When you work with Benson Pools, you can get the reassurance and confidence you need when investing in a pool, knowing you have the most dedicated experts on your side. While our pool installation process can vary depending on the type of pool, terrain, space and other factors involved, we’ve refined the process down to a fine art to ensure your dream pool is installed seamlessly. Before we begin, we will always be upfront about the steps and costs involved, including your budget, site costs, and any potential limitations that may exist.

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

Creating the Design

Working closely with each homeowner, our Ottawa pool installation experts will consult and develop a plan, scope and design of the poolscape 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 pool builders will outline the specific timelines when they will be digging the area to prepare it for the pool shell installation.

Installing the 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 be shotcreted, encasing the re-bar and fittings, lights niches etc. This pool structure is the solid base to which we add the finishing touches such as coping, tile and plaster.

Finishing Up

Once all of the details are in place and fully secured, the pool builders will consult with you, show you all of the components of the pool, including the functions and equipment that are important to understand. Then, they will hand it over for you and your family to enjoy!

Our priority is to ensure that our clients are thoroughly satisfied with every pool installation we take on. That’s why we go above and beyond with full transparency during every single step for an exciting, straightforward and hassle-free experience.
