Is Installing In-Ground Pools Worth the Investment?

Having a resort-like pool in your own backyard is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and spend quality time with friends and family. The memories that you will create by having a pool are something that will last a lifetime.

In addition, having an in-ground swimming pool can add value to your home and increase its marketability when it’s time to sell. All of these factors make investing in a high-quality, professionally installed pool well worth the cost.

At Pinnacle Pool, we understand that the decision to invest in an in-ground pool is a big one, and that’s why it’s important to hire a qualified and certified installer. Our team is committed to providing you with the highest quality in-ground pool installation services so that you can enjoy your backyard oasis for years to come.

Our Process

At Pinnacle Pool, we strive to make our process as seamless and stress-free as possible. Since we do all of the work in-house, we are there for you every step of the way. From design to installation, our team takes care of all the details so that you can have peace of mind knowing that your new pool will be installed correctly and safely.


Our process begins with an initial consultation. Not only will we discuss your needs and wants, but we also will ensure that zoning and other regulations are met. We have different pool options to choose from, so we can help you create the perfect design. Our team can also discuss hardscaping options, such as waterfalls, fireplaces, pizza ovens, lighting, and more.

3D Design

Once we have created a custom design, we will provide you with a 3D rendering of your pool. This is our way of showing you exactly what your pool will look like before construction begins so that there are no surprises when it’s time to start building. During this time, we can make any desired changes to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the design.


Once the design is finalized, we can begin the installation process. We use only top-of-the-line materials in order to ensure a quality build and long-lasting pool. Then our team will begin the excavation and installation of the pool shell. The next step is to use Pool-Krete or vermiculite to shape the pool floor. The last steps are to backfill the walls of the pool, install the liner, and fill the pool. Our team will do a final walkthrough with you to make sure that everything meets your satisfaction and show you how to maintain your pool properly.

What Happens If an In-Ground Pool Is Installed Incorrectly?

The most common thing that happens when a vinyl-liner pool is installed incorrectly is that a bubble can form between the liner and the wall of the pool. As a result, your liner will float and separate from the ground causing costly damage.

Another risk is if the electrician doesn’t bond the pool correctly. This can cause electrical shocks to anyone who is in water that is connected to a metal ladder, slide, or diving board.

The Pinnacle Pool Difference

To avoid improper in-ground pool installation and costly mistakes, you should always hire a certified installer like Pinnacle Pool. In Minnesota, it is not required to be licensed to build in-ground pools, which is why it’s so important to choose a reputable company like ours. At Pinnacle Pool, we hold ourselves to a higher standard compared to many other pool builders. Our team uses the Pool & Hot Tub Alliance (PHTA) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards and codes to ensure that the job is done correctly. We pride ourselves on being PHTA-certified, and continue to further our education in the pool industry by keeping up with any changes or advancements.
