In-ground pool foundations are sometimes overlooked when construction plans are put together and reviewed. Unfortunately, these massive concrete structures encounter the same problems as homes and commercial buildings, which include differential settlement, weak soils, and high water tables. Helical piles are often incorporated into the design of in-ground swimming pools to combat these issues. Exterior pool walls are designed much the same as a perimeter foundation wall.
Helical piles are integrated to encompass the perimeter and the interior, beneath grade beams, or in a grid pattern, much like supporting and thickened slabs. The helical pile scope is completed before the concrete pour and shotcrete unite process. Our experienced staff can assist in the design, budgeting, and best construction method for your next in-ground.
