The existing decked area was dismantled to leave a chalk base.The Pool shell wasassembled (the wall in panels, simply bolted together in the corners)and then stood on the previously laid paving slabs (2 slabs under eachshort wall panel and 4 under each longer wall panel), bedded on toconcrete to acheive a perfect level. Some concreting along the longsides of the pool was required so water pressure would not bow thewall. Fittings were then cut into the wall, Underwater light, Skimmer,return and in this case a Swimjet unit was also fitted. The beautifullygrained Toprails were fitted at this point and the liner tracking.

The electrician used a SwimelexControl panel to simplify the job of connecting Heater, Light and Pumpsto the main supply. The old decking Timber was then reused to completethe job. From start to finish - no more than 10 working days!
