An easy process
that gives you
more control.

As the world’s fastest, easiest, and highest-quality pool manufacturer, we work directly with builders, pool builders, and landscapers to help our customers achieve an amazing outcome with their Plungie.

Permits are required to have a pool installed in America, which is why every Plungie must be installed by an appropriately qualified tradesperson.

Thousands of happy customers have successfully completed their Plungie project by engaging a builder, pool builder, or even a structural landscaper. In some places, they’ve even done DIY installs as an owner-builder. We also have a growing number of full-service dealers across the country who assist with installations.

Below are our recommended installation solutions:

  • Bring Your Own Builder (BYOB)
    Any qualified home builder or pool builder can manage the permitting, site preparation, and installation of a Plungie. Some locations also allow for a structural landscaper or plumber to install one.
  • Full-Service Plungie Dealer
    We have a growing number of installation partners who can manage the certification, site preparation, and installation of a Plungie.
  • Owner Builder
    Installing a Plungie as an owner-builder is an available option in some locations - we recommend checking the required processes and permits with your local government to see whether this is viable for you.

It’s important to know that no two projects or installations are exactly the same. Regardless of the chosen install solution, we provide comprehensive and straightforward pre-engineered specifications, how-to documentation, and videos to help you and your builder complete your project with ease.

The general process of getting a Plungie follows the steps below:

1. Choose your Plungie

This is the easy part. We can quote you for the supply and delivery of your Plungie, as well as the supply of your chosen equipment.

2. Building approval/certification

Permits must be submitted to the local town hall or government center. This step is generally handled by the installer. We provide the required pool documentation for these submissions in a straightforward pack for you and your installer. 

3. Site preparation

Every Plungie must sit on a pre-engineered concrete slab footing, specific to the particular soil type of the site. Additional site works include the earth excavation and soil removal if the pool is going in-ground or semi-recessed.

4. Crane hire

At the point of delivery, a crane is required to lift the pool from our delivery truck and place it onto the concrete base slab footing.

Crane hire is one of the most variable factors in an installation, as they are always site-specific and heavily impacted by the ease of access to the property. Most reputable crane hire companies offer a free site assessment and quote.

The crane company will need the dimensions and weight of the pool and the lifting specifications. These are outlined in our lifting diagrams.

5. Plumb up

Every Plungie is supplied with its primary plumbing fixtures pre-fitted. This includes the skimmer box, hydro-static valve, and the provisions for general filtration and safety suction and spare lines.

The pool requires a plumb-up service to connect the general filtration equipment to these pre-fitted provisions. Depending on the chosen equipment, this can be completed by a pool service professional, builder, pool builder, or plumber. 

6. Electrical

Every Plungie must be earthed by a trade-qualified electrician. 

The filtration equipment requires access to power.

7. Backfill

If the Plungie is being installed in-ground or semi-recessed, the over-excavated area of the footing will need to be backfilled with a granular material that will allow for drainage away from the footings. 

8. Finishings

One of the many advantages of a Plungie is its ability to be finished to any project design or aesthetic. Once the pool has been installed, the following elements can be completed to personalize any project:

  • Coping tiles
  • Waterline tiles
  • Fencing
  • Decking
  • Paving
  • Landscaping

9. Fill + startup

Once the Plungie has been finished to the desired standards and all the inspections are complete, the pool can then be filled and chemically balanced; ready for swimming.
