Phase #1: From Concept to Reality
Phase #2: Planning and Permits
Phase #3: Excavation
- First, they will ‘pre-grade’ your swimming pool site. This allows the contractor to have a smooth canvass in which to work.
- Second, your pool will be ‘staked out’ with an outline. This is only done after the approved design phase.
- Dirt removal – This final phase is rather important to document and outline before it’s completed. Typically if you’re going to have additional landscaping completed, you’ll require some fill dirt. Always clarify with your swimming pool contractor the details before they start digging and removing dirt.
Phase #4: Forms and Reinforcement
Phase #5: Plumbing
Phase #6: Gunite or Structural Cement
Unless you have a pre-fab fiberglass pool being installed, you’ll then enter the gunite phase. This is where the hole in the ground in your backyard begins to look like an actual swimming pool.
Phase # 7: Electrical & Gas Lines
Phase #8: Décor
During this phase your new swimming pool receives its personality. The swimming pool contractors will add tile accents, decking, waterfalls, or other enhancements and cool features that make your pool unique.
