Silverline Fibreglass Pools by compass The Silverline range from Compass has been developed for DIY install or builders on a project needing a swimming pool. The Silverline range gives you the quality of a Compass Pool with the backup of an engineer that you can contract for one day or one week depending on how confident you are. Compass goes beyond the conventional Fibreglass pool construction to give you the finest quality pool a self builder can buy. Read more about why you should choose a Compass Pool vs a Fibreglass Pool When installing a Fibreglass Pool cheap is not necessarily always good, and what might apear on the surface to be a good deal might not necessarily be so. So follow our checklist to ensure you have a good quality fiberglass pool.

Fibreglass Pools Check List

  1. Go and see 2 fibreglass pools. One in the ground and 1 out of the ground. Look at the lines of the pool, can you see ripples? Look at the back of the shell. Is it well formed, how is it reinforced, with metal that can rust?
  2. Look at the warranty. Is it for the shell and surface finish or is it just to hold water? What good is a osmosis blister covered pool in 5 year or less?
  3. Are they made in a humidity controlled factory? How many pools do they produce a year? Is there a showroom to go and view them?
  4. Is the gelcoat in contact with the water? Any colour that is in contact with chlorine (another name for bleach) will discolour over time. Often fiberglass pool manufacturers will cheat by putting a tile band on the pool so you can’t tell if its discolored below the waterline.
  5. What temperature can the pool be heated to? Cheap polyester pools are limited to 30degrees to prevent blistering.

    Installation Process

    excavateThe most important part, come down to the showroom and choose your pool!

    excavateThe first step in the install process is to mark out on the ground the size of the pool and the finished level, you will mark out an overdig to allow for backfill, you will then excavate to the depth of the pool plus room for backfill along with a trench for the services to the plant room.

    baseOnce the hole is dug, you will then order in a lorry of micro concrete / stabalised sand / screed mix to lay the base of the pool in the bottom of the hole. Its a good idea to hire in a laser from a hire shop to enable you to get this spot on.

    pool-in-holeThe pool will be delivered on an articulated lorry, you should hire in a telehandler or excavator large enough to lift the pool from the lorry into the hole, if sufficient access is not available (2.5m) then a local crane company will be able to lift the pool into position. This pool itself being made of composite is extremely light for its size. Once in the hole you can fine tune the level and position using a laser

    trenchThe pool will be pre plumbed with all its fittings into the shell, you will be supplied with 25m rolls of flexible pipework that need running in the trench you dug earlier. There are 3 fittings on the pool shell to glue the pipe to (glue supplied). You can then backfill the pipes with builders sand to protect them.

    pipework The filtration system will either come as a pre plumbed box, or as component parts to be fitted into a shed or outbuilding. Its your option. The 3 pipes from the pool and lighting cables will be attached to this. We can hire a pressure testing kit to you to ensure you did everything correctly. Alternatively hire one of our engineers.

    backfillOnce the pool is all plumbed up its now time to backfill the pool with screed mix, this is done by machine, barrow or pump. Its a 1-2 day job carefully packing all the crevices to ensure you have a strong shell.

    Fill Its now ready to put the hose in, 1-3 days depending on your water pressure and you will be ready to power up.

    enjoy Now its full of water, its just a case of powering up the filtration system, testing and you are away. Allow a few days to heat up depending on the heat source you have specified.
