Our Process

 Step by Step

Step 1

Excavation, Rebar, Plumbing and Gas Line Installation

Excavation & Plumbing Installation

Once the excavation is complete, plumbing lines are installed. These lines include water supply and return lines, as well as drainage pipes.

Rebar Placement

Rebar, short for reinforcing bar, is a crucial component for reinforcing the concrete structure of the pool. This reinforcement adds strength and durability to the pool’s structure.

Gas Line Installation

If the pool will have a gas-powered heater or other gas-powered features, such as fire pits or grills, gas lines are installed during this phase.

Inspection

Once the dirtwork, plumbing, rebar, and gas lines are in place, an inspection is conducted to ensure that everything meets local building codes and safety standards.

Step 2

Shotcrete Application

Preparation

Before applying shotcrete, the pool’s excavation and plumbing work should be completed. The rebar reinforcement should be in place and properly secured to provide structural strength to the pool.

Mixing

Shotcrete is a mixture of cement, aggregates (such as sand or small stones), and water. These components are mixed in precise proportions to achieve the desired consistency and strength.

Application

Shotcrete is applied using a high-pressure hose or nozzle. It is pneumatically projected onto the pool’s surfaces, such as the walls and the floor.

Shaping and Finishing

As the shotcrete is applied, pool builders shape and sculpt it to create the desired contours and features. Finishing touches can be done to achieve the desired texture and appearance.

Curing

Curing typically involves keeping the concrete surface moist by covering it with plastic sheeting or using a curing compound. This process allows the shotcrete to harden.

Waterproofing and Surface Treatments

A waterproofing membrane or coating is applied to prevent water penetration. Surface treatments, such as tile or plaster finishes, may also be added to enhance appearance & durability.

Step 3

Hardscaping and coping are added to the pool

Preparation

The construction team prepares the area where the coping and hardscape will be installed. This involves cleaning the surface, ensuring proper drainage, and leveling the ground as needed.

Coping Installation

The coping material, such as natural stone, pavers, or concrete, is carefully installed around the perimeter of the pool. Proper alignment and spacing achieves a consistent  appearance.

Learn More About Coping

Hardscape Construction

This may involve laying pavers or concrete for pathways, decks, or patio areas surrounding the pool. The chosen materials are installed according to the design plan.

Finishing Touches

This can include the installation of outdoor furniture, decorative elements, planters, or lighting fixtures to create an inviting and enjoyable space.

Clean-up and inspection

Once the coping and hardscape installation is finished, the construction site is cleaned up, and any debris or excess materials are removed. A thorough inspection is conducted.

Step 4

Waterline and Step Tiles

Preparation

Before beginning the installation, the pool surface where the waterline and step tiles will be placed should be clean, dry, and free from any debris or contaminants.

Tile Selection

There are various options available, including ceramic, glass, porcelain, or natural stone tiles, each with its own aesthetic and functional characteristics.

View Our Tile Selection

Measurement & Layout

Precise measurements are taken to determine the placement and spacing of the waterline and step tiles. This helps ensure a visually appealing and symmetrical installation.

Adhesive Application

A suitable adhesive or mortar is applied to the back of each tile using a notched trowel. The adhesive is carefully spread to ensure proper coverage and adherence to the pool surface.

Tile Installation

The tiles are individually placed onto the adhesive, aligning them with the layout lines and maintaining consistent spacing between each tile.

Grouting

The grout is spread over the tiles using a rubber float, ensuring that the gaps are completely filled. Excess grout is then wiped away, and the tile surface is cleaned.

Curing & Sealing

After the grout has set, the tiles need time to cure and dry. This usually takes a few days, during which the pool should be kept empty or covered to protect the newly installed tiles.
