Fibreglass Pool Installation at First and Second Fix

Swimming pool installations as part of new build projects are typically completed in two parts: delivery takes place at foundation stage and “first fix” below-ground pipework is fitted.

Then plant rooms and covers are finished as part of the second fix. Normally, it’s 6 to 18 months between pool delivery and the pool’s grand opening, when part of a complete newbuild project or refurb.

We delivered an Olympia-R with integral slatted cover to a site in Essex earlier this month, where our one-piece pool was situated in its hole at foundation stage. Ground works will be completed and the pool covered over before we come back to fit the plant room towards the end of the overall project.

The contractors for this build took all aspects of installation in their stride, armed with our comprehensive installation manual and with us – as always – at the end of the phone for additional support whenever needed.
