An inground pool is a great way to add more entertainment space to a backyard.
The added value will also help homeowners appreciate their home more since it will be a great source of relaxation and a place for friends and family to enjoy the summer together. But what if you have an inground pool that is filled with dirt or leaves, or has insufficient water levels?
If there are any problems with the inground pool, they can easily be fixed by following some simple steps.
Step 1: Getting the Right Equipment
The first step is to make sure that you have the right equipment. You need:
– An inground pool is the most common type of swimming pool that people install in their backyards. They can be filled with either saltwater or freshwater and they are not only used for recreational purposes but also for therapeutic purposes as well.
– A pool pump is needed to provide circulation of water throughout the system, so all parts of the pool are equally cleaned. A water pump is a water moving device that creates a pressure difference to transfer or elevate water.
– A filter is a device for screening out impurities from a fluid stream. Filters in pools work to keep the pool clean and looking its best by filtering out the dirt and debris that can cause algae growth. Filters also help maintain water quality by trapping contaminants such as oils, grease, bacteria, and other substances that could adversely affect the quality of your pool.
And, if your pool starts leaking or has any other problems with it, then you should know what to do with it.
Step 2: Preparing the Site for Installation
This section will teach you how to prepare your backyard before installing your pool, and what to do when you come across different problems.
– If the ground is too hard, it may be necessary to excavate in order to level out the land.
– If there is a large tree nearby, consult with a professional arborist in order to avoid damage or removal of the tree.
– Pets can also cause problems in an inground pool installation if they are not kept away during prep work and installation.
– The final step is often called backfill – when this is done correctly, it ensures structural stability for your pool installation.
Step 3: Installing a Pool Liner or Plastering a Pool Wall
Pool liner installation is a good solution for a pool that is in bad shape. However, there are some disadvantages to this method of fixing up a swimming pool.
Painting a concrete pool is an inexpensive way to change the look of your pool. However, the paint may not be able to withstand the harsh chemicals in a swimming pool and can peel or chip off in certain areas of the concrete near the water line.
Step 4: Installing Pumps & Filters
Pumps are installed in the pool area to bring water from the ground into the pool. The filter is necessary to clear debris and other particles before water enters the pool.
Step 5: Connecting Pipes/Filter Lines to the Pool Liner or Wall
The pipes and filter lines connect to the pool liner or wall. The process to install them varies depending on whether you are installing an inground pool or a simple above-ground pool.
If you are installing an inground swimming pool, the process is more complex. You have to dig a hole for the pool liner or assemble it on top of a deck. You will then have to fill the pool with water and connect it with pipes that carry water from the house, pump, and filter liners. When doing this, make sure to use sealant around any holes in the ground so that dirt doesn’t get into your water system.
