Insulating Concrete Form (ICF) Pools

Getting the most splash for your cash

ICF swimming pools are faster and less expensive to build and offer far greater savings in return. Insulated concrete walls prevent more than 60% of the heat loss of the pool, extending your swimming season while saving you money.

Insulating Concrete Forms are one of the most versatile building products on the market. While ICFs are more frequently used for many structures including homes and commercial buildings, they are growing in popularity for building swimming pools because of their versatility, construction advantages, and end-user benefits.

What are Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs)?

ICFs are two foam panels connected by plastic webs or ties that join the panels, provide placement options for securing rebar, and form insulated studs

Filled with concrete and left in place they provide extremely high-density insulation and air-tight sound-proof walls that are resist high-wind speed and other natural disasters while reducing energy-use more than 60%. ICFs designed to create the strongest structure, create less waste, and install faster than other blocks on the market. ICFs are measured based on the concrete core width.

ICF Radius Forms

Radius forms are also available making it easy to form any shape

These forms are designed to ease construction of energy-efficient ICF pools, southwest style homes, bay windows, circular staircases, and provide options when designing unique areas in ICF homes.
