All About the Gunite Pool Building Process
Design and Permits
Our staff will visit your backyard and take measurements. They will discuss your ideas and plan on feasibilities.
A 3D model will help you understand how your pool will look in real. Any changes or additions will be furnished at this stage.
After the signing of the contract, we’ll obtain the permit for construction. The issuance of permits varies according to location.
Layout and Excavation
The design of the pool is presented on the pool construction site, which shows the precise size and shape of the pool and other features.
The next step is excavation. The time required for digging will vary depending on the topography of the property. For a yard with a slope, a pool retaining wall will be constructed at this stage.
Plumbing and Electrical Equipment
This phase involves the installation of electrical and plumbing lines, skimmers and gas lines. Additional options such as in-pool lights, fire features are all added.
Steel Rebar Framework
Engineering plans are monitored closely for the installation of steel around the gunite pool, reinforcement of shell, and prevention of cracks. The steel rebar frame comprises horizontal and vertical bars that strengthen the pool.
The application of gunite is the essence of the whole pool construction process. After preparing the gunite, it is sprayed onto the rebar using a pressurized nozzle. Additional features like steps are manually added to the pool.
The pool shell is then left to dry for days. Watering is required 2-3 times for a week or more.
Tiling, And Other Features
While the shell of the pool is curing, it’s time to add pool coping and perimeter tiles. Pool enhancing features such as deck jets or fireplaces are also added at this phase.
Pool Interior and Landscaping
The pool interior is completed, which includes waterproofing. The interior is cleaned to get rid of plaster dust. This stage also includes the addition of landscaping features.
We now inspect each individual piece of equipment to make sure everything’s working perfectly. After cleaning up any residues, we fill the pool with water, add chemicals and start your newly constructed dream pool.
