Installation - What to Expect

Installation - What to Expect

Pool Installation Process

Before you can enjoy your beautiful new pool, you might have to endure a few weeks of inconvenience in your backyard. Once you’re past the stage of excavation and into the fun of designing, you’ll see that it’s all well worth it. There are three key stages of pool construction:

Digging a Pool

Excavation

An access way to your sit will be made to begin excavation. The pool layout will be marked so that you can protect any trees or areas from being affected by the pool. Your builder will need to gather all of the necessary permits, and then the heavy equipment will be brought in to dig the hole. Underground utilities will need to be checked before the digging begins.

Pool Framing

Framing

Your builder will set and secure the substructure of your pool to keep it in place, then the bottom of the pool will be shaped and smoothed. The plumbing system will be positioned, and any necessary wiring will be installed. Your builder will then frame the surrounding deck and walkway areas.

Swimming Pool with a Hot Tub

Finishing

The interior finish will then be installed. Gunite pools are finished with pneumatically applied concrete. Vinyl pools will have a liner installed and fiberglass pools will have a one-piece shell installed. Once this is complete, the pool will be filled with water and the builder will finish it off with coping, decking and anything else you’ve planned for your poolscape.
