its way to being an attraction instead of an eye sore! So having the ability to change the liner in this situation was a huge plus. In one day the pool went from unusable to looking like an almost new pool. Watch the video below and see the transformation yourself!
This video shows an inground equipment pad setup using a Hayward ProGrid DE filter. DE filters are the best filter you can buy in terms of how effecient they are. The one drawback is dealing with DE powder when you backwash and or clean the filter.
This system has a 1hp Hayward superpump, a ProGrid 4820 model DE filter, HeatPro heatpump, and Aqu-Rite salt system. You will notice the 3-way union valves we use to control water flow on the suction and return side. We like using the union valves because they can be broken down easily when you close your pool, or need to do some other maintenance.
Sorry about the video quality in advance but I think you can get the idea on what the setup is.
