Q&A with the builder
Q. What was the major benefit of using ICF over traditional pool kits?
A. The major benefit of using ICF for a swimming pool is that there are no limitations for the depth or design of the pool. ICF’s are very versatile and lightweight which are a perfect combination for building a pool.
Q. Why did you choose Amvic?
A. I chose Amvic because the material was readily available to me and I have worked with Amvic in the past on several projects for a hotel chain. Amvic ICF’s are durable and the design makes for an easy and secure install.
“I was able to overcome the need for help by utilizing ICF which can be self-performed by a single qualified installer. ICF’s allowed for any design since it is versatile, able to make field changes based on on-site conditions. I was able to add seats inside the pool. I also know that a plaster or tile finish is the highest and most durable finishing in the pool industry and ICFs provide the ability to achieve that.
I was also able to have a 10ft pool vs 8ft pool in traditional Vinyl Pool Kit. Overall I am very satisfied with the way the pool turned out.”
