There are a lot of things to think about when it comes to the pool construction process. In this article, we are going to talk more about what to expect and some things you need to know before you move forward with your project.
Pool Construction – What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You
If you are not properly prepared for your pool construction, you could run into surprises that are not pleasant. Properly preparing to have your pool installed and working with professionals that help you understand how the construction process works are important.
#1 – Permitting & Engineering – After you have decided on the design for your pool construction, the engineered plans have to be finalized and all permits have to be pulled.
#2 – Excavation – The crew that is going to take care of your pool construction will stake out your property to show the layout of the pool. Heavy equipment will be brought in to dig and remove the dirt and steel reinforcing bars will need to be installed. This phase is where an inspection is going to be required. Many times this where delays can happen since building inspectors and weather may delay your project.
#3 – Tile & Plumbing – The lines for your plumbing are going to be put under the surface and your tile and pool equipment will be installed.
#4 – Grading & Decking – The ground around your pool will have to be graded for your deck and then the installation of the deck happens.
#5 – Electric and Equipment – You have to have a licensed electrician to perform all necessary electrical work.
#6 – Keeping kids safe – Your door and window alarms, an approved safety pool cover, self-latching doors and safety fences must be installed.
#7 – Cleanup – There will be a cleanup crew that comes in to clean up any pool construction materials that are still around and they will level the ground that is around the pool.
#8 – Interior Finishing – You will get the interior finish of your choice and your pool will then be filled with water.
#9 – Starting Your Pool – Now is when the fun starts and you will be instructed on how to maintain your new pool and add any needed chemicals.
Don’t Forget to Ask Questions
There could be unexpected expenses that come up if you don’t ask. Is there a dirt hauling fee or other fees that go with any of the other parts of the project? Asking these questions could keep you from any hold ups because you’re trying to get the cash together to finish your project. Being thorough before the project is going to keep you happy throughout the rest of the process.
