What Really Happens When you Decide to Build a Pool

 
.If you’re considering installing a pool in your backyard, you are probably wondering what the entire process entails. While there are many steps in the pool building process, we have outlined the main points below. Take a look!
.

Step 1: The customer (you!) calls us and we go to their house to discuss what they would like to build, see if it is feasible to build a pool, etc. We then draw up a formal proposal, make adjustments, draft a contract, and then sign!
.
Step 2: Once the pool design has been finalized and agreed upon, we engineer the technical details and obtain the necessary permits. If any adjustments need to be made, we do so and then proceed.
.
Step 3: Now it is time to dig the pool! This usually only takes one day, but for larger pools it can take longer.
.
Step 4: Next is the installation of steel and plumbing. This typically takes anywhere between 2-6 days, again depending upon the size of the pool.
.
Step 5: After the pool has been dug and the steel and plumbing have been installed, it is time for gunite! This is completed in one day, and effectively serves as the concrete shell of the pool.
.
Step 6: With the gunite poured, it’s time for tile! The tile borders the top perimeter of the pool, and adds to the overall aesthetic value. This is one of the ways which pool owners can infuse their personal style into the pool.
.
Step 7: If the swimming pool design includes a water feature(s), now is when it will be installed. This could be a waterfall, sheer decent, fountain, etc.
.
Step 8: Now it is time for the deck to be formed and poured! This whole process usually takes between 3-7 days. Our decks are poured with concrete and can have a rock salt, stamped, or smooth finish.
.
Step 9: Once the deck has been poured, the pool pumps and equipment can be installed and connected to the previously installed electrical and plumbing.
.
Step 10: It is finally time to install the pool finish! This is usually PebbleTec, PebbleSheen, or PebbleFina, and is customizable so pool owners can choose the water color and texture of their pool.
.
All that is left to do now is to fill the pool with water! Usually it takes about 2-4 days, depending on the available water pressure and the size of the pool.
.
So there you have it! That’s what the pool building process looks like. If you have any specific questions about the process at all, let us know below, we will be happy to help you!
