To give you an idea of what to expect in your backyard during the installation of your new pool or spa, we have broken down the process into 15 stages. We welcome you to ask about any of the steps involved, or ask any other questions you may have.
1. The Site
Prior to excavation, we will stake out your new pool or spa. The layout is based on your custom design, and upon your approval, we are ready to dig it.
Roll in the heavy-duty equipment, it’s time to dig a big hole. In most cases, it will take about one working day to complete the excavation of your pool and remove the soil from your yard. If you’re interested in keeping some of the soil for other parts of your yard, just let us know prior to excavation.
Our plumbers will install state-of-the-art equipment to efficiently clean and purify your pool water. Based on your geographical location, this step may be performed before or after the shell is formed.
4. Steel Placement
Steel reinforcing rods are placed inside the excavation, along the bottom, up the sides, into the bond beam, and around the skimmers. Firmly wired together, these rods add to the strength and long life of your pool shell.
At varying stages of construction, detailed inspections are performed by your project manager. In addition to these inspections, local building authorities will also require inspections. We will handle all inspections and contact with the local authorities. All construction is guaranteed to meet or exceed every city and county code requirement.
6. Pool Shell
A concrete mixture is pneumatically applied under great pressure to bond tightly around the steel reinforcing rods. This results in a reinforced steel and concrete pool of superior strength.
Our craftsman install the “coping” – or the “lip” of your pool – around the pool’s perimeter. Some options are safety-grip brick, stone, or white pre-cast concrete. Also in some pools, cantilevered decks that extend right to the pool’s edge are used instead of coping.
The tile is installed along what will be the waterline of the interior of the pool. Tiles are available in a wide variety of colors and designs.
Licensed electricians hook into your main electric service and connect your filtration and lighting systems. This stage requires four additional inspections.
10. Gas Lines
If your pool has a gas-fueled heater, a gas line will be installed from your gas meter. All gas lines are installed by trained qualified technicians.
The decking that surrounds your pool can be concrete, brick, stone, grass, or many other materials. This is the final stage before the pool shell finish is applied.
Most communities require you to provide a fence and latched gate around your new pool. We will help to familiarize you with the local requirements. Before we proceed, your fencing will have to be completed and inspected by local authorities.
13. Waterproof Finish
Our crews will now cover the surface of the pool with a durable waterproof finish that seals it and provides a beautiful finishing touch. A white plaster finish is the traditional choice of pool finish, but a PebbleTec finish (shown) can offer many more color choices
14. Pool Start-Up
Water from your garden hose or other source will be used to fill your pool. Once filled, we will come to your home to start up the equipment and show you exactly how the equipment works and what chemicals are needed. This is the time we show you how to maintain your pool.
15. Jump In And Swim
Get out the floaties and snorkels. It's time to enjoy yourself.
