C&D’S Installers, Inc.
Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey
I want to introduce you to C&D'S Installers, Inc. They
provide above ground pool installation services in the states of
Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey. The company
is owned by Cynthia and Dwight Harmon. They started the
company back in 1995 and have continued to grow beyond their home
state of Maryland. Their mission statement is much like my
own, "Our goal is to provide a quality service and a finished
product you will enjoy for many years to come."
Dwight was kind enough to provide me with plenty of photos of his
work and I wanted to make comments on some of them, so let's get
These photos can be

This is how a typical
installation looks when the installers are done. This is done just like
all my installations with plenty of grass cleared, and dirt leveled, beyond the
pool area. The photo below shows how the pool should look after a couple
Keeping all the vegetation away from the pool
is one of the most important things a new pool owner can do and rock landscaping
like this is one of the best ways to do it. C&D'S Installers provides this
service. It's an option you can add onto your installation but one worth
This is so important I wanted to say it twice,
this is just after the installation.
This is just after the
landscaping. The grass will grow back to the landscape border but not
against, or under, the pool.
The next three pools are oval
installations. They all feature the landscaping around the outside, just
how an above ground pool should look.
Oval pool installations are
what separate the bad installers from the good ones. The good ones, like
these done by C&D'S Installers, are level with perfectly straight sides. It
is so easy for inexperienced installers to rush through setting the braces and
wind up with a big mess. I hear about it all the time.
An oval pool with fencing is the
ultimate challenge. If the pool is not level, and built with straight
sides, the fencing will look awful. This pool looks like a perfect
installation, a pool that can be enjoyed for many years.
A lot of the questions I get in my
question and answer section of this site have to do with leveling, especially
leveling yards with a lot of slope. Here are a couple examples of leveling
I love the use of retaining walls
to keep all the dirt in place. This looks like a lot of extra
work but more than worth the effort if you want a pool that will be
around year after year.
This is another example of some
extreme leveling and the use of a retaining wall.
This is an excellent job of leveling
the ground and making sure it will stay in place. I love the fencing going
up the wall. The work on this pool is still in progress as it is still
being filled. My guess is the fence will continue until the pool is
childproof. That's a consideration I wish more parents would pay attention
If a ladder is to remain in
the pool when it's not in use it should look like this. That
would be a little difficult for a child to climb.
C&D'S Installers will install a
new liner in your existing pool. From time to time all above ground pools
need new vinyl installed. If you don't have the knowledge or the time let
the professionals handle it.
