The swimming pool kit is designed for you the homeowner to be able to install the pool kit yourself which will also give you the biggest savings on the project. Once the ground is level, the pool kit can be installed in one day for a round swimming pool or two days for an oval swimming pool. The pool can be installed semi-inground if you are installing it in the side of a hill or up to 18”-24” set in the ground if you have good drainage to prevent the area around the pool from becoming saturated with rain water. If you have a high content of clay in the soil you will need to backfill with gravel or build a retaining wall to prevent the heavy soil from bowing or even buckling the swimming pool wall. You should use a backhoe or bobcat skid steer loader for the excavation. If necessary you may want to subcontract or hire someone to complete some of the work. As summer approaches most pool installers will have a full scheduled but experience is not necessary to install our above ground swimming pool kits. A handyman or even teenagers can install the swimming pool and usually will charge less than an experienced installer.
