Below is brief description of how each is built.

Concrete (gunite) pool construction

These pools are entirely built on site from a combination of plaster, concrete, and steel, then steel rebar is bent and tied into place after the first excavation. Gunite is either then shot or poured into place, which forms the shell of the swimming pool. Coping and tile work are next, then the plaster finish is spread onto the surface of the swimming pool shell.

Fiberglass pool construction

These pools are shipped to your home in one piece. The hole is dug, and then a base material is deposited in the bottom of the excavation for the swimming pool to sit on. After that, a crane or other piece of equipment is used to lower the pool into place. Once the leveling of the pool is done, the material is deposited around the outside of the swimming pool, at the same pace the inside of the swimming pool fills with water. There are various ways to achieve this, and our expertise has taught us that some techniques generate better results compared to others.

Vinyl liner pool construction

These pools use a thin flexible liner, roughly the thickness of ten paper sheets, to hold the pool water in the structure of the swimming pool, which is built using metal or plastic side walls and cement based product, which is spread onto the earthen floor of the swimming pool.

How long does pool construction usually take?

This will depend on the type of swimming pool. A normal turn-key fiberglass swimming pool project will often take anywhere from 3-6 weeks to complete, though the pool shell is in the ground and filled with water after a few days. This quick install time is without a doubt an advantage on fiberglass swimming pool projects, which start in the Spring to early Summer as these people will be able to enjoy their swimming pool during the peak of swimming season.

Since concrete pools are constructed entirely on site, they take a lot longer to complete, usually anywhere from 2-5 to five months on average.

Vinyl liner swimming pool installations are relatively fast, often taking a bit longer compared to a fiberglass pool installation.
