Shipping Container Pool Installation: What To Expect

Shipping Container Pool Installation: What To Expect

“Sustainability” and “Denver” go hand in hand. That’s why so many residents are choosing shipping container pools as their backyard water attraction. Modular pools are durable, affordable, and moveable, making them the perfect addition to your outdoor living space. Additionally, they offer eco-friendly aspects as well.

Building a modular pool looks a little different than your standard underground structures. Knowing what to expect during your shipping container pool installation will help you prepare for the process.

Step 1: Planning

As with any home improvement project, you’ll need to plan before installing your modular pool/shipping container pool. Homeowners need to make choices about placement, dimensions, and landscape/hardscape designs to build the backyard of their dreams. Some questions you’ll need to discuss with your contractor include:

  • How large is your shipping container pool?
  • Will it be above ground, underground, or built within your deck?
  • How do you want to surround your completed pool?

Step 2: Digging

Next, you’ll need to prepare the space for your shipping container pool. If you’ve chosen to install your pool underground, dig a hole deep and wide enough to fit your dimensions.

Even if you’ve decided to keep your pool above ground, you’ll still need to clear the area. Shipping containers are heavy and can damage your backyard without the right preparation. Laying down supportive structures will keep the ground in good condition.

Step 3: Installation

After you’ve planned and prepped, installation can finally begin. Parts for your shipping container won’t come in pieces like a traditional pool. Instead, your provider will likely use a crane to place your pool in its designated area.

Additionally, during a shipping container pool installation, you’ll need to dig trenches for your gas and electric lines.

Step 4: Connection

You’re almost done! Once your shipping container pool is in place and you’ve run your utility lines, you can finally connect electricity to your pool. This step will ensure you can use any lighting or heating accessories you’ve designed in stage one.

Of course, you can’t enjoy your shipping container pool without water. Call your city supplier to fill your pool with clean and clear H2O. Once you’ve fully connected your backyard water structure, it’s ready to use!
