Congratulations on your decision to add a fiberglass pool from Thursday Pools® to your backyard! Your decision will not just add value to your property, but it will surely be the hit of the entire neighborhood for many years to come as you host gatherings that will leave your guests in awe and wonderment.
So now that you’ve worked with your dealer to select your pool shell, the water color and all the added extras, the real fun begins. By this, we mean that the start of your fiberglass pool’s journey is just beginning. This blog post will outline the process of the fiberglass pool journey and give you an idea of what to expect.
Step 1: Getting your home ready
When you purchase a fiberglass pool shell from an authorized Thursday Pools dealer, they will come out to your home to get an agreement signed and check to ensure all utilities are in working order. The dealer will also work to obtain any necessary permitting so that there are no surprises. Once this is completed, the dealer will arrange for digging and work with the Thursday Pools® factory to ship the pool shell to your home.
Step 2: Delivery of the shell
Following the home assessment, the fiberglass pool shell is loaded onto a truck trailer that can haul wide loads. This is how the fiberglass pool shell gets delivered to your home. We will do whatever it takes to get the pool safely delivered and when we say we’ll do whatever it takes, we mean it. In fact, we recently delivered a pool to a home on Geist Reservoir where the street was not wide enough to accommodate our truck. This required us to carefully map out a strategy that would effectively get the job done. Through planning and consistent communication, our dealer worked with Geist Marina personnel to drop the fiberglass pool shell into the water and pull it across the reservoir to the customer’s home. There literally is nothing our dealers can’t handle.
Step 3: Installation
The installation of a fiberglass pool from Thursday Pools is one of the most exciting parts of the journey because a customer can watch their dream of pool ownership unfold. This can be seen with the shell being fitted into a hole with precision – and all in real time. Although installations can vary by when considering aspects such as weather, on average it takes about three days for the process to be completed.
Step 4: Completion
Aside from the installation of your fiberglass pool from Thursday Pools, the completion of your pool represents a turning point. Not only does this step signify the transition from concept to completion, but it also signifies the start of a new chapter in your home’s life. We say that the completion phase also signals fun and the start of you and your family becoming the talk of the neighborhood.
Owning a fiberglass pool from Thursday Pools is one of the best investments you as a homeowner can make – not only for the value that it will add to your property, but also for your family and friends who are sure to enjoy it for many years to come.
