Excavation Excavation for a vinyl-lined pool is a job for an experienced backhoe operator. Normally the side excavation is approximately two feet beyond the finished pool perimeter to allow for assembly and a concrete footing to be installed. Assembling Steel Panels & Stairs The second step includes assembly of the steel panels and stairs, coping receptor, skimmer and inlets as well as suction and return plumbing. Pouring Concrete Most builders pour the concrete decking once all of step 2 is completed, but in some cases and with certain water table situations, the liner will be installed before the decking is poured. The pool structure is strong enough to allow installation to proceed in either manner. Liner Installation In this photo we see the liner being stalled.
