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. 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 two different 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! But that’s not all. We offer the lowest  installation prices in the area and all of work is done in house. No subs. Think that's it? Not yet! We go one step further. Upon delivery of your above ground pool if we are not there to start your job within 2 days (weather permitting) you will receive an additional 10% off your installation price.  Prices are listed below.
