25 Meter (Short Course) Backyard Lap Pool Construction Timelapse


8 млн көрүүлөр2 658

    Construction of 25 Meter, two lane lane lap pool. 85K gallons.
    Best viewed on TV in 1080P.
    Video is geared towards the pool construction enthusiast audience - might be a bit long-winded for the casual viewer - apologies.
    Edit: For those viewers that are "pool nerds" like me - here are some fun specs on the pool.
    Length: 82’
    Width: Main pool area: 19’
    Bench / Baja / Spa sections: 33’
    Depth: Baja Shelf / back bench: ~22”
    Around spa: 3’
    Shallow end lap lanes: 4’
    Centerline of pool: 4’6”
    Deep end: 10’
    600 cubic yards volume in ground
    72 x 12-yard-trucks hauled off
    (3 work days - 5 guys)
    ~18,000 LF #4 rebar
    (1.5 work days - 4 guys)
    ~300 LF 3" PVC
    ~1,300 LF 2" PVC
    ~350 LF 1.5" PVC
    (6 work days - 3 guys)
    190 cubic yards (probably more like 160 in place after rebound loss and shot compression)
    10" walls top to bottom, 9" floors
    (1.5 work days ~ 18 guys)
    1st clean-up:
    30 cubic yards
    (0.5 work days - 4 guys)
    Tile & Coping:
    400 SF glass
    220 SF split-face
    330 LF 5cm coping
    (10 work days - 4 guys)
    32 cubic yards
    (3 work days ~12 guys)
    7 cubic yards of Wet-Edge Southern Lights
    (0.75 work days ~30 guys)
    Total Construction Time without flood would have likely landed between 4 and 6 months (depending on how much we hired out vs doing ourselves.)
    With the flood and rebuilding the house though, it stretched to about 3 years - with long breaks in-between phases of the pool project post-flood.
    Equipment package:
    2 x Pentair Intelliflo VS Pumps
    2 x Pentair Quad DE 100 Filters
    2 x Pentair MasterTemp 400K BTU Cupro-Nickel Heaters
    1 x Pentair Intellitouch i10+3D
    1 x Pentair Mobile-touch Wireless Control
    1 x Pentair Screen Logic 2 Wireless Interface
    5 x Pentair Intellivalve Actuator
    1 x Pentair Intelliflo XF Booster Pump (Spa)
    3 x Pentair Intellibrite 5g spa lights
    4 x Pentair Intellibrite 5g pool lights
    1 x QT 2HP Blower (Spa)
    4 x Color Match Superflo 360 Driains
    1 x Paramount ParaLevel Auto-Fill
    4 x Paramount Venturi Skimmers
    3 x 30 gal Stenner Chem tanks/pumps

    A lot of folks are asking about price in the comments section
    It's easier for me to explain it here and it makes more sense to provide a range.
    That range is dependent on several variables including regional pricing for labor and materials, engineering requirements due to soil conditions, how much work is contracted out vs. done by the home owner, water features, deck equipment selection and the quality of the materials / equipment used.
    Low-end: If engineering requirements were minimal, soil conditions were ideal, regional pricing was average, standard plaster (non-aggregate finish) were selected, less expensive tile were used, water features were minimal and the home owner built a lot of the non-technical parts of the project themselves (IE: landscaping), a project like this could reasonably run around $200K.
    High end: If the engineering design called for additional structural components (thicker walls, piers under the shell, etc), regional pricing for labor and materials were higher than average, the property sat atop bedrock, premium selections on plaster, tile, equipment and water features were selected, and all aspects of the project were run through contractors, it could easily run up into the $300k-$400k range or more.
    This pool came in towards the lower end of the pricing spectrum due to favorable soil conditions (no rock for excavators, no engineering requirements for structural piers), favorable material and labor market and doing much of the non-technical work on our own.

