Pool Construction

Pool Construction Process

At Blue Custom Pools, we believe the pool construction process should be efficient, collaborative and totally centered around you. When it comes to your swimming pool, you have a vision, and it’s our job to bring it to life. We start with clear communication—we guarantee no surprises and that we will always keep project information up-front and up-to-the-minute. Throughout design and planning and well into construction, we will work together closely, every step of the way. Below, please find some key project steps, along with what to expect during each phase.

1. Layout

After design is finalized and you are satisfied and comfortable with the final look, we stake out the footprint of your new pool. This allows you to see how the pool will fit in your backyard. We don’t break ground until you see the location and position and are pleased with everything.

2. Fencing & Excavation

A portion of your fencing will need to come down so that our workers can access your backyard during excavating. You will know the date a few days in advance so that all pets, lawncare equipment, furniture, etc., can be safely stored away. At this time, we will dig the depth and shape of your pool based on the exact details of the design specs.

3. Plumbing & Equipment

Installing plumbing lines is a vital step, and during this time we will pressure test the lines — all while getting read-outs of the pressure to ensure the hydraulic system is working properly. Our plumbers will work to deliver the safest configuration possible with a high level of craftsmanship guaranteed.

4. Electrical

Our technicians will need to dig a 6-12” trench from your electric panel to the pool equipment (since the pool’s electrical components will connect to your electricity box near the home). We ask that you make known any sprinkler or drip lines to avoid damage, and also take steps to remove plants or other items that need safeguarding before our crew arrives.

5. Structure & Surface

Reinforced steel rebar gives your pool the structure it needs, while delivering strength and long-term durability. After building the frame, our electrical crew will install the wiring and electrical pad. At this time, the interior of the pool takes shape and is smoothed into place. After the shotcrete is cured, we will apply your choice of plaster or pebble surface.

6. Decking

Upon completion of all electrical, plumbing, gas and drainage lines, your the deck will now be formed and prepped for the installation of the rough deck. You will choose from a variety of colors, materials, and textures to create your signature look. Once these add-ons have been installed, our crew will build the pool deck according to the design.

7. Tile & Coping

Adding the beautiful waterline tile is one of the finishing touches that will make this your very own swimming pool. For the tile, you will have numerous options for sizes, styles, patterns, and colors. Six inches of waterline tile will be installed at the top of your swimming pool: three inches below the water, and three inches above the waterline.

8. Interior Finish

After the decorative tile for the waterline has been installed, the interior finish will be applied. This usually takes 1-2 days, depending on the type of interior finish. Plaster usually only takes one day, while some stone interiors could require two days. You will be advised on the amount of time expected.

After construction is completed, we will clear the area to leave you with a perfectly clean backyard. Construction debris will be removed, your fence will be returned to its original appearance, and we will tend to any landscaping that was adjusted during construction.
