Step 2

PLANNING

Using our tried and tested planning process, you can save time and mitigate the risk of unexpected hurdles arising during construction.

1. IDENTIFY CHALLENGES AND OBSTRUCTIONS
Are there any trees that could affect the construction of the pool? If so, what can you do about it? Before you decide to remove the tree, you will need the approval of local government authorities. Check with your local council to find out what the process is in your area.

2. DETERMINE THE LANDSCAPE RATIO
It is important to determine the landscape ratio to identify if pool construction is actually possible within local government guidelines.

3. IS THERE ACCESS FOR CONSTRUCTION?
Do you have enough access for excavation machinery? The size of access will affect the cost of excavation and determine the types of machines and trucks that can be used.

4. CHECK FOR EASEMENTS AND SEWER LINES
Are there any easements or sewer lines that may interfere with the position of the pool? If you are unsure, obtain a sewer diagram. This will help to identify possible solutions including pool placement and redirection of sewer lines.

5. IS A SAND FILTER REQUIRED?
When installing a sand filter, discharge will need to be disposed of to a sewer riser.  If there is no riser available then consider a cartridge filter.
