Residential Pool Construction Process



Residential pool construction begins with your swimming pool company designing your pool based on your requirements and preferences.

In most cases, it will take about one working day to complete the excavation of your pool and remove the soil from your yard.

Residential Pool Construction - Excavation


Steel Placement

Steel-reinforcing rods are placed inside the excavation, along the bottom, sides, bond beam, and around the skimmers. Firmly wired together, these rods add to the strength and long life of your pool shell.

Plumbers will place the lines and fixtures around the form of the shell. Licensed electricians hook into your electric service and connect your filtration and lighting systems. An inspection of the final work is arranged.

Apply Gunite

A concrete mixture called gunite is pneumatically applied under great pressure to bond tightly around the steel reinforcing rods. This results in a reinforced steel and concrete pool of superior strength.

Tile and Coping

Tile is installed along what will be the waterline of the interior of the pool. Craftsman install the coping – or the “lip” of your pool – around the pool’s perimeter. Some options are safety-grip brick, stone, gunite boulders or white pre-cast concrete.
