But how do you build an indoor pool? #
Indoor pool: Come up with the pool layout #
Before you start constructing your indoor pool, it is crucial to identify the pool design. Often, your pool contractor will ask you what you need. Afterward, they come up with several pool design options that cater to all your needs. Today, many pool builders create spectacular 3D pool designs, even for indoor pools. Only after settling for the best pool design will you continue with pool construction.

Your local authorities have to inspect your site before you construct an indoor pool. They have to make sure that you won’t interfere with any underground cables. Failure to schedule an inspection with your local authorities will attract hefty fines and penalties. It would be best to let your pool builder organize the permits for you.
Creating the pool space #
After you obtain all the permits, your pool contractors will arrive on-site and start pool construction. They will carve out your pool design on the available indoor area. They have to ensure that the area is clean and free from any obstacles that might hinder pool construction.
Pool plumbing #
Once the pool space is ready, pool plumbing gets done. All electrical cables get installed to ensure the optimal functioning of pool equipment. Electrical wires meant to connect the pool pumps, filters, and other equipment to get installed during this process.
Vinyl /Gunite/Fiberglass pools installation #
After pool plumbing, the next stage gets determined by the type of pool. For indoor gunite pools, gunite material gets poured onto the steel framework to create the pool floor. On the other hand, fiberglass pools are ready-made, and all you need to do is position them in the pool area. Also, the construction time varies depending on your pool type.

After installing the pool, you can incorporate extra features and pool accessories. Some of them include led lighting, water fountains, and spas. Construct the pool deck area. Also, tile and cope the surface of the pool.
