When We Arrive

When We Arrive

The Pool Installers will need to know the following:

Pool Location

Where you want the pool and the filtration system. Please have these areas planned and possibly marked before we arrive.


We will need access to the pool and all of its parts (anything we will be installing ). The crew will need to take an inventory to make sure everything needed is there.


The permit needs to be obtained before the pool installation. The location you have picked for the pool must meet the townships/county’s codes, being proper distances away from property lines and existing structures. The ground also needs to be excavated according to the townships codes.

Power Source

We will need access to an electrical outlet for tools needed for the installation.

Ground Leveling

A transit level is used to take an accurate measurement of how far off level the pool site is. The ground leveling fees are $500.00 for the first 6″ inches and $25.00 per inch for every inch thereafter. A price for leveling can be provided once the measurement is taken. The homeowners authorization is needed before any ground leveling can begin.

Area For Waste Material

Designate a area in the yard for waste materials from the ground leveling to be piled (dirt, roots, rock, grass etc.) please have this area planned before we arrive.

Filling The Pool

Once the liner is installed we will need to begin filling the pool to set it in place (1-2 inches of water). If you plan on using your hose check to see if it will reach to where the pool is going. If a water truck is scheduled tell the foreman what time it should be arriving.

Filter Explanation

After the installation is complete the installer will explain how to operate the filtration system and how to connect the vacuum. Please have the person(s) who will be taking care of the pool present for this explanation.


Any questions you have regarding chemicals should be directed to the store where the pool was purchased. Our staff is not knowledgeable in this area.

Ground Leveling


Expect an excavator to call you to set up an excavation time for your pool installation 1 to 7 days in advance of your install date. Please have a 6ft opening ready to access your yard. To get an idea how off level the pool site is see illustrations detailing our process


We need a 6 ft. opening to get into the yard if the pool size is 21 ft. round or larger. For oval pools 12×18 or larger. If the pool is smaller than size’s mentioned we can bring smaller equipment that will fit threw a standard gate opening. Please have this opening ready before the installation date given. This is the customers responsibility to have ready. (if you can not make 6 ft access for larger pools please inform us so we can make other arrangements to do the ground work)

Clean Up

Expect to have to clean up your yard after the pool is installed. The pool site is a construction site. There will probably be some tire tracks where the machine has to ride on the yard to get to the pool site and the sand. There will be waste material left over that will be piled up in a designated area in the yard. This material will consist of dirt, rocks, roots etc.. C&D’s Installers does not remove anything from the customers yard. How much or what size the pile will be will depend on the amount of ground leveling needed to be done, every yard is different.
