What process does a swimming pool construction take?

The decision to have an inbound swimming pool in your backyard is not an easy one as it requires financial outlay and a lot of planning. If you are looking to have a compact designed pool for your relaxation and convenience in Dubai, there are certain things you need to know about swimming pool construction. Below are some vital information you should be aware of when constructing a swimming pool in Dubai.

What process does a swimming pool construction take?

Generally, pool construction takes a similar pattern, although they may be slightly different depending on their design.  In essence, it all boils down to the type of swimming pool. Generally, there are 3 major types of inbound swimming pools: vinyl liner, concrete, and fiberglass. Each of these construction methods has its own benefits and shortfalls.

 Fiberglass construction

These are designed in 2 stages: manufacturing and installation. The fiber-glass shell used in the design is designed from mold before it is brought to the site. When it arrives on the site, it is then brought down and fixed on the ground with a crane.   Other things are done both on the inside and outside of the fiberglass to make it look more like a swimming pool. After the necessary materials are placed in and around the fiberglass, some time is given so that any attachment can dry up before it is used. There are different methods of accomplishing this.  A good contractor can help you determine which method is best for you, taking the cost and size into consideration.

Concrete Swimming pool Construction

In this type of construction, no heavy part is brought from off-site. Everything is done on the site with the use of plaster, steel, and concrete. Generally, before any work is done on the site, an excavation will be carried out. Once the pool design has been dug and shaped, concrete is shot to the right place or poured to form the pool’s shell. Afterwards, tile work is done and finished with plaster. It’s a more rigorous process compared to the fiberglass construction method where the major construction is done from outside and brought to the site.

Vinyl Liner Swimming Pool Construction

This makes use of thinner liner than other methods mentioned above. The vinyl material is used as a barricade for holding the pool water. Then cement is applied on the side to trowel into the pool’s earthen floor.

Construction time

The duration of swimming pool construction varies according to the type of pool. Vinyl pool construction may take between 4 to 7 weeks to complete while fiberglass installation is the quickest, taking anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks from inception to completion. However, cement pool construction takes the longest time because they are usually designed and constructed on site.

Overall, before you decide on the type of material for your pool construction, you need to know the topography of your site and which design will be most ideal for such site. The cost and size should also be taken into consideration.  You can call a consultant to advice you on the best construction method that will be most ideal for you.
