Are you ready to turn your backyard into an oasis? Look no further than Otter Pools for an in-ground swimming pool for your family to enjoy. But now that you’ve purchased your pool, how does it get from the factory floor to being fully installed at your property? Typically, you purchase your pool from us, then professional third-party pool installers are contracted by you to prepare the site, install the pool and features, and finish the pool. Here’s an outline of the process.

Contractors & Paperwork

The journey to your dream pool begins when you hire your pool installation contractors. Otter Pools can advise you no your choice of installation contractor, but always make sure you do your homework; choose an experienced and well-reviewed installer – get the best you can afford to make sure you get the highest quality and support.

Your chosen contractor should also be able to help complete the necessary paperwork and permit requirements, source materials and sub-contractors, and start planning the project from start to completion.

Site Prep

Next comes the meticulous site preparation required for a successful installation. Experienced contractors carefully survey, assess, and prepare the area, ensuring a solid foundation for your swimming pool. The contractors handle all aspects of excavation, making sure that the site is properly leveled and free from any obstacles that may hinder the installation process.

Pool Installation

Once the site is ready, the project moves on to the installation of the swimming pool itself. Skilled third-party pool installers, plumbers, and electricians work diligently to install the pool shell, plumbing, electrical, and pump systems. With precise attention to detail, they will ensure that everything is properly aligned, securely connected, and tested.

Professional installers are experienced in all types of swimming pool setups, including saltwater, chlorine, and mineral pools. The filter is also installed at this time, meticulously set up to optimal efficiency in order to maintain crystal-clear, clean, safe water at all times.

Pool Decking and Accessories

After the installation is complete, the focus switches to the finishing touches that truly bring your swimming pool to life. Contracted professionals can assist you in choosing the perfect decking materials and pool decks that complement your outdoor space. Whether you prefer a sleek and modern look or a natural, rustic aesthetic, a wide range of options is available to suit your style and preferences.

Enhance your pool’s functionality and aesthetics with our extensive range of accessories. From pool covers and slides to water features and lighting, a range of accessories is available to create a personalized paradise.


To complete the project, the installers can also take care of your landscaping requirements, creating a harmonious environment where your swimming pool seamlessly blends with its surroundings. Landscaping services can include the design and installation of plants, trees, and landscaping features, enhancing the overall beauty of your outdoor space.

Upon completion, thorough water testing is conducted to ensure that your pool is ready for use, checking the water’s pH, alkaline, and chlorine levels, and making any necessary adjustments, guaranteeing a safe and enjoyable swimming experience for you and your family.
