Either by you or your contractor:
- Landscaping preparation
- Crane/forklifting for offloading the Modpool
- Running electrical
- Connecting the gas line
Here are the points you will need to consider when looking at an in-ground or partial in-ground installation:
- You will want to have a perimeter drain and a sump pump to avoid any groundwater seeping into your mechanical room.
- You will need to allow a 3ft minimum (4ft preferred) swing for your mechanical room doors. This area should be finished with retaining walls.
- You will need to allow for above-ground gas venting.
- If you are back-filling against your Modpool, we recommend a vapour barrier between the Modpool and the back-fill.
To retain access to your mechanical room, you would need to extend your "dig out" by an additional 4' in length around the seating end of your pool to accommodate a drop-down access space. Most clients have some decking concept on a hinge over this hole in the ground. Here are some examples: Example 1, Example 2, Example 3
