Pool Under Construction
Construction Photo Gallery Page Three
The liner is hung, sealing frames and gaskets are applied, the plumbing is connected, and the pool is filled.
The finished vermiculite base in the deep end of the pool.
It helps to have a group of workers to carefully unfold and pull the liner over the pool.
Two workers pull the liner toward the other end of the pool.
Doug carefully attaches the edge of the pool liner to the pool coping. You can see why they call this whole process "hanging" the pool liner.
The area is "blue taped" to protect the liner. Liners typically have a special pattern along the top edge, like this wave pattern.
The rest of the liner has a multi-colored pattern.
The liner has been hung, but more needs to be done.
A worker uses an industrial vacuum to pull air from behind the liner and form fit the liner to the pool.
Workers install the sealing frame and gasket around the pool stairs. They will also do this around everything installed in the pool walls.
The bucket of the excavator is used to lower a worker toward the bottom of the pool so that sealing frames and gaskets can be installed on the main drain without anyone walking on the liner.
When the liner work is finished and all of the plumbing has been connected to the pool equipment, the pool can be filled with water.
Next, the concrete deck surrounding the pool is built. Cement trucks arrive and workers quickly spread the concrete in the wooden frames.
