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.
Main drains in above ground swimming pools. Should you install one, or not. We highlyEdwards Pools of Ohio, Main Drain recommend the installation of a main drain for a couple of reasons. Water circulation, and ease of cleaning. We have discussed these aspects in additional articles.
One of the big worries that people have with main drains is settling issues. We hear the stories about the drains that are sticking up a couple inches in the bottom of the pool, from improper installation. That can easily happen if the drain body and piping are not buried in the dirt and tamped in place. You can not use the sand that makes the base for the liner to set on, to install the drain in. If you do the sand will settle down and you will have the drain sticking up. That is what you do not want to happen.
This video shows how we set the drains we install completely down in the ground. We tamp the dirt back in tight around everything so that we have no issues.

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.
