When we meet with homeowners to discuss inground fiberglass pools or Radiant pools, of all of the items we discuss setting the “grade” trumps them all.
What is grade you may ask? It is the given name to define the point at which corresponds to the finished height of the pool. This might not be the finished height of the overall job as you need to account for the 4” concrete, paver, or coping stone which your placing on the top of the swimming pool.
The tool we use to set the grade is a transit or others call a laser transit or laser level. The key to a successful build is for the builder and the home owner clearly define and understand the finished height of the pool and the finished height of the project.
