All site prep starts with obtaining the proper permits, if required, and identifying where utilities are located within the project area. The excavation area is then prepared by outlining the pool dimensions with spray paint or using a pre-fabricated template that matches the pool design. Most of the digging will be done by an excavator, which will remove the vast majority of the dirt. Care is taken to follow the outline of the pool by only slightly digging beyond the dimensions of the pool and leveling the pool within the excavation area.
Once the pool is set level, the process of adding water and backfill begins. First, 6” of washed sand or 6” of gravel is placed around the bottom radius of the pool. This is called “locking in” the pool. Once the conditions are right to start pouring concrete, the deck surrounding your pool will begin taking shape. An equipment pad will be strategically located on the project site to hold the pump, filter, heater, electrical equipment, and other options that may be part of the installation. Setting up the forms, pouring the concrete, bonding, and letting it settle can take anywhere from 2-3 days, depending on the weather.
