What to Expect in a Pool Excavation
Building an inground swimming pool requires the movement of a lot of dirt. It’s common for homeowners to underestimate the amount of dirt that actually comes up when you want to install a swimming pool. An average excavation will create about five garden sheds worth of dirt. It’s too much to be absorbed by the remainder of the yard. As professional excavators we can help transport the dirt out of your yard. There will be little grass left around the pool, plus a 20-foot by 20-foot area where the material piles will be.
There is a minor chance that when doing a swimming pool installation, a rock may be found or groundwater may be found. These situations do not happen frequently, however, it’s important to be aware that they do occur. If they a large rock is found, the most feasible options include moving the pool to another area, elevating the pool, or removing the rock (which can be costly). If groundwater is encountered, the most likely next step is to install a de-watering system or elevate the pool. As your contractor, we can help you understand the details of each of these choices.
