The Installation Process
Before you can enjoy your beautiful new pool, you have to endure a few weeks of “unpleasantness” in your backyard. Once you’re past the trauma 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:
EXCAVATION begins after an access way to your poolsite has been made. Your builder will mark the pool layout in your backyard, and you’ll work together to make sure that any trees and areas you want to protect are clearly marked. You and/or your builder will need to gather all of the necessary permits, and then the heavy equipment will be brought in to dig the hole. Make sure that your builder has properly checked for underground utilities before construction begins.
FRAMING is the next step. 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. Now it’s starting to look like a pool! The plumbing system will be positioned, and any necessary wiring will be installed. This is also when your builder will frame the surrounding deck and walkway areas.
FINISHING is the home stretch. Now it’s time to install the interior finish. It’s different for each type of pool. 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.
The Finishing Touches
While many of your customized features have already been built into your pool and deck, there are still some additional touches needed to complete your poolscape, including landscaping cleaning systems and safety features. Throw in some toys and comfortable pool furniture, and you’ve created an unbelievable family destination you’ll enjoy for years to come.
