One of our most common questions from customers, “how do you install a SwimEx pool?” To help answer the swim spa installation question, we posted videos on our website that demonstrate the process. Here’s an example of a commercial installation from start to finish:


Our team of qualified field technicians work with our clients’ contractors with space layouts, CAD drawings and all those little details. We call it “hassle-free installation.” Our pools can be installed indoors, outdoors, above ground, in-ground, or partially in-ground. We can also move the pool to its exact location. It can be easily shipped all assembled and put in place with a crane. Then you just need to make the plumbing and electrical connections. The pool is pre-plumbed so you are making simple pvc connections to the filtration equipment. You need a drain or sump pump to drain the pool and a source of water to fill the pool. Pools require 85 AMP service (105 Amps is if they choose the 7.5 HP option).

This video shows how we can use a crane to install a pool:


Most SwimEx pools require 200-240 sq. ft. (18.6 – 22.3 sq. m.) of space (1000 S requires 450 sq. ft. or 418 sq. m.), and a pit or flat-level concrete slab. The standard pit area is 12′ x 20′ (3.66 m x 6.1 m) (18′ x 25′ [5.49 m x 7.62 m] for the 1000 S) including a drain or sump pump. On average, the electrical service needed is 105 Amps, 208-240V single-phase (for installations outside North America contact SwimEx for electrical requirements). Your pool also arrives pre-plumbed needing only simple PVC connections.

If a customer does not have open access to take the pool in one piece, it can be assembled on site by their contractor following our manual or by our partner installation company.
