Do-It Yourself Pool Kits

View San Juan Pool Models

For some people installing their own swimming pool is a reasonable goal. The opportunity to save some money utilizing ones own skills can be a rewarding endeavor. If you are in the construction industry or consider yourself a handyman, you probably posses the skills necessary to install your own pool. Now the question is, “What is involved with a “do it yourself” pool installation and why purchase from Capitol Pools?”

Installing an inground fiberglass pool is a relatively simple task when compared to installing other types of inground pools. Every San Juan Fiberglass pool or spa is solid one piece pre-manufactured structure. Each model is constructed on its own giant mold in a controlled manufacturing environment ensuring the highest quality seamless construction. The pool is delivered directly to the job site by the San Juan transportation team. The pool must then be unloaded with a crane, or similar equipment, and then installed into the prepared pool site. Next, the pool is leveled, filled with water and backfilled while the circulation pipes and equipment are installed. After the pool is backfilled and filled with water you’re ready for grading, pouring the concrete deck, installing deck equipment and final clean up.

The next question is, “Why a fiberglass pool kit rather than other types of pool construction kits?”

The two other types of pool construction are vinyl lined and concrete (gunite). Concrete is much too sophisticated for someone other than a pool professional to attempt to install, therefore, vinyl lined kit pools are the only viable alternative to a fiberglass kit pool. Vinyl lined pool kits require you to assemble many pieces together and rely heavily on ambient soil, climatic, and skilled labor to produce a quality product. Vinyl lined pool construction is back breaking work and requires much time and many man hours to complete. A fiberglass pool can be easily installed with two or three laborers in a fraction of the time or energy spent constructing a vinyl lined pool. You will also note that in most instances the many components of a vinyl lined pool will have different warranties and in many cases different manufacturers. With a San Juan pool the whole pool is covered under the famous San Juan 25 year Limited Warranty; the walls, the bottom, the benches, the stairs, everything!

When purchasing “do it yourself” products over the internet such as pools, there is much more involved than simply buying a single object, (clothing, furniture, tools, etc.). You will need to rely on the advice and experience of the company you are purchasing from to guide you through the installation process and to avoid pitfalls that can cause problems. Capitol Pools is one of the few companies that is a swimming pool contractor as well as a wholesale distributor. We have intimate knowledge regarding pool layout design, installation, plumbing, equipment setup, not to mention all the tricks of the trade you won’t find in standard installation manuals. We are only a phone call away if you have any questions as you proceed with the installation process. We can supply you with all the supporting equipment for the pool installation (pumps, filters, heaters, lights, etc.), and give you advice on proper installation. If you want to build your own pool but are uncomfortable with some aspect of the installation process, you may hire Capitol Pools to do those portions for you, or even hire us to do the entire project. Many internet based pool sales outfits will only sell you the product; after that, you’re on your own. Capitol Pools is a warranty station and has repair technicians for all our products.
