Our Vinyl Swimming Pool Installation Process

If you're considering installing a vinyl inground swimming pool in your backyard, it's important to understand the timeline for the project. vinyl pool installation typically takes less time than a concrete pool but longer than a fiberglass pool to install. Here's a breakdown of the typical timeline for installing a vinyl pool.

Step 4: Backfilling and Plumbing (1-2 weeks)

After the pool is installed, the contractor will backfill the area around the pool with gravel or sand. This provides support for the pool and helps to prevent shifting over time. The contractor will also install the pool's plumbing and electrical systems during this stage. This typically takes 1-2 weeks.

Step 5: Deck and Landscaping (2-4 weeks)

After the pool and plumbing are installed, a concrete contractor will begin work on the pool deck. With Parrot Bay you have options of choosing your own concrete contractor or we offer stone hardscaping and travertine in house. This stage typically takes 2-4 weeks. You will also need to hire a landscaper to finish your grading and add your landscaping, grass, and fencing.

In conclusion, vinyl pool installation typically takes around 10-12 weeks, depending on the complexity of the project and the weather conditions. By understanding the timeline for your pool project, you can plan your install accordingly and ensure that your new pool is ready to enjoy by the time the hot summer weather arrives.