    Another question several people have asked in the comments section is what the monthly maintenance cost is. The short answer is that it varies quite a bit month to month. To get it to a stable monthly value, the annual cost /12 would probably be the easiest method. (These are approximate numbers)
    200 gallons Sodium Hypochlorite 12.5%: $400
    60 gallons Muriatic Acid 31.45%: $280
    200# sodium bicarbonate: $80
    110# boric acid: $167
    150# tri-chlor: $330
    60k gal water (evaporation): $390
    250 MMBTU natural gas: $1,560
    Mechanical maintenance: $1,000
    8,300 kWh Electricity: $747
    There are some other random items like calcium chloride, diatomaceous earth, pool brushes, etc that come up periodically but they can probably be wrapped up in that $1k mechanical maintenance figure.
    $4,954/ 12 = $413/mo
    We do the maintenance ourselves. Otherwise the labor would likely be the highest cost.

    I hope you enjoy the time-lapse.

      Why would you do the concrete on it before testing for leaks ?? Juat wondering im in the bussiness of building pools my seld

      1. Backyard_Lap_Pool

        The 48 hour Time-Lapse of the Static Pressure Testing was too exciting and would have overshadowed the rest of the video - so we decided to remove it from the final cut.

    26. daniel j 8711

      very good and fun

    27. Luis Barraza

      Those crazy Tri guys would love this. They seem to be obsessed with doing all training at home.

    32. paulinio G

      In US they build quality swiming pools with steel and ciment,but same time they build cheap wood cartoon houses,wich they fly away on the next strong wind🥇👏

      1. Flamethrower

        Not everywhere. They build quality houses all over the country. Some houses are built cheap and the price shows.

    33. flushed face emoji

      how many days it rook u to build this

      1. flushed face emoji

        It take two days

    34. cpaganjr123

      Damn hurricane Harvey jacked that place up 🤦🏽‍♂️ I would have died after all that hard work.

    35. Hailey lmao

      imagine the parties..

    36. Brock Chavers

      How much did all that cost ya

    43. Austin and Sians Dad

      Lucky kids.

    44. The GOAT

      Watch it in 2x speed.. you'll thank me later..

      1. Diabolus Fornacis

        Bra, you saved me 10 minutes of life. You are the GOAT.

    45. Oniel Delva

      Where did you get all that space

      1. Robert Reese

        If you check when the aerial shots pan out, the lot is on a circle on the edge of a subdivision, with virtually no front yard and a large slice-of-pie backyard, ideal for a long, skinny pool.

    46. Arun kumar

      What will they do if it was raining heavily during construction

      1. 123TauruZ321

        Pay double.

      2. SaucyBegger25

        Not of gotten flooded I imagine as the pool took days to fill so could of saved there house from flooding

    56. Tara Fazio

      The family that swims together stays together! Also: WOW 😳 Hurricane Harvey! That must have been devastating to go through. I’m glad you guys were able to salvage the project and I bet it cost a pretty penny! I LOVE the little ‘maze” within the pool. LOVE the sunken relaxation outdoor living area. And the hot tub is calling my name. This was great fun to watch!

    58. Shane Michael

      Can you tell me what software you used? I am starting a pool build shortly and want to do the same but cant find software that speeds up enough

      1. Backyard_Lap_Pool

        Just used the standard iMovie editor on a MacBook. I’m not a wiz at it by any stretch but it is pretty user friendly for splicing and adjusting video speed.

      How long did this take?

    63. Hendy Roddyck

      I fast forward 2x to watch. Perfect speed.

      1. Carter Wood

        Lol honestly

    64. Anisa’s Drawing NY

      What kind of vacuum did you use to clean the pool? Please send me the link if you can?

      1. Backyard_Lap_Pool

        This is the hose - it simply plugs into the skimmer port: www.poolweb.com/i-helix-pool-vacuum-hose-2-x-100 This is the 41” vacuum head in the video www.poolweb.com/super-pro-vac We actually prefer this 29” one now though. www.poolweb.com/29-inch-commercial-provac

    71. Summer Jones

      I like it but would have wanted more lights at night so it’s lovely and bright for night swims, plus looks good all lighted up

    72. Immortaluck

      Watch with 2x speed

    73. Creature Care Takers

      A deep end and no high dive, diving board or rope swing....sacrilegious.

    76. Teri Shahan

      That’s all amazing on every level including the swimmers!

    77. adam 1812

      Such a dope pool! I'd for sure contract out to local swim teams and work out groups during the month. Offset some of the cost and write off the pool. Plus free workouts in my own backyard!
