Why Choose a Pool Company like ours for Installations?

When you work with our pool builders, you can get the reassurance and confidence you need when investing in an aquatic backyard oasis by knowing you have the most dedicated experts on your side. While our approach to installing swimming pools can vary depending on the type of design, terrain, space and other factors involved, we’ve refined the process down to a fine art. That way, we ensure your dream inground pool installation is performed seamlessly. Before we begin, we will always be upfront about the steps and costs involved, including your budget, site costs, and any potential limitations related to your new pool that may exist.

Our Installation Process

Here is an insightful look into how we go about our inground swimming pool installation process:

Designing Your New Pool

Working closely with each homeowner, our pool installation experts will consult and develop a plan, scope, and design of the inground pool to align with your desires. This will include detailed site plans to map out the excavation, any underground structures that require diligence or permits, along with plans for fencing, paving and landscaping.

Excavating the Site

Once given the green light to move ahead with the site plans, the excavation process will begin. Our inground pool builders will outline the specific timelines when they will be digging the area. This enables us to prepare it for the pool shell installation.

Installing the Swimming Pool Shell

Following the excavations, the granular base, formwork, and rebar will be delivered and diligently installed into the ground. This step will also include any necessary plumbing fixtures, equipment and filtration parts. Once installed, all components will be thoroughly tested to ensure they’re ready for the next step.

“Shooting” the Concrete

The heavy concrete “shell” will undergo a shotcrete treatment, encasing the re-bar and fittings, lights, niches, and otherwise. The structure of your swimming pool serves as the solid base onto which we add the finishing touches such as coping, tile, and plaster.

Finishing Up

Once all the details are in place and fully secured, the pool builders on our team will consult with you to ensure everything is ready for those hot summer days and hassle-free maintenance. We’ll go over the essential components of modern swimming pools, including the functions and equipment that are important to understand as an owner. Then, we’ll hand it over to you, meaning it’s all set for quality family time!

Our priority is to ensure that our clients are thoroughly satisfied with everything we do. Every job involving inground pools requires special care, a passion for details, and technical know-how. That’s why we go above and beyond with full transparency during every single step for an exciting, straightforward and hassle-free experience.
