Product and service inclusions differ with each pool company. If you want your new pool installation to give you your money’s worth, you must be able to identify the key additions that hold true value. In that regard, make sure that pencil compaction is included by the company and written into your contract. If this is your first time to come across the term, here are a few frequently asked questions about pencil compaction:
What is pencil compaction?
Pencil compaction is a relatively new and innovative way of speeding up the pool installation process. It is meant to remove air pockets in loose sand when the backfilling process is already done.
Can anybody perform pencil compaction?
Most certainly not. So many things can go wrong with the procedure with costly ramifications, so entrust pencil compaction only to a certified pool installation professional.
Can all pools be pencil compacted?
Not all pools require pencil compaction, especially those that include a cement/sand mixture as the pool’s backfill. That being said, fibreglass pools can greatly benefit from the process.
Pencil compaction can help you save time, effort, and money with your pool installation, so make sure to look for a pool contractor that offers the service.
