How Messy is a fiberglass pool installation
A fiberglass pool installation is, relatively speaking, less messy than vinyl liner or concrete. However, note that I said less messy, rather than not messy. We're using giant machinery to rip out a ton of earth and put in your glittery new pool. It's not a clean, tidy process. There tends to be a rose-colored-glasses assumption that there won't be that many machines, and they won't make that much of a mess. In the past we've heard people say, "I didn't know my yard was gonna be such a mess. No one told me."Well, it's time someone told you—and that someone is River Pools. There's a reason we recommend that for new-built houses, you should put in the pool before the landscaping and driveway. Get the messy work done first. Afterward, you can craft the beautiful details and know that they'll stay in good shape. How messy will your yard get during a fiberglass pool installation?

All these things will collectively damage your yard: Dump trucks Concrete trucks Large trucks bringing flatbed trailers to haul the excavator The skid loader The truck hauling the crew back and forth These machines will more than likely leave large, muddy ruts in your yard, sometimes 2 ruts if it's a tandem axle—that is when there are two wheels side-by-side in the back. Yes, I had to check the definition of "tandem axle"; don't judge me. Good news, though: you can fill in these ruts after the fact. You might even be able to use the piles of dirt to do it. Reduce, reuse, recycle.
