Custom Pool Project Design and Proposal (Building Process Step 1) The first step in the construction process is an initial meeting between the client and one of our trained design technicians. During this meeting, our technician will find out what you, as the client, are looking for in the overall pool and landscape layout. All of our pools are designed specifically for each individual customer. Plans from architects or landscapers are also welcome. The technician will then take a detailed survey of the proposed area to include home and lot dimensions, positioning, building setbacks, location of utilities, and accessibility to the construction site. Within a few days, our design technician will have a fully prepared plan and proposed construction cost for the pool organized for you to review.
Swimming Pool Permits and Approvals (Building Process Step 2) We shall acquire the permit for the construction of the pool and decking. Permits for electric and gas utility hook-ups shall be obtained by the person contracted to do said work. Any supplementary permits, such as for a poolside cabana or easement variances will be the owner or general contractor’s responsibility. All plans must comply with local and state building codes. We will call 811 in order to locate all existing utility lines before the beginning of construction. We will call for all applicable inspections, including footer, plumbing, and electrical bonding.
Marking off the Swimming Pool Layout (Building Process Step 3) When the plans have been approved by you or your authorized representative and all necessary permits have been obtained, the construction process may begin. Our representative will go over the construction stages with you and help to set the pool elevation. Next, the form boards are set with great care to ensure the pool is in the exact location required.
Swimming Pool Excavation (Building Process Step 4) After the forms are set, the excavation of the pool may begin. We generally use small, skid-steer front end loaders in order to precisely trim back the pool walls and to provide added maneuverability within the pool and around the construction site.
Applying the Structural Steel to Pool Project (Building Process Step 5) The pool shell is reinforced with Grade 60 #3 steel rebar, placed horizontally and vertically. The horizontal and vertical bars are placed 8″ on center to a depth of five feet. If the depth of the pool exceeds five feet, the horizontal bars are placed at 6″ on center. The beam has 4 bars of #4 rebar.
Laying the Stub Out for Swimming Pool Construction (Building Process Step 6) Rough plumbing, or “stub out” is done immediately following steel installation. This entails the installation of main drains, skimmers, light niches, return line “stubs” and pre-plumbing of raised spas.
Applying Pool Floor and Gunite (Building Process Step 7) The pool floor consists of concrete with a compressive strength of 4000 psi, and is a minimum thickness of six inches. The walls of the pool consist of a mixture of sand and cement (gunite) that is applied through a hose with highly pressurized air to achieve a compressive strength of 4000 psi. Because of its superior structural strength, we provide a two year warranty on the pool shell after completion.
Laying the Tile for Custom Pool Design (Building Process Step 8) After the completion of the gunite phase, you will be asked to choose a decorative tile for the pool. We have a selection of over 150 different tiles for you to choose from. No matter what colors, textures and materials are being used for the project, we will have something to fit your taste.
Running the Plumbing for Swimming Pools (Building Process Step 9) The plumbing for each pool is designed specifically to give it the best circulation and filtration for crystal clear water and ease of maintenance. We perform hydraulic calculations to ensure that all equipment and piping are of the correct size to combine water clarity and energy conservation.
