Our Pool installation Process

Free No Obligation Quotation

A site inspection will allow us to complete a final quote that is tailored to your specifications



Step 1: Consultation

A consultation will be arranged for Aidan to attend your property for a site inspection, where he will assess your property & take into consideration factors such as the landscape, existing structures, and utilities to discuss where your pool would be best positioned for functionality to create the aquatic reality you have been dreaming of.

Access to your property will be discussed for what machinery will be required to complete the job & if a crane may also be needed.

He will then mark out on the ground the size of your pool so you can visualize the area.

Here at Clearwater Pools Gippsland we will only ever send our experienced pool builder out to quote your site, we have our own earthmoving equipment making the overall process a breeze.

Step 3: Excavation

We will contact you with a dig date.

Our team will be onsite 7-7.30am, to carefully mark out the pool location & begin excavation.

Our skilled operators ensure precision and efficiency throughout the digging process, taking great care to create a well-defined and accurately sized pool hole. All clean fill & spoil will be removed from the site throughout the excavation, unless previously discussed with the owner to leave it at the property.





Step 4: Installation

Once the pool hole has been carefully excavated, screenings are then placed into the hole to make a solid foundation they are spread evenly around the base, the pool will then we lowered & levelled into position.

If a crane is required we only used experienced professional operators. The Lifting of a pool over the house roof requires precision and expertise. Our team carefully coordinates the lifting operation, following established protocols and safety measures. Through effective communication and coordination, we ensure that the pool is safely guided over the roof, minimising any potential risks or damage to the property.

Once the pool has been positioned & secured, our expert installers will proceed to connect the plumbing pipework, connect the pool to the filtration system & install the lights, they ensure that all connections are secure and properly aligned, guaranteeing the optimal functioning of your pool system.






Step 5: Backfilling
Next step is to begin backfilling the pool, the pool will be filled with water as the pool is being backfilled with stabilized crusher dust.


Step 6: Concrete beam

A concrete bond beam is prepared and poured around the edge of the pool. After the concrete is poured, it is left to cure and harden. We recommend the beam to settle for 7 days before commencement of copping.

Throughout the entire process, our team maintains open communication with you, ensuring that you are informed and involved every step of the way. We are committed to providing exceptional customer service and ensuring your satisfaction with the final result.


Step 7: Handover

This process involves starting up the filter systems, flushing out the plumbing lines, chemically dosing the pool and balancing the swimming pool water. A final site clean will be completed at handover. We will teach you how to clean your pool, operate your pool systems and answer any question you may have.



Other Considerations

To avoid any “unwelcome” surprises please consider your situation in relation to the below items and any other costs that may need to be addressed.

Power Source

A standard pool requires two power points at the location of the filtration (which is usually up to 10m from the deep end of the pool). If you are purchasing an underwater pool light and/or spa, each of these will require a separate outlet, that should be located no more than 14m away for maximum brightness.


If your proposed pool area is not level, please consider the possibility of needing to either build up the surrounding area or alternatively excavating and benching it. Consider the need for retaining structures and the effect that altered land will have on your surface drainage.

Application Fees

The prices quoted include the cost of the Engineers plans, the Builders Completion Insurance, and the Building Permit fee. The client may be required to pay for any council crossing boards, town planning permits, dropping of power lines, that the individual site requires.

Landscaping & permanent fencing is not included.
