One of the most exciting and fascinating parts of every fiberglass pool installation is the moment the pool shows up on the truck and is carried to the backyard. Crowds assemble, the cameras start flashing, and the kids all run to grab their bathing suits.  

This crowd-pleasing process actually requires great skill and precision. The pools normally weigh anywhere from 1,500 to 3,500 pounds, and it is common to have access lanes to the backyard just a foot or two wider than the actual pool. 

This video shows the process of unloading a fiberglass pool off of a tilted trailer and setting it into the hole.
