If you’re considering installing an in-ground pool, you likely have a number of questions, and the most common inquiry is the duration of the installation process. This answer will depend on the style of pool you want to purchase, and the following guide will provide you with a better understanding of the different types of pools that are available, along with the amount of time it takes to have one installed:

Concrete Pools

These take the longest time to install, and a minimum of four to six weeks will be required for the process. Your backyard will become a construction zone until the project is complete because all of the work will have to take place on-site. Additionally, because these types of pools need time to cure, you will have to wait at least a month before you can fill it up with water.

Liner Pools

This type of pool is also constructed on-site, but less work is required because they are less labour intensive than concrete pools, so they generally take anywhere from two to five weeks to install. The pool will arrive in pieces and will be put together at your house. After the frame is built, a vinyl liner will be fitted, and this can be filled with water. Liner pools can be installed quite quickly because the project can be completed with the use of assembly kits, so if you have the time and the resources, it can be put together very fast.

Shipping Container Pools

These pools have the fastest installation time, and the project can be completed as quickly as a few days. This is because they are manufactured off-site and are delivered to homes as a complete unit, so your pool can be installed in a couple of days. In terms of swimming, you are likely looking at about two weeks as this will allow for the proper installation and is how long the entire process takes from start to finish to swimming day.

These are the three most common types of pools and their installation times, although delays can cause the project to take longer, so you need to keep that in mind. There are certain things that you will not be able to control, and certain factors like weather conditions may cause the installation process to take longer than what originally was stated. Make sure you have all of the necessary building permits before the installers arrive, as this can help speed up the process and plan the installation in advance so that your pool is ready when summer arrives.
