Above-Ground Pool Installation

Unlike the big pool chain stores we come to you to see just what your needs are. By doing this we can better evaluate what pool & equipment will best suite your needs for your yard conditions. We check your ground for level, check for the best location for the pool and the pump & filter. As we do decks too, we can design the perfect deck for your back yard. Then you can visit our pool yard and see the pool that is perfect for your home.   

Financing as low as 6.78% now available thru Lending Club. They will finance your whole back yard project.
We here at Hopkins pools pride ourselves in doing a quality installation for our customers. In a typical installation we will lay out the pool area so you can see precisely where the pool is to be located. (Please note that your pool must be within 6" of level in order to get the standard price quoted below. Prices does not inclue the permit required for the installation).Then the grass is removed from the area. We over cut the area so after the pool is installed you can maintain a grass free area of about 18” around the pool. The site is then leveled using a surveyor’s instrument. Base pack is assembled on blocks keeping the pool in-round or in- oval shape, which you have purchased. Mason sand and is added as needed on the bottom. The ground is compacted, and then  chemicals are applied to prevent grass intrusion. All is covered with visqueen. This last step will differ if you purchased Armor Shield, or the Perfect Bottom system. The wall is erected. The liner is inserted and vacuumed into place. This giving you the smoothest bottom possible. Next is the trim out. All uprights, top seat rails and finish caps are installed. Next your equipment. We start by setting down cement pads to make a firm base. The equipment is then assembled in place. Skimmer and return fitting (s) are installed. Everything is then plumbed using 1 ½ inch PVC pipe. Every pool the same. Perfect!   Prices are listed below.

Here at Hopkins pools we also offer excavation services should you want your above ground pool set part way
