It depends on the ground freeze. If the ground is already frozen excavation would be difficult to near impossible. Concrete however can have curing agents added to it to allow for the temp and be covered with concrete blankets until fully cured. I live in Colorado and started our pool in late october. No problem until it was time to backfill and the piles of dirt froze. You don't want frozen backfill that can't be properly compacted or you'll get settling around the pool later. If this a good contractor and pool is a vinyl lined style, it should take no more than 2 weeks to complete. If your weather window is that big go for it.
Do you have a pool light niche already installed in the pool? If not, you need a pool builder to do the job to code.
yes you do close the pool actually you call the buliders of the pool and ask them when it is time to winterize it.
If you are referring to underwater lighting you must install the pool first but before you install the water.
Justin Bieber has a inground pool
The following web address will give you a good guide for winter closing the pool http://swimming.about.com/od/poolandspamaintenance/a/ingroundpoolclo.htm
Last one I installed was in excess of $750,000 with the filtration system
I think it is not advisable to leave the swimming pool empty during winter times. Snows and falling branches of trees and leaves can harm your swimming pool. There are some pool covers that you can use and designed for winters like Pool Leaf Covers and Winter Covers.
For Draining a pool, I use my pump that I use during the winter to pump off the cover. I start it out on the first step of the inground pool and move it down accordingly.
The cost of installing an in-ground pool in Martha's Vineyard is around $50,000. The actual cost varies based on the size and type of pool installed.
No. You just drain out enough water to close up the skimmers/plumbing, but the pool remains mostly full.
You can buy pool chlorine for an inground pool in Austin, Texas at your local Leslie's Pool Supply. They have a great selection.
