Prior to any work being done, we paint the shape of your pool on the ground as a guide for the excavators. You approve the pool’s outline and position prior to the scheduling of the dig.
Our unique excavation specifications include vertically excavated walls and flat floors. This creates a safer, more enjoyable and spacious swimming pool compared to the industry norm.
Your pool plumbing and equipment are the guts of your pool. Done correctly, a pool’s hydraulics will ensure years and years of trouble free enjoyment with minimal maintenance. Special features standard on our pool include dual main drains for safety, two high flow skimmers and looped returns for balanced water flow.
Steel rebar is placed throughout your pool on a steel grid pattern. The steel reinforces the tensile strength of your pool’s concrete shell. The vast majority of pool companies use standardized steel specifications driven with the belief that the least expensive is the best. Our steel specifications will be developed and engineered for your particular pool, in your particular soil and with the unique load and stress of your pool design. Our one-pool-at-a-time engineering generates steel plans that will have a grid patterns that are typically 8” apart. Under boulders, near the patio or fences, and in other stress areas, we will place steel on 6” grids. We have never had a structural failure due to too little steel. We will not sacrifice long term durability and peace of mind to save a few dollars!
Standard Features include a full –sized pool light with remote control abilities. A time clock and control panel will be placed at the equipment for daily, effortless pool system control. Many optional lighting and spa control systems are available to meet your budget and needs.
We use a special mix of gunite that test to 4000 psi. Industry standards are as low as 3000 psi. Our additional mix adds compaction strength to the concrete shell.
7. Masonry and Rock
Like all the initial phases of construction, our masonry and rock work are built and engineered with long-term durability in mind. Now we add a new criteria—-appearance. Our rock installers and masons are closer to artists than construction workers. You may have chosen our pool because of our precision work, customer service reputation or how our pools look. Now you will see why we shine above our competitors. It comes down to pride in what we do, the attention to detail and the artistry these crews put into their work. The bottom line is if it doesn’t look great, we will do it again until it does. This approach develops crews who do it right the first time!
Tile deck, spray deck, pea gravel decks, pavers, colored concrete — you dream and we can do it. The large horizontal covering we call a pool deck is the most visible part of your pool. A deck must be well built for durability, heat resistance and chip resistance. It must stay in place, withstanding the movement of the soils it is built on.
9. Interior Surfaces
Again, there are many choices here. Tile surfaces, pebble surfaces, stone surfaces, plaster and an array of colors and textures allow for the pool to be individualized for your décor and needs. These surfaces must resist a wide variety of chemicals, constant attacks from hard water scaling and the sun. Our project manager will discuss the features, benefits and costs. Whatever your choice, we pledge the highest quality in materials and workmanship.
