Swim Sports Inc, is excited to share we were honored to win the 2020 and 2021 Reader's Choice Award for Best Pool and Hot Tub Store in South Shore Holmes Life and Style Magazine!
Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for us!
Swim Sports has installed hundreds of pools all over the South Shore of Massachusetts.
Here are some pictures that show our installation process, Swim Sports only installs one pool at a time in a span of 5-7 business days with weather and all circumstances permitting. Our pools are created by experienced engineers at Pacific and you can rest assured they are structurally sound.
All pools below were part of the 2012 Installation season and show a specific step. Please click on a picture to enlarge.
Day 1: Pool is measured and drawn onto the ground for excavation.
Day 1 : Wall Panels start going up with K frames to hold the walls in place.
Day 1: All walls, stairs, swim out, and K frames are up to form the structure of the pool. Swim Sports is the only pool company in the area that has Graphex Polymer Walls to add strength and flexibility for the ground movement that occurs in our seasonal cycles.
Day 2: All the walls and the general structure of the pool is leveled to perfection before Cement Bond Beam around the K frames is formed to cement everything in place. Stakes from K frames are hammered deep into the ground .
Day 3: The floor of the pool which is 3 to 4 inches thick and weighs 3,000 pounds. 3/8 stone concrete and is poured by cement truck and hand troweled.
Day 4: The wing walls of the deep end are troweled with Vermiculite. This cement floor, Vermiculite wing floor combination is what we have found to work best over the years. Our floors are thick and smooth.
Day 4: Completion of the pool floor, plumbing work, and light installation are done today! We use a combination plumbing system of Schedule 40 PVC and black poly on all underground plumbing.
Day 5: Diamond blade power grinding of the floor being to remove ridges and imperfections. The floor is swept and vacuumed to remove all debris to ensure the smoothest surface. Then the liner is unfolded and inserted into coping track.
Day 5: Once liner is in its coping track, vacuums are put on either side of the pool to suck liner tight against the walls. At the same time water is added to pool so the liner is set with out any wrinkles.
Day 5/6: Back filling is done around the perimeter of pool. If you need clean fill like the sand pictured above, we bring it in. In some yards fill needs to be hauled off. Pool is wired by an electrician after this point.
Grass is coming in, patio complete, permanent fence is up. Enjoy!
3 Weeks later: Depending on patio choice, and ground conditions we compact during back fill and also suggest waiting 3 weeks for patio. When the masons determine the ground is ready they will install your patio. This completes the structural integrity of these engineered Pacific pools.
