Mud Disclaimer:

West Shore Pools has years of experience installing swimming pools and will not install pools on mud. You as a customer must rely on our experience to determine the appropriate course of action.

Installation on soft soil can lead to settlement and damage of your pool. Rain soaked or swampy earth may delay install days or weeks. One reliable indicator of a no-go installation is when the soil cannot support the weight of the excavator or deep footprints are created. Sometimes structural fill can be used, but will incur extra costs and/or delays.
